* Pretty much Dante Alighieri's whole body of work but especially the ''DivineComedy'' is built around one of these. Not {{Truth in Television}} only because he seems to have confined it to his literary side.

* In the {{Deryni}} novels, Kelson puts off the thought remarrying for a couple of years or so after Sidana is slaughtered at the altar by her brother, and procrastinates a further two or three years after Rothana refuses him after Conall's execution. In this interim, Kelson is [[IWantGrandkids pressured by his mother]] and his courtiers to provide for the succession. Rothana finally picks out another woman to marry him (his cousin Araxie Haldane) and persuades each of them that their marriage would be for the best.
* ''TheTimeTravelersWife''. Clare never gets over Henry, doesn't remarry, just waits around to see him one last time when she's 80.

** King Robert Baratheon never stopped loving Lyanna. Even when he married Tywin's daughter Cersei, he called her "Lyanna" in bed on their wedding night. Unsurprisingly this caused a lot tension between them.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut The Impossible Astronaut]]", River Song says that her worst fear is having to do this after the Doctor no longer knows her (because of the TimeyWimeyBall their relationship is happening roughly in reverse for each of them, she knows the Doctor more after each visit, but he knows her less because she's meeting him earlier in his timeline). This makes her first (last?) appearance and HeroicSacrifice in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoNSS4E9ForestOfTheDead Forest of the Dead]]" all the more poignant.

Often used as a CynicismCatalyst. Done poorly, can result in StalkerWithACrush tendencies. This old love may not hold up if a ManicPixieDreamGirl appears. AntagonistInMourning is the villainous example.

* Nobody would try to replace a loved one the day after they died, and this trope is pretty much the same thing. It's just that sometimes those feelings ''never'' go away, no matter how much one rationalises that they need to move on. Love and loss are not subject to the will. Speaking deeper, one wouldn't want to FORGET about their times and deep bond with the departed or relinquish them, they would see this insulting to the memory of their loved one; However, whether they will decide to move on in their romantic path or not depends on the person themselves.

* A mild example from ''TigerAndBunny''. Even years after his beloved wife Tomoe's death, Kotetsu still wears his wedding ring and is [[ObliviousToLove completely unaware that one of his female teammates has an enormous crush on him]]. He also keeps a portrait of Tomoe, which he occasionally confides in and visits her grave whenever he can.

* {{Pulp}}'s "Disco 2000" is a song written from the "married to someone else" point of view of this trope; the singer is convinced that he and his love are right for each other, even if they were nothing more than friends and she's now married with children. By the end of the song, he's so determined just to meet her again that he doesn't care if she brings her child to a meeting he's suggesting.
