* Once {{Nana}} “Hachi” Komatsu decides that she's going to be more mature and start being friends with guys she meets, she begins a serious relationship with Shoji, whom she decides to follow to Tokyo. When she gets there she wants to keep house for him “like a wife”, but after a while he starts cheating on her and leaves her for the other woman. Things just go down hill for her after that.

* ''{{Enchanted}}'''s Giselle is a subversion, as she is a naïve damsel who wants to do Robert's housework (with the aid of adorable critters like roaches and rats). Both Robert and Prince Edward want to protect her, but in the end she's the one who saves Robert when he's in danger.
* Julia Stiles's character is an inversion in ''MonaLisaSmile'' when she stood up for her decision to be a housewife to Julia Roberts's character saying, “You're the one who said I could do anything I wanted. This is what I want.”

* Averted by Hungary and Liechtenstein from ''{{Hetalia}}''. The first went through a GirlinessUpgrade, but her fighting skills did NOT decrease [[CurbStompBattle as Prussia can attest]]. The second is softspoken and quiet, but she handles her brother Switzerland's HairTriggerTemper very calmly.

It might be that the dependent wife or girlfriend is [[YourCheatingHeart betrayed]] and abandoned or the [[GirlsNeedRoleModels strong independent woman]] succeeds where the sweetheart fails. She might grow into a stronger person and even have a loving, healthy relationship by the end of the story, but don't count on it. Basically the [[StepfordSmiler good girl image]] will be used as an excuse to be cold, cowardly or clingy. Subject to UnfortunateImplications, as if to suggest that it's true that RealWomenNeverWearDresses or NiceGuysFinishLast. Contrast the YamatoNadeshiko and the sit-com {{Housewife}} (who are domestic but strong) as well as the MamaBear (who is strong and maternal) and TheChick (who is strong but kind-hearted). Compare NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished, BeingGoodSucks, DoggedNiceGuy, BreakTheCutie, and TheIngenue.

* In ''Felicity Learns A Lesson'' of the ''AmericanGirlsCollection'', all any female cares for is learning how to serve tea and do stitchery, except the protagonist, who would like to attend college to study Greek, Latin, philosophy and geography, just as the young gentlemen do.

* ''{{Smallville}}'''s Lana Lang can be a little too faithful of a girlfriend. Seen best in Nicodemus when Lana tells Whitney that she feels like she's “locked in this relationship out of guilt.” A little later she talks to Lex referring to her usual self as an insecure little girl. She's also a big contrast to the self reliant Lois Lane who will end up with Clark.
* In ''KyleXY'' there's Amanda Bloom, who ended her first relationship of the series when she learned that he had cheated on her. She says that she ends her relationship with Kyle, not because he kissed Jessi, but because she can't be with him when she's losing him to someone else.

* In the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E1TheReturnOfHarmonyPart1 The Return of Harmony Part 1]]" from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Discord tried to use this trope to hypnotize and corrupt Fluttershy.
