Often invoked in IWillWaitForYou to confirm that the love really is that steadfast. See also, TheLostLenore. It is common (and indeed, [[DoubleStandard in many cases]], ''expected'') for a YamatoNadeshiko or other variety of ProperLady.

* Many superheroes have this as their [[WomenInRefrigerators defining tragedy]]. ThePunisher never gets over the murder of his wife and children (no matter how many criminals he kills). GreenLantern John Stewart claims he'll never fall in love again after the death of his wife Katma Tui. Etc.

* ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys''. Hercules felt this way about his wife, who had been murdered by Hera. In one episode he politely turned down the [[AllAmazonsWantHercules proposition of a band of Amazons]], saying he was still in love with his wife. [[spoiler:He does eventually get a SecondLove in the form a Ceryneian Hind named Serena, but [[StuffedIntoTheFridge Ares kills her]], [[CartwrightCurse putting this trope back in play]]]].

* [[PlayingWithATrope Sort of played with]] in the backstory for Dr. Noonien Soong in ''[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS7E9Inheritance Star Trek: The Next Generation]].'' When his wife, Juliana, died, he created an android replica of her. Although the android Juliana had the memories of (and believed herself to be) the original, Noonien ultimately realized it was not the same as actually having his wife back and retreated into his research out of guilt. Unaware of her ReplacementGoldfish status and thinking Noonien was simply becoming MarriedToTheJob, the android Juliana left Noonien, and he spent the rest of his life playing this trope straight.

* Booker Dewitt from Videogame/BioShockInfinite. His wife died almost twenty years earlier and there's no indication he's ever remarried. Not the mention he received a double blow with also losing his daughter.
* Shulk of Game/XenobladeChronicles goes through this after losing Fiora to Metal Face. Of course, [[HeartbrokenBadass it also gives him motivation to go and kill every mechon ever.]]
