* In some states (e.g. Colorado) that allow common law marriages it is possible to wind up married to someone merely by reffering to tham as your spouse, provided all the other conditions have been met (cohabitation, holding themselves to be a couple in the eyes of the community, etc.)

* In ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}} II'', Jim Raynor's [[TheLancer Lancer]] Matt Horner once got himself married to the mercenary Mira Han after winning a card game, claiming he didn't know what the prize was going to be. [[http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Mira_Han A portrait of his lovely wife.]] Needless to say, he made little to no effort to stay in touch with her. This didn't stop her from using the alias "Mira Horner".

* About halfway through Creator/EstherFriesner's ''Majyk by Accident'', the protagonist is saddled with a [[strike:elven]] Welfin wife when he takes her hand to go to dinner. She's pleased because she loathes the Welfin way of life, the other Welfies are pleased because it means they can make demands of the protagonist, and nobody really cares what he thinks of it.

And at any rate, many religions have instituted "formation programs" (such as the Catholic Church's "Pre-Cana" program) which serve as instruction courses in what marriage is supposed to be, as well as simultaneously being "cooling off periods" for those who may have been hasty and screening programs to weed out those who are not intending to be faithful or who are under duress or drunk or [[UruseiYatsura who accidentally said the wrong thing while grabbing an Oni's horns]].

* Literature/TheVoyageOfPaulTwister opens with an interesting twist on this trope: [[spoiler: Aylwyn tricks Paul into unwittingly acting out his part in what is apparently a valid marriage ceremony among her people, but when she breaks the news to him, he turns out to be just fine with it, because he's wanted her since the first book anyway.]]

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Jon Snow accidentally invokes the wildling marriage custom of bride-stealing, when he is unable to kill her and instead lets her go. This is one of the few genuinely humorous moments of the series, though it is overshadowed by the two of them actually falling in love.
