* In the ''Literature/HomecomingSaga'', protagonist Nafai and his three brothers get married to four women they barely know, in order to pair them up in preparation for a journey to [[AdamAndEvePlot reestablish humanity back on Earth]]. Somewhat mitigated as they all belong to a culture where marriage is a one-year contract, renewable annually, so this isn't so out of the ordinary for them.

* A mix of this and CitizenshipMarriage happens on ''Series/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.
