* Most of the plot of ''Manga/TwinStarExorcists'' revolves around the ArrangedMarriage between Rokuro and Benio. The reason is that an oracle predicted their child would be The Miko, [[SecondComing the reincarnation of Abe No Seimei that would wipe out the impurities once and for all]]. [[spoiler: The fact that all attempts during the previous thousand years ended up [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy killed by said Impurities before they could have children]] shows pretty well that whoever decided it, they didn't really care for their safety.]]

* In ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'', heiresses whose fathers die become wards of their father's lord, and they (and more importantly their lands) will be married off to the lord's benefit. It's technically illegal to simply sell her for money, but in practice, this is often laughed at.

* ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' has a friendship variant. Flashbacks show that after [[spoiler:Togo�s]] first tour of duty as a [[MagicalGirlWarrior Hero]] ended and she was released from the hospital, the Taisha deliberately arranged to have her family move next door to [[spoiler:Yuna�s]] family, because they knew [[spoiler:Yuna]] had extremely high potential as another Hero and wanted the two girls to become friends.

* 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 one 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.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' [[Literature/DoctorWhoNovelisations novel]] ''Doctor Who and the Doomsday Weapon'', many people on Overindustrialised Future Earth work for faceless megacorporations that "take care" of their employees, arranging their accommodation, education, and, if the Company considers it necessary, marriages. They do try to arrange compatible matches, but probably only because unhappy employees are bad for productivity, and the matching process involves a stack of employee profiles and a computer in the personnel department, as opposed to, say, people getting to meet people. (The marriage ceremony involves their files being stapled together). One character recalls agreeing to be married as a condition of his next promotion, and then hearing no more about it until he returned from a business trip to find his new wife waiting for him in the kitchen. At first he's much more interested in his new apartment ect. but as she cheerfully chatters away, informing him that they are likely to be in debt to the Company for the rest of their lives, he notices she's very pretty....Resulting in a PerfectlyArrangedMarriage.

* Arguably, Hermia's situation in ''AMidsummerNightsDream''. The original arrangement with Demitrius doesn't qualify, since that was arranged by her father and Theseus was just enforcing the existing law allowing an ArrangedMarriage. However, once Theseus expanded his ruling to allow Hermia the option of joining a convent instead, it could be considered this trope.

Maybe the government needs you to marry someone in order to secure an important alliance. Maybe you're the next link in the super-solider breeding program. Whatever the reason, the powers that be have declared that this marriage has to happen.
