* There is an entire genre of ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfiction called the Marriage Law fic which centers around the Ministry forcing people to get married to a partner of the government's choosing in an effort to rebuild the population after the losses in the Voldemort war(s). This provides a way of forcing the start of a relationship between two parties who would not plausibly seek to be with each other. There is also a subgenre in which one or more characters is horrified by either the law in general or their chosen partner in particular, and try to do something to get out of the marriage, usually either by marrying someone else before the law comes into effect, fleeing the country, or starting an outright rebellion.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' fanfic series ''[[http://higherarrowsfic.livejournal.com/24262.html Five Loaves of Bread]]''[[note]]Link requires joining the comm to read.[[/note]] includes this. The Capitol arranges everything about its subjects' laws -- where they live, where they work, and if and who they marry. It's technically possible to indicate a preference either way, but the the government is entirely free to ignore it when it suits them.

* In ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', the Tau Empire has a system of arranged breeding. Couples are selected on the basis of genetic advantage and sent a summons from a "Procreation Committee" to spend a day together trying to concieve. After conception, both partners will go their seperate ways, and any children from the union will be raised communally by trainers of their caste (though parents may take an interest in and visit the children).

* In "Series/BetterOffTed", the company starts listing suggested partners for all the single employees based off of genetic compatibility, hoping that the resultant children cost the insurance plan less than usual. Phil, already married, gets an offer for a free vasectomy.

Very few people would want to be part of an ArrangedMarriage, but it's not all bad. After all, usually your parents are the ones selecting your spouse, and they know you and love you and want you to be happy. Or at the very least, they don't want you [[SpannerInTheWorks throwing a tantrum at the altar]] and destroying the [[AltarDiplomacy alliance they've been planning for years]]. They may have other, higher priorities than your happiness, but your happiness does usually matter. Therefore, there is at least some prayer that your spouse will be [[PerfectlyArrangedMarriage someone you could grow to love]].

Oh and one guy gets in on it too.

* In ''Literature/TheHaremGames'' constestants are married by an 'Omiai' treated as a market where the teenage males pick 6-15 brides to help them in the upcoming battle royale fight to the death. The brides have no say in the matter. Alex is unusual because during the selection ceremony, he was bedridden as a result of a horrific, unprovoked beating, where he couldn't retaliate, and his brides were not only chosen for him, but most of them ''actively petitioned'' for the role.

* Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar series: The reasons and political maneuvering behind the various forms of ArrangedMarriage among the nobility are a theme of ''Closer to Home''. In an attempt to resolve a [[FeudingFamilies feud between two noble houses]], the Prince commands that House Raeylen marry their only son to House Chendlar's oldest daughter. This backfires badly when it turns out Chendlar's ''youngest'' daughter has fallen hard for the son, and he manipulates her in a scheme to kill off both families and inherit their lands.
