* At the end of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' things seem to be going very well between Leia and Han. By the time of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' however, [[spoiler:their relationship is largely over. Han has returned to smuggling and Leia is still in a leadership position in the Rebellion/Resistance. The relationship did produce at least one child (whose turning to evil is indicated to be the cause of the breakup)]]

* The second season of ''DaCapo'' subverts this: The protagonist of the first season is constantly minded by his haremettes and there are hints that his first season love interest either broke up with him or died... [[spoiler: Only it turns out she just moved away for a bit and comes back at around the halfway point of the series]].

* Soaps frequently sent their supercouples riding off into the sunset, only to bring one of them back a few years later with the news that the marriage is over. Even Luke and Laura of ''Series/GeneralHospital'' would have fallen to this had Anthony Geary not put his foot down and refused to play Luke without Laura.

General examples are not allowed.
[[AC:Fanworks]] * Often done in {{Fanfiction}} with the OfficialCouple when the fanwriter wants to write about the FanPreferredCouple without the pesky task of actually having to write the breakup. Considering [[MurderTheHypotenuse the]] [[DieForOurShip alternatives]], [[TropesAreNotBad this method really isn't all that bad]].

* In ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', [[LonersAreFreaks Jonathan Jarocki]] and [[PerkyGoth Anna Chase]] broke up before they got on the bus, as revealed in Anna's opening post, mainly due to the fact that [[StrangledByTheRedString the pairing was almost unanimously hated among the writers]]. In universe, it's implied that ''[[YourCheatingHeart something]]'' went on between Chase and Dawne Jiang [[KissingUnderTheInfluence during a drunken evening]], leading to the former breaking up with him out of guilt. [[spoiler:This leads to major SurvivorGuilt from her when ''both'' Dawne's and Jon's deaths are announced, on the same day no less.]]

* In ''[[GundamSEED Mobile Suit Gundam SEED]]'', Dearka Elsman and Miriallia Haww seem to be headed vaguely in the direction of becoming a couple, and apparently do so following the end of the series - only to have broken up before the beginning of sequel series ''Gundam SEED Destiny''. ** Ditto for Amuro and Sayla in the end of [[MobileSuitGundam the original series]] and the beginning of ''[[ZetaGundam Zeta]]''. And then again for Amuro and Beltorchika in between ''Zeta'' and ''Anime/CharsCounterattack''.
