* J. R. R. Tolkien's ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' has his most famous love story, Beren and Luthien. He's a mortal man, she's an immortal elf. Her father couldn't keep them apart. Sauron couldn't keep them apart. Morgoth couldn't keep them apart. Not even death itself and the Valar could keep them apart. In Tolkien's work, elves and men had different fates after death; elves would go to a Hall in the Undying Lands and eventually be resurrected, while men would leave the world entirely to places unknown. When Beren died, Luthien died of grief soon after and sang a song of such sorrow that Mandos, who judges over the souls who come to his Halls, was moved to pity for the first time in his life. So he gave Luthien a choice; be resurrected and live among the Valar, forgetting Beren and her grief, or she and Beren can return to life and live together, but she will become mortal and leave the world with Beren when she dies, separated from her family forever. She chose the latter.

* The various [[TheFlash Flashes]] use their loved ones as an emotional tether to avoid bouncing uncontrollably through time or being absorbed by the Speed Force their powers draw upon. Specifically, the couple whose love is demonstrably the strongest is Wally West (the third Flash) and Linda Park. When Abra Kadabra retcons Linda from existence, Wally has nothing to ground him and falls into the Speed Force after running too fast. He ''still'' ends up being pulled out of it by Linda.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', this is played straight if [[spoiler: you choose the Sacrifice Ending (having the Avatar kill Grima knowing that s/he will be erased from existence if s/he does so.) with a married Avatar. Sh/he ''is'' erased as the price for vanishing Grima forever, but ultimately returns to his/her friends and spouse/children.]] Though if you include ''[[TheFourLoves other]]'' [[TheFourLoves kinds of love]] aside of romance, like [[TrueCompanions friendship]] or [[PatrioticFervor love for the continents/countries]] or [[spoiler: familiar love (Mom or Dad Avatar to any of his/her possible children)]], then it's '''always''' played straight.

* ''FanFic/{{crawlersout}}'': It seems Tom Riddle will always be drawn to Harry Potter, no matter the time or place. The summary even outright states that he will let nothing stand between him and Harry, be it time, space, or even Dark Lords.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Barry Allen and Iris West are, without a doubt, each other's OneTrueLove. Married on alternate earths, falling in love immediately when meeting for the first time in an alternate timeline -- it will always be the two of them, in the end.
-->'''Iris''': In my mind, wherever you go, you'll always be Barry, and I'll always be Iris. And we always find each other.

* In ''Anime/VoicesOfADistantStar'', junior-high sweethearts Mikako and Noboru are separated when Mikako is selected as a HumongousMecha pilot and sent with the fleet into space. As the fleet does not have FTL communications technology, the only means of contact the two have is email, with increasingly long delays in transmission - first six months, then a year, until finally Mikako ends up eight and a half lightyears from Earth. The anime does some deconstructing as both Mikako and Noboru struggle to cope with the separation - Noboru at one point even making up his mind to give up on Mikako, saying that "a distance that takes eight years at the speed of light is no different than saying 'forever'," - but ultimately plays the trope straight in its final scenes.
