* In ''Series/{{Oshin}}'', the protagonist is working in Tokyo and then in Sakata and writes to her husband Ryuuzo, who is in Saga, regularly. However, when she moves to Sakata Ryuuzo stops writing to her, so she comes to believe that he has remarried and ditched her. [[spoiler: What actually happened is that Ryuuzo's [[MeddlingParents very possessive mother]] Kiyo has been intercepting their correspondence, and Ryuuzo doesn't even know Oshin has left Tokyo. When Oshin's HopelessSuitor Kota writes to Ryuuzo ''and'' Ryuuzo's sister-in-law Atsuko deduces what's going on, Ryuuzo gets ''pissed off'' and screams at Kiyo to leave him alone, then properly writes to Oshin and explains what happened.]]
