* In ''{{Psych}}'', Shawn's ex-girlfriend, Abigail, says she can't take the stress of his job anymore after being kidnapped by Mr. Yin.
* On ''{{Warehouse 13}}'', Pete was about to reveal the true nature of his work to Kelly, but having just had a small sample of that dangerous world, she breaks it up with him and leaves.
* Cyborg's girlfriend Katherine in ''{{Smallville}}'' decides (between episodes) that she can't handle what he's become and so leaves him.

* A non-scifi example occurs in the ''Series/{{House}}'' episode "Fools for Love." A young, interracial couple show identical, unexplained symptoms that turn out to be [[spoiler: symptoms of a genetic disorder they inherited from their shared father.]] Foreman tries to explain that they're not [[spoiler: "really" siblings since they didn't grow up together]], but it's implied the wife can't accept it.



* ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra'' contains a more relatable form of this trope, near the end of season two. [[spoiler: Despite the fact that Korra and Mako legitimately love one another, their personalities simply clash too much in the context of a romantic relationship. After bickering throughout the season, they finally agree that they can only work as close friends.]]

[[AC:{{Fanfiction}}]]
* In chapter 41 of Fanfic/InFlight, [[FateStayNight Rin]] states that this is the case in regards to her Pride as a magus. It won't allow her to be part of anyone's harem or share Shirou with anyone other than Saber. Shirou himself mentions that to humans, love just isn't enough at times. To a distorted LoveFreak like Musubi, who believes in the absoluteness of ThePowerOfLove, it causes her great anger and confusion.

* ''Franchise/DieHard'': John and Holly clearly care about each other, but their marriage is already strained in the first movie. While Film/DieHard ends with them back together, ultimately their relationship can't survive John's ChronicHeroSyndrome. They're officially separated by movie three and divorced by movie four, adding to John's KnightInSourArmor bitterness.

* Happened to an Officer in his probationary period in the background of an early 1967 ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'' episode. While the speech Sgt. Friday gives upon learning this covers most of the potential reasons that this Trope would be invoked, he leaves out the "long nights of waiting" reason which was later covered in the first episode of the 1970 Season.
