Added DiffLines:

* Toma's good ending in ''[[VideoGame/AmnesiaOtome Amnesia: Memories]]''. Unlike his normal ending in which he is ''not'' EasilyForgiven by the heroine or the rest of the cast for [[spoiler:drugging her repeatedly without her knowledge and ''locking her in a cage'' to "protect" her]], his good ending has the heroine instantly forgive him which gives off ''really'' uncomfortable StockholmSyndrome and LoveMartyr vibes.

** As the main entry states, [[GenderFlip Marge isn't safe from this either]]. In a newer episode, Bart and Milhouse try to get Milhouse's parents to split up again by placing one of Marge's bras in Kirk's bed, which Luanne finds and shows Homer who, understandably upset, confronts Marge, who then kicks ''him'' out of his own home. There's also the fact that, any time Homer is involved in a plot where it looks like he may cheat, he's incredibly upset at the prospect, whereas Marge was actually ''contemplating'' cheating on Homer with Jacques.

To be fair, that was in the first season, when the characters that everyone knows today clearly hadn't been fully decided yet.

* Stan in "Film/NightmareAlley" repeatedly rips off and uses everybody he meets, including his girlfriend (and later wife) Molly but she still loves him, despite the fact that by the end of the film, he's a hopeless alcoholic and even a carny geek.

* In ''{{Frasier}}'', when Niles' marriage to Maris begins falling apart, there are several occasions where Maris tries to win him back, often causing Martin and Frasier to pretty much ask this question. Differs in that Niles generally listens to them, or had concluded that he didn't want to get back with her on his own after the first time he did take her back right at the end of their marriage, only for her to promptly turn around and cheat on him with their marriage counselor. This was the straw that broke the camel's back, and he never seriously considered taking her back again. Later on, when they've almost finalized their divorce, Maris begs him once again to reconcile, sending him gifts and love letters, only for him to explicitly invoke this trope to her face. [[{{Yandere}} She tries to sue him for every cent he has in retaliation.]] Yeah, there's a reason the writers felt there was no way any actress could do her character justice.

* In "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCPqaG8sVDE It's My Party]]", the narrator's boyfriend Johnny leaves her for another girl, Judy. He does this ''at her birthday party''. And apparently this decision was pre-planned; Judy has a ring to show for it. In the sequel song, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yy7aPyNuPxA Judy's Turn to Cry]]", the narrator convinces Johnny to come back to her. She spends the entire song gloating that it's [[TitleDrop Judy's turn to cry]], without ever addressing the question of why she wanted Johnny back in the first place, after how he treated her.

* In ''AStreetCarNamedDesire'', Stella runs off from Stanley after he beats her up, however, seconds after ''[[SignatureScene that]]'' scene, she runs back to him. Blanche calls her out for it and even asks her [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim what she sees in him]]. It's been implied that this happened several times. The Film subverts it as in the end, she runs off from Stanley after what he did to Blanche.

* ''MagicalDiary'': The player character's friends not only wonder this, but are furious if they find out that you've taken up with Damien again. Considering that, by this point, he's come close to killing you - and certainly not for lack of ''trying'' - it's a wonder that they don't ask that you be locked up for your own safety. Potsdam herself isn't thrilled by your asking to let him back in for the May Dance either, pointing out that she's given him four years' worth of second chances and some things are beyond redemption. Notable in that Damien himself doesn't try to argue that he should be forgiven for his actions or that he even ''can'' redeem himself for them.

* ''HotGimmick'' with Ryoki and Hatsumi's relationship. They break up and get back together countless times. It mostly ends with Ryoki going to Hatsumi, demanding her to ask for forgiveness and tell him she wants to become his girlfriend again. Which she does each time, without fail. This is also the reason why so many fans hated the ending. [[AuthorsSavingThrow The author decided to make a novel continuation where Hatsumi ends up with a much nicer man]].

* Dodie from ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' provides a platonic example. She is [[TheScrappy hated]] by fans and seen as a two-faced, backstabbing BitchInSheepsClothing. For some reason Ginger never ditches Dodie even as adults in the DistantFinale. It's most noticeable when Dodie and Macie tried to break-up Ginger with her new boyfriend because they were upset she wasn't spending enough time with them. Ginger calls them out at the end of the episode yet in the very next episode there are [[KarmaHoudini no consequences]]. Ginger references the situation so it's not a case of NegativeContinuity either.
