* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', Luke and [[KissingCousins his cousin Natalia]] made a mutual ChildhoodMarriagePromise at a young age. Shortly after, he was kidnapped and lost all his memories, forgetting all about it... [[spoiler: In reality, the "Luke" that returned was '''not''' the true one but a clone, who is the Luke that the audience meets. The ''real'' Luke, now named Asch the Bloody, still cares for Natalia... [[SwitchedAtBirth who isn't his blood cousin]], technically speaking. And then Natalia starts to differentiate between the two and implies she might have feelings for both. Which one she picks at the end, not the least due to the HeroicSacrifice of both Asch and Luke and the GainaxEnding obscuring who came back to life in the post credits scene, is unknown.]]

It doesn't help that Natalia has Luke recite the promise before the DiscOneFinalDungeon, and his [[YoungerThanTheyLook actual age]] could have that count.]]

* Rand al'Thor and Egwene al'Vere of the Literature/WheelOfTime were all-but promised to each other. They each muse on it in their internal monologues as one of the more amusingly nostalgic parts of the world they'd left behind once they'd assumed the mantles of [[spoiler: [[DarkMessiah Dragon]] [[PersonOfMassDestruction Reborn]]]] and [[spoiler: Amyrlin Seat]], respectively.

* In ''VideoGame/RuneFactory2'', the second game in a spin off series of ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'', in the second half of the game in which you play as your child, you propose and "marry" your boyfriend/girlfriend (''s'' in the case of Serena and her twin, Sera). Though, it's just a promise that you will marry them in the future. Except in Serena and Sera's case when you play as your ''daughter''. You are stopped due to the priest saying how "girls can't get married to each other"(and how the twins just think marriage is one big tea party in the English version).
