** The elders Queens of the Unseelie Court, Queen Mab, Queen of Air and Darkness, and her mother Mother Winter, embody this idea. Both have a caring side, a loving side even. Mab genuinely loves her daughter Maeve, the Winter Lady, but the duties she holds as Queen, and Mother Winter in her own, take precedence. Mab will complete her duties, even if she must die herself or sacrifice 10,000,000 soldiers. If she is needed, her job as Queen takes first priority. Her job? Besides ruling over a kingdom of cutthroat psychotic murderers and monsters is [[spoiler:defending the gates of Reality itself, to prevent the cessation of all Existence]].

For this reason, Mother Winter calls Mab a romantic]].

* In ''Manga/DeathNote'', despite being ''far'' more competent as an investigator, Naomi Misora has agreed to [[QuittingToGetMarried quit her FBI job]] and become a {{Housewife}}, while allowing her fiance Raye Penbar to investigate Kira. (He says [[ForYourOwnGood it's to protect her]], because he worries about her in such a risky line of work, though it comes across as him being sexist (and possibly emotionally abusive)). It does ''not'' end well, for either one of them.

to:

* Subverted in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' Dean and Lisa make a real go of this. Even after she finds out about just how dangerous the Hunter's life is she still chooses to stand by him. However, being as this is ''Supernatural'', it doesn't end well. His work, as well as his extreme devotion to Sam puts a serious strain on their relationship, as well as the emotional state of Ben who has at this point come to see Dean as a father. It comes to a head at the end of Season 6 where Demons kidnap the two of them and nearly kill Lisa. Rather than put them to any further risk, Dean decides to have Castiel [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy wipe their memories of his existence to protect them, and allow them to move on.]]

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' zigzags around this with regards to Clara Oswald and Danny Pink. She is tries to maintain a relationship with Danny while adventuring with the Doctor. Danny is reluctant to go along with this, but allows it for a time until the Doctor forces Clara into a SadisticChoice scenario and she decides to, for want of a better term, "break up" with the Doctor. Unknown to Danny, however, Clara's "higher calling" - or addiction, as she calls it - wins out and, coupled with the establishment of an off-kilter LoveTriangle with the Doctor, she continues to adventure with the Doctor in secret, with Danny unaware of this. It does not end well.

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Kallen comes to accept that she loves Lelouch [[spoiler:beyond his Zero persona]]. However, when Lelouch [[spoiler:becomes an EvilOverlord, she makes it her personal mission to kill him and end his tyrannous reign]].
**However, although she ends up choosing duty to her people over love in the end, it is interesting to note that Kallen has admitted that if Lelouch had been honest about his feelings for her (i.e. that he sees her as more than a friend), she would have followed him to hell. Lelouch was fully aware of Kallen's undying loyalty to him, and thus refused to answer truthfully, if at all, when asked what she means to him, wanting to make sure [[spoiler:she got to live on peacefully after the revolution, and not be dragged into his schemes as the Demon Emperor]].

* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' plays around with this a fair bit, at least for the main romance. Sarah deals exclusively in this until [[TheyDo she doesn't]]; Chuck, while on the receiving end until [[spoiler:Prague]], has been known to reluctantly take the high road.

to:

* In ''Film/BridgeOfSpies,'' James Donovan's efforts to defend accused Soviet spy Rudolf Abel puts him and his family at risk of bad publicity and violence. His wife implores him to stop, but he continues, and later attempts the prisoner exchange without telling her because he thinks doing the right thing is what's most important. When she finds out what he did she isn't pleased at first, but ultimately she smiles as if to accept that she loves him precisely because he stands up for what he believes in.
