* In ''Film/StarWars'' Anakin tells Padme that he's going to marry her someday. Considering his abilities as a seer, this could be a childhood marriage promise (possibly foreshadowing Anakin's arrogant and demanding nature) or stating what he sees as fact.

Added DiffLines:

* A variation can occur in ''VisualNovel/LongLiveTheQueen'' if Elodie chooses to move Adair to the castle and marry him after his father passes away. It's more politically charged than the usual examples, since it's an ArrangedMarriage and Elodie sets it up without input from Adair, but they're close in age and wait until they're older to marry.

Added DiffLines:

* Virginia and Jacob in ''VisualNovel/MagicalDiary'' made one as children, complete with a marriage contract written in crayon. If the player pursues Virginia, then her brother Donald will dig up the contract on Valentine's Day and send it to her as a joke. [[spoiler: The problem is that in this universe, the sworn promise of a witch or wizard is magically binding, and someone who breaks a promise will permanently lose their magical powers. So because of this promise, Virginia and Jacob actually ''have'' to get married once they turn eighteen. Virginia is ''not'' happy about this, but if the player makes the right choices, they can offer to marry Virginia instead.]]

A common staple of stories featuring ChildhoodFriends is the Childhood Marriage Promise. Years ago, when two of the main characters were small children, they promised to marry each other when they grew up. Now they're in HighSchool or university, and SheIsAllGrownUp. Sometimes, the couple fall in love for real and [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend they finally fulfill that promise.]] Other times, one of them is the UnluckyChildhoodFriend whose heart gets broken.

* In ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', it seems that a very young [[spoiler: Heiji Hattori]] made one of these. Thing is, [[spoiler: it looks like he made it with ''[[TheOjou Momiji]]'', NOT with [[PatientChildhoodLoveInterest Kazuha]].]]
* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Chichi and Goku first meet as children, and Goku promises to marry her, [[IsItSomethingYouEat thinking marriage is a kind of food.]] He says so when an [[TsunDere angry]] and [[SheIsAllGrownUp all grown-up Chi-Chi]] brings it up in the Tenkaichi Budokai; Chichi is saddened upon realising that she had been sort-of waiting in vain... but Goku then adds that he doesn't want her to be sad ''and'' that [[IGaveMyWord he takes his promises seriously]], [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming so he officially asks her to marry him right there]].
