* ''Film/KateAndLeopold'' depends on this as well.
to:
* ''Film/KateAndLeopold'' depends on this as well.well: Leopold, a Victorian Duke, travels forward in time from 1876 to 2001 and falls in love with modern woman Kate. However, if Leopold doesn't return to his own time when the temporal portal re-opens, history will be altered and any impact Leopold would have had on history (including all of his descendents and the invention of the elevator) will cease to exist. [[spoiler:He ends up going back, and Kate chooses to join him in his time rather than remain in the present.]]

* Doc Brown and Clara Clayton in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'' have something like this, but the fact that Clara was supposed to have died (and survived only through Doc's [[JustForPun timely]] intervention) may help simplify matters. ** In the end the seem to choose option C. Live sort of outside of time traveling through the past and future with their flying train. *** Due to some other time-related shenanigans in ''The Game'', [[spoiler:Doc is left in charge of his father's estate (he wasn't in the "older" timelines) and, thus, the Browns take partial residence in Doc's house in the 1980s.]] * In fact, the same actress (Mary Steenburgen) faced a similar decision in ''Film/TimeAfterTime''. Playing a modern woman who falls in love with H.G. Wells on his trip to the 20th century, she finally decides to return with him to the 1880s. "I'm not makin' any promises, but when we get back, I'm changin' my name to Susan B. Anthony". * TheFilmOfTheBook ''[[{{Weenalized}} only]]'' of ''Film/PrinceCaspian'' has this between Caspian and Susan, who are from different worlds, but have no romance at all in the original books. Interestingly, the Pevensie siblings never married in all the years they ruled Narnia, despite all but forgetting they came from another world and despite ''The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe'' mentioning Susan and Lucy having many, many suitors (but the only one we ever meet personally is a [[BreakTheHaughty haughty]], [[TheEvilPrince evil prince]]).

* Comics/Vampirella ,in the last Warren Issue, has a Multiverse traveler falling in love with her. When things go haywire, he tries the next universe. [[note]] Bonus {{Squick}}: Selfsame traveler had been much later retconned to be the biblical Cain by Harris. And much later Cain has been retconned to be Vampirellas father by Dynamite. [[IncestIsRelative Maybe they should do the research next time...]]

* ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree'' plays with this. Jake travels from 2011 to 1958 so he can prevent the Kennedy assassination, but along the way he falls in love with the lovely Sadie. At first, he plans on simply staying in the past and living out his life with Sadie, but after [[spoiler: her psychotic ex-husband destroys half her face with a kitchen knife]] he promises her he'll take her back to his time where she can receive a better treatment for the injury. [[Ultimately he doesn't get to do either, as Lee Harvey Oswald ends up killing Sadie in 1963 instead of Kennedy.]]

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Owain, Severa, and Inigo]]]] struggle with this trope if they marry and have children, especially considering the very real possibility that their children may choose to stay in the world they grew up in.

* In ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima'' Saito is summoned by Louise to alternate world. If not for the implication that one can return to Earth by flying toward a eclipse there would be no choice possible to make it this trope. * ''Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne'': [[spoiler: At the end it looks like they both returned to their own worlds, but in the final scene, Van appears riding the Escaflowne on Earth. It ends there so it's up to the viewer to interpret what happens next.]]

Webcomic/Homestuck repaired
* In ''Webcomic/Homestuck'', at least a third of the extra-dimensional aliens have fallen for various human characters, and vice versa. They seem to be [[TakeAThirdOption taking a third option]], and creating a new universe entirely for all of them to live in.
