* One episode of ''HeyDude!'' had a subplot where a group of [[{{Ruritania}} generically Eastern European]] guests were visiting the ranch, and one character accidentally proposed marriage to a young girl.
* In ''HappyDays'', Fonzie and Jenny go as bride and groom to a costume party on a yacht and, after an incident involving a performance with a [[MarriedAtSea minister played by the ship's captain]], think they've accidentally gotten married, to Jenny's delight and Fonzie's horror.

* On ''WhosTheBoss'', after a trip to South Carolina in which they signed in to a motel as "Mr. and Mrs.", Tony and Angela somehow ended up as Common Law spouses under S.C. law. The ensuing effort to annul the marriage was less about ending the marriage than about Tony and Angela awkwardly dodging their own feelings on the subject.

* Ross and Rachel in ''{{Friends}}'' engage in the drunk-in-Vegas variant of the trope.

* ThatsSoRaven once got accidentally engaged to a visiting foreign prince. She though a series of gifts (something like a rock, a feather, a bracelet, and a dress) was just flirting, when it was actually a proposal, and the party she was attending was intended to be their wedding. When she explains the situation to the prince, he understands and releases her, no hurt feelings.
* In Series/{{Castle}}'s season 6 finale, Beckett and Castle discover (much to their shock and disgust, since they are getting married in a few days) that she drunk-married the boyfriend she had at university during a trip to Las Vegas. Most of the episode deals with Kate trying to get him to sign the annulment papers. It turns out the 'husband', a small time con artist, knew what happened all along but instead of contacting Kate and getting a divorce, he has been telling people that she had an accident and has been in a coma for the last fifteen years. This way he could maintain a 'semi-married' state where he would be free to date other women but his girlfriends would not pressure him to divorce his wife and marry them. Kate is definitely not amused when she finds out about that.

* The displaced Earthwoman in Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''{{Restoree}}'' is similarly clueless about the significance of the hero's use of the possessive 'my lady' in addressing her. However on his planet marriage really is just that simple - though equally easy to get out of - not that she wants to.

** Also in both the TV series and Manga, there was a story where a little earth girl with a crush on Jariten gave him some chocolate on valentines day, then telling him that by accepting it he'd promised to marry her. Everyone but Jariten found the whole thing cute and funny.

* In ''Literature/{{Gate}}'', 33 year old Itami cares for the 15 year old Lelei and innocently sleeps in the same room with her. Little does he know that she has a crush on him and in her people's culture, a man and woman sleeping in the same room together for three or more nights in a row is a marriage. The other girls in his life are not pleased, while he is freaked out.

* OlderThanFeudalism: In ''Literature/TheAeneid'', Aeneas is "married" to [[GirlOfTheWeek Dido]] in this manner. Juno has the nymphs singing and the lightning crashing, and to Dido, this resembles a marriage carried out by the gods. But to Aeneas, it was just a few hours alone in a cave during a storm with a nice girl. [[WomanScorned You know what that means]]... well, [[GenreSavvy Aeneas sure knew]].
