* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', after Eva Ushiromiya noticed that her father Kinzo was upset that Natsuhi and Krauss were having trouble having a child, she decided to convince her then-boyfriend Hideyoshi to marry her quickly so that they could have a child who could usurp the place that Jessica would eventually have in the succession. Hideyoshi, who had already lost his relatives and was eager to start a family of his own, agreed. Despite Eva's motives, the two are quite HappilyMarried and actually the most stable of the married couples.

* In ''Literature/ArciaChronicles'', after rescuing his UnluckyChildhoodFriend Jaquelin re Flo from [[spoiler:his own brother Geofrey]], who tried to force her into marrying him for her money, Alexander storms the Archbishop's house in the middle of the night and demands he and Jaquelin be married right that moment. While everyone thinks this a case of NobilityMarriesMoney, he is actually doing it to protect the poor girl from any more unscrupulous suitors--especially since a marriage conducted by an Archbishop can only be ever annulled by ThePope himself, who can hardly be bothered to.

* Played straight then averted on an episode of ''TheSteveHarveyShow'' when Romeo and his GirlOfTheWeek decide to go to Missouri to elope. ButtMonkey Lydia spills the beans to Steve and Regina. They arrive just in time to stop the couple from getting married. Of course, the girl is never seen or mentioned again. * A mix of this and CitizenshipMarriage happens on ''WhatsHappening''. Rerun tries to do this with a girl named Maria played by [[TheElectricCompany Irene Cara]] who needs a green card so that she can stay in the US. The judge realizes that in addition to them getting married just for a green card, they know nothing about each other. The judge stops the ceremony explaining that just because they get married she could still be deported. He offers to help her find another way to stay in the country instead. * On ''TheParkers'' Kim and Jerel go to Las Vegas to elope. Nikki and The Professor try to stop them, but they are too late. The marriage is annulled when Jerel's mom reveals that he is only 17 and not 19 like he told Kim. * On ''DowntonAbbey'', deconstructed, somewhat; Daisy feels pressured into going through with [[spoiler:the wedding due to William's impending death]], and subsequently feels that the whole thing was a lie.
