* In ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'' William Wallace's first love was his ill-fated wife Murron, who he fell in love with since childhood but was executed shortly after their wedding for getting into trouble that led to a fight with a group of English soldiers stationed at their village who tried to rape her. Subsequently, the Princess of Wales Isabella would start to fall for him after hearing of his story, and the two would form a mutual respect and romantic attraction after finally meeting face-to-face. The two would go on to conceive a child as well. Though it should also be noted that as William dies he sees his wife appear to him in the crowd as if welcoming him into the afterlife with her.

* In Creator/JaneAusten's ''Literature/SenseAndSensibility'', Marianne Dashwood's disbelief in second loves is a major plot driver. Not unsurprising, she [[spoiler:finds her first love unworthy of her, and ends up falling in love again [[MayDecemberRomance with Colonel Brandon]]]]. Her sister Elinor is also this for the man she eventually marries, and the trope also applies to the girls' mother, who was their father's second wife.

** In the ''Literature/MagicKingdomOfLandover'' series, Ben Holiday is devastated by the loss of his wife which kicks off the depression and restlessness that leads him to purchase Landover. In fairy lore, the first man a sylph lays on eyes on will be her true love, and Ben is the man Willow meets. He has a devil of a time moving on from his first wife's death, never mind accepting Willow's fairytale attitude towards their future. Willow's loyal persistence eventually defeats Ben's brooding despair.

** An interesting example with Rachel. Her first love is Finn, and he has been portrayed as her true love. While they were broken up in season 1, she dated Jesse before getting back together with Finn by the end of the season. Finn was supposed to be her endgame, but [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim the character died when his actor Cory Moneith died]]. As a result, Rachel eventually (after a long period of grieving) marries Jesse and is shown to be very happy with him. So Jesse ''is'' her second love, but in a roundabout way.

** Although she had been in several relationships before, Ted was the first man Robin ever fell in love with, while Barney was the second. And although, after she and Barney broke up, she had two other serious relationships, she has been in love with Barney since before the second one started (she even cheated with Barney on him) and there's something like a 95% probability that she and Barney are going to get back together for good in the end. [[spoiler:They get merried but they divorce after three years.]]

*** The player character to Zevran or Leliana in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. Also, if the player character is a female Dwarf Noble and the origin was played with her being romantically involved with Gorim, he finds a second love, gets married, and is expecting a child by the time they see each other again. She can then become involved with Alistair, Zevran, or Leliana, making ''them'' this trope.
*** The player character to Anders or Isabela in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''.

*** [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] him/herself can have one in the second game, if you romance Ashley/Kaidan/Liara in the first game and move on to someone else in the second. This can cause tension in the third game...unless your ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' romance is dead, of course.
*** In the third game Male Shepard can be one to GayOption Steve after helping him to move past the death of his husband.

* Several cases across the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'':
** Aral and Cordelia Vorkosigan to one another. Aral's history involves a loveless marriage and a secret male lover in extremely homophobic Barrayar, both relationships which end in tragedy. Cordelia talks circumspectly about an old relationship where she got left behind. Both find as true a love as possible in one another.
** Given how Elena Bothari never actually reciprocated his interest, Miles finds his actual Second Love with Ekaterin Vorsoisson in ''Komarr'', though he had a few successful flings along with his first love, Elli Quinn. He and Elli broke up mostly over their responsibilities pulling them apart. The tension between first and second loves is deliberately invoked in ''Winterfair Gifts'' when [[spoiler:someone tries to frame Elli for a poisonous gift sent to Miles and Ekaterin's wedding]].
** As for Ekaterin, Miles is her Second Love, after a marriage that started off well but ended in constant emotional abuse. It ground her down until love itself seemed horrible, made worse after her husband's death when various suitors wanted her as an eligible Vor widow to marry. Miles got through by being the one who wanted ''her'', and not as a meek and proper housewife.
** Alys Vorpatril is widowed the same day her son Ivan is born in ''Barrayar'', and though it takes close to thirty years she finally finds (or rather, is able to openly act upon) her Second Love with [[spoiler:medically discharged and retired Simon Illyan]] in ''Memory''.
