* Among the reasons why ''UruseiYatsura'''s Ryuunosuke is sometimes considered the inspiration for Ranma (squabbling father and only child, vicious battles, gender confusion, father's a [[AbusiveParents freaking maniac]]) is because she also has an Arranged Marriage made between her father and one of his own friends, and thus a fiance she'd rather do without. In her case, though, she has to deal with a LoveableSexManiac WholesomeCrossdresser rather than a CovertPervert {{Tsundere}}.

* ''Franchise/DragonAge''. In the [[EnslavedElves City Elf]] origin, you have an arranged marriage to another city elf. It's out of necessity rather than politics (elves are treated as second-class and relegated to slums). [[RapeAsDrama It doesn't]] [[DeathByOriginStory end well]].

It's out of necessity or perhaps tradition rather than politics (elves are treated as second-class and relegated to slums). How your character views the situation is up to you - it's entirely possible that you're happy with the situation and so is your spouse. Of course, [[RapeAsDrama It it still doesn't]] [[DeathByOriginStory end well]].well]] when the local nobility decides to [[DroitDuSeigneur have some fun]].

* In Wrede's ''The Seven Towers'', Prince Eltiron's domineering father betroths him to Princess Crystalorn from a neighboring kingdom. Both characters are horrified by the idea, but once they meet and survive the book's plot together, they rapidly slide into a PerfectlyArrangedMarriage.

Added DiffLines:

** Jiminez Hoffmann accidentally arranged his own marriage - he proposes a way to end a generations-long war by arranging a marriage between the Talpini prince and the Arguron princess. Of course, there's a species barrier - the Argurons are more or less human, but the Talpinis look like giant moles - but that's easily fixed. The Talpini king has adopted Hoffman as his son, so ''he'' can get married to the princess instead!

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/SanoIchiro'' series takes place during Japan's [[JidaiGeki Edo Period]] when arranged marriages were common as ways of establishing power among the ''daimayo''. ''Miai'', or a meeting between families to arrange a marriage plays an important role in several books. The main character is no exception; Sano undergoes a ''miai'' and is wed in the fourth book to Reiko, an Edo magistrate's daughter. It takes some time for them to get used to each other. They finally bond over the mystery Sano is working on and eventually turn into HappilyMarried.

* In Masaki Kobayashi's ''SamuraiRebellion'', the son of a prominent samurai is ordered by his daimyo to marry a concubine who has fallen from favor. At first, he objects, but as in some of the other examples on this page, the couple eventually find happiness. Later, the daimyo's primary heir dies and he demands the concubine back. The samurai (played by ToshiroMifune) refuses, as he wants his son to have the happiness he was denied in his own loveless Arranged Marriage. This ends [[DownerEnding about as well as you'd expect]].
