* In ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', [[{{Dojikko}} Nadeshiko]] falls [[HotForTeacher in love with her teacher]], and her parents and ''specially'' her grandfather disown her when she marries him after graduation. They disapproved of him partly because of [[MayDecemberRomance their age difference]] and mostly because he wasn't rich like them, thus either feared he was a GoldDigger or disliked his lower social class. Years later, Sonomi still hates Fujitaka. (although in Sonomi's case, it's less that he's older and poorer and more that he took her beloved cousin away from her.)

** ''A Damsel in Distress'' starts off this way, with Lady Caroline, the daughter of the Earl of Marshmorton, in love with a thoroughly unsuitable (American and not rich) young man she met on a ship voyage. The family has absolutely put their foot down, and forbidden her to even leave the house until she "comes to her senses" and chooses a more suitable mate. It turns out that this technique was actually successful with her father, back in the day.

* In ''Literature/TheOtherBoleynGirl'', Anne Boleyn furiously [[spoiler: banishes Mary from court when Mary admits that she has secretly married William Stafford and is carrying his child.]] Although not technically her mother, since Anne was Queen at the time, she could be considered a defacto guardian.

* The A-plot of ''every'' ''Literature/BlandingsCastle'' book by Creator/PGWodehouse, to the point where Wodehouse himself had his own names for all the character tropes involved. The "parent" was always one of his governess sisters, and the resolution almost invariably ended with the Hon. Galahad Threepwood (or sometimes Uncle Fred) blackmailing said sister into letting the marriage through, generally using an element of the B-plot.

* When Anasui asks Jotaro for permission to marry Jolyne near the end of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure: Stone Ocean'', Jotaro asks him if he's insane and completely refuses to justify the request with an answer. Then Anasui asks again, and he responds by snatching his daughter away from him. Perhaps Anasui would have had more luck if he popped the question when [[spoiler:the world wasn't about to end]] -- and if he wasn't a bit AxeCrazy.

* Creator/JRRTolkien's own romance, which became the basis for the story of Beren and Lúthien. Tolkien met Edith Bratt at 16 and 19 respectively and fell in love, but his guardian Father Morgan later forbade contact between them until Tolkien became a legal adult at 21. He wrote her on the evening his twenty-first birthday and found out she was engaged to another man. She broke it off, though, when she learned he hadn't forgotten her and accepted Tolkien's marriage proposal.

She broke it off, though, when she learned he hadn't forgotten her and accepted Tolkien's marriage proposal. Tolkien described their troubled courtship in considerable detail in a letter to their son, acknowledging that his guardian had a point as 'Falling in love, even a true and lasting love' is not really a Good Thing for a young man who should be concentrating on his education. Tolkien also emphasized that Edith had made him no promises and was completely free. Had she chosen to go through with her fist engagement he, Tolkien, would have had no grounds for complaint

* The Greek businessman Alexander Onassis Livanos had a SecretRelationship with Fiona Thyssen, a divorcée [[MayDecemberRomance who was 16 years his senior]] ''and'' whom he had a crush [[PrecociousCrush since he was a pre-teen]]. Alexander's parents, the powerful and rich entrepreneur Aristotle Onassis and his first wife Athina "Tina" Livanos, ''really'' disliked this and tried to sabotage their bonds: i.e, Thyssen [[BerserkButton hated]] the idea of being seen as a GoldDigger so when Onassis Sr. purchased Alexander a huge villa outside Athens ''despite knowing this'', she took it as an insult from them.

** The second one happens about 26 years earlier and is told through a diary that the main character Rose finds. The diary belongs to a woman named Hilda, and tells the story of how she was a volunteer nurse during [[WorldWarI the First World War]] and fell in love with one of her patients, Matthew. Hilda's family refused to let them get married, partly because Matthew was six years younger than her and worked at a publishing company while Hilda herself was firmly upper-class, but mostly because her parents and brothers had decided that as the only daughter, she would remain unmarried and stay at home and take care of her parents until they died.
