* 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.

* ''Literature/AliceAdams:'' The titular Alice Adams pretends to be an incredibly wealthy socialite to court a wealthy suitor that she's hopelessly smitten with. She knows it's only a matter of time before he learns that her father isn't ''really'' wealthy, but she hopes that if she puts it off long enough their love will overcome it. [[spoiler:It doesn't.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'': A rather tragic case with your companion [[HitmanWithAHeart Zevran]] and his old partner and lover, Taliesin. Taliesin shows up near the end of the game and tries to convince Zevran to help him kill you so he can return to the [[MurderInc Antivan Crows]]. If your RelationshipValues with Zevran are high enough, [[spoiler:his lingering feelings for Taliesin aren't enough to convince him to turn on you.]] Conversely, [[spoiler:if you're romancing Zevran but your RelationshipValues are too low, then it's his feelings for ''you'' that cannot overcome his feelings for Taliesin.]]
* ''VideoGame/DragonAge2'': By the end of the game, [[spoiler:Anders' love for Hawke is not enough to prevent his descent from using you to blow up the Chantry to force a Mage/Templar war like he wants.]] Conversely, [[spoiler:the player may decide that their love for Anders cannot overcome his betrayal, and they can opt to execute him.]]

** Cassandra: [[spoiler:If she is named Divine, her morals prevent her from remaining lovers with the Inquisitor since Divines must be celibate, and she breaks up with you.]]
** Cullen: [[spoiler:If you convince him to go back to taking lyrium (a highly addictive magical drug that gives Templars their powers at the cost of [[AddledAddict eventually eroding their sanity]]) for the sake of his duty, he decides that fraternizing with you would also constitute distracting him from his "duty."]]
** Iron Bull: [[spoiler:If you convince him to sacrifice his [[MoralityChain Chargers]] to remain loyal to the Qunari, LoveCannotOvercome [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Qunari]] [[{{BrainWashing}} "re-education."]]]]
** Sera: [[spoiler:Not if you're an elf who is "too elfy," it can't.]]

But sometimes, the love interest will decide the hero was right: She really can't handle it.

* Villainous example: A few Batman stories before the 1980s showed that Harvey "ComicBook/TwoFace" Dent's fiancée, Gilda, still loved him unconditionally after his transformation, but his criminal lifestyle and tendency to end up in Arkham eventually forced her to move on. The GoldenAge story that introduced him was quite different; there, she's immediately repulsed by his disfigurement, but Harvey and Gilda ''Kent'' got to keep their happy ending after a skilled plastic surgeon rescued from [[ThoseWackyNazis Germany]] successfully reforms his face.
** Batman's own troubled romances with Catwoman and Talia probably count.
