* It is said that most girls who read ''{{Literature/Cinderella}}'' (or another similar tale) only get to the words "Cinderella married the prince" and stop. They don't notice what's written next. It says "End of fairy tale".

* Ironically many of the men's right's movement is based on the painful realities of this, as (they argue)young men are abstaining from marriage because marriage and divorce laws are currently extremely biased against men. Currently the majority of divorces are filed by women under "no fault" divorce laws, yet the majority of divorce cases are decided against the husband, with the woman receiving alimony and child custody almost by default, even when it is the woman who was unfaithful or abusive... in several notable cases the man being ordered to pay more alimony than he actually made in income. This leaves the husband in a bitter catch 22: the marriage is horrible, but the only thing worse for him would be a divorce. Young men are refraining from marriage because, as the bitter joke goes, a man would be better off going out every five years, finding a woman he hates and buying her a house.

* Some jokesters liken the last line of the [[Literature/LordOfTheRings One Ring's inscription]] to wedding vows:
--> One ring to rule them all,\\
One ring to find them,\\
One ring to bring them all, '''and in the darkness bind them, in the land of {{Mordor}} where the shadows lie.'''

* ''ComicStrip/TomTheDancingBug'' parodies this with "Marital Mirth", which is stylistically modeled after "The Lockhorns". Unlike other examples the thin veneer of jocularity is removed, with every strip featuring the two talking about how much they openly hate each-other.
