* Invoked in Creator/TeresaEdgerton's ''[[Literature/{{Celydonn}} The Castle of the Silver Wheel]]'', in which [[TheWisePrince Prince Tryffin]] pulls a SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace in the nick of time to prevent Gwenlliant from being forced into an ArrangedMarriage with a notoriously abusive man. When asked if they have a ChildhoodMarriagePromise (which would constitute a pre-contract, thus acting as an impediment), Gwenlliant claims that they do - because Tryffin CannotTellALie, so she has to do it.

* [[CalvinAndHobbes Calvin]] offers twice to Susie to [[InvertedTrope not]] date her. The first time, he's [[InsultBackfire insulted]] that she signs so quick, the second she pummels him for suggesting it will take her eleven years to find a prom date.

** At the time, neither one really understood the implications of that vow. Between the Titans of Myth and Dark Angel, the two parted.

* Happens ''a lot'' in ''Series/DoctorWho'' fanfic, between Kid!Doctor and [[UsedToBeASweetKid Kid!Master.]]

* Played with in ''Anime/{{Futakoi}}'': Ichijou twin sisters ''(together)'' expressed their intent to marry Nozomu when they all will grow up. When they ''did'' grew up and met again, there were definite affections from all three sides, all right. [[spoiler: Each (separately) reminded him about this proposal and tried to downplay her own role (claiming it was half- friendly competition, half- cooperation with other sister)... [[NoExceptYes only to set her sibling forward, while both still paid more attention to their "non-fiance" than to everyone else]].]] It's ''Futakoi'', though, so a MindScrew was really to be expected.

* Joan of Kent, a cousin of King Edward III, claimed a childhood marriage promise to one Thomas Holland as grounds for the annulment of her marriage to the Earl of Salisbury. Since Joan was a wealthy heiress her husband did ''not'' take this well but under Church law of the time Joan and Thomas had rendered any subsequent marriages to other partners illicit with their childhood vow.

* In the ''Literature/HaloEvolutions'' story ''Palace Hotel'', it is revealed that John-117 (''Franchise/{{Halo}}''[='s=] Master Chief) had a childhood friend named Parisa. The two became friends after John saved her from drowning in a lake, and later John promised to marry her and keep her safe. He was never able to keep it, however, as he was abducted two weeks later for the SPARTAN-II Program and replaced with a flash clone which died not long after. Due to this, Parisa believed that John had died, though she kept with her a picture of herself and John taken by their parents. Years later, John would meet her again during the Battle of New Mombasa. At the time, Parisa was holding the picture of herself and John as children [[http://images.wikia.com/halo/images/4/44/Evo_PHotel_Chua.jpg as seen here]]. Just as John was intending to remind Parisa to not bring personal items to a combat zone, he recognized the picture. Parisa, obviously not recognizing John because of his armor, explained the story behind the picture to him and said that although it was silly and John was "dead", she intended to hold him to that promise. Despite the sudden flood of memories, John couldn't bring himself to reveal who he was, knowing that doing so would be a massive security breach. Instead he maintained his stoic facade and the two of them began planning a counterattack against the Covenant.
