* ''{{Stardoc}}'', by S.L. Viehl. Our heroine has been seeing a [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe blue space hunk]]. Things start getting hot and heavy; that's when he springs on her that if they do the deed, they're as good as married in the sight of his culture. [[spoiler:She accepts, but [[DeathOfTheHypotenuse it ends badly]].]]

* In Rachel's joke ending in ''VideoGame/BlazBlueContinuumShift'', a pair of magical glasses make pretty much every girl ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] [[HoYay J]][[IncestSubtext i]][[BrotherSisterIncest n]]) fall madly in love with Ragna. One of them, Noel actually creates a fake marriage registration, going so far as to fake the seal. However, Nirvana had it annulled by tearing it up. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill And detonating the civil administration building where the copies were held]].

* In medieval Christian canon law, getting married was a matter of saying "I take you as my wife" and "I take you as my husband" -- or words to that effect. (Witnesses were ''highly recommended'' but optional.) And when the couple had had intercourse, the courts were very lenient about what were words to that effect. Several cases turned on not what one had said, but what was meant by the words that were admitted.

Several cases turned on not what one had said, but what was meant by the words that were admitted. You see a promise of future intent "I will take you as my wife" was a legal betrothal and binding unless formally dissolved. If you followed that up with sex you were married. The opportunities for 'He said, She said' are obvious. Church courts were kept busy for centuries sorting out all the permutations.

[[folder: Real life]] * In Israel, [[Literature/TheTalmud Jewish law]] is the law of the land when it comes to marriage, divorce, and such matters for Jewish Israelis.[[note]]Islamic law is the law of the land for Israeli Muslims, canon law is the law of the land for Israeli Catholics, various Christian codes is the law of the land for each of the various sects, etc. Unless you were married in a foreign country, in which case that country's law applies. Annoying, we know.[[/note]] In Jewish law, pronouncing "You are consecrated to me through this ring in accordance with the religion of Moses and Israel" in the presence of two witnesses, then having sex, is a legal marriage. So what was intended as a joke was resolved by a legal divorce. [[http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3677927,00.html]] ** It gets even weirder, because while technically those things are all part of a wedding (though you don't even need sex, just a certain amount of time alone), even if you have some of this and not all of it, there's enough of a doubt/question that you might be married that you may actually need a divorce. And since anyone above bar/bat mitzvah can theoretically get married, stories abound of prank middle-school weddings or ultra-realistic theater weddings in which, even if they didn't do the deed, major rabbinic headaches occur.
