* In ''RoyalPains'', Divya breaks off her ArrangedMarriage to Raj, though this comes with the consequence of being disowned by her family and being forced to repay Raj's family for what they put into wedding plans.
* In TheBorgias, Lucrezia starts doing this in the second season, due in no small part to her [[MaritalRapeLicense very unhappy marriage]] in the first season. Her family are not pleased, but by this point she's gotten strong enough that she can only be ''persuaded'' to do something rather than simply ''ordered''.

* ''AMidsummerNightsDream'' -- Hermia's father is so determined to have her marry Demetrius that he takes the case before the Duke of Athens to have her executed, or at least shut up in a nunnery, if she continues to refuse. Hermia and Lysander instead hatch a plan to run off together into the woods. (It is never explained why Hermia's father is so dead set on Demetrius, since the text makes a point of saying the two men are of equal status.)

She seems to have accepted it, but [[spoiler:the main character can convince her otherwise, as she had actually fallen in love with him.]]

* In ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof'', the main protagonist is Tevye, the struggling patriarch of a poor family. Managing to arrange a marriage between his oldest daughter and the wealthy, older man Lazar Wolf makes him very happy at first. Sure, he doesn't even ''like'' the guy - but Lazar has money and social position that will guarantee that his new wife will never have to starve. When the girl finds out about her upcoming marriage - and this is ''after'' the deal has been made and the men in the village has celebrated it - she takes it very badly. Tevye takes pity on her, sparing her from the marriage. But in this society, letting the wife-to-be have a say in the matter is so shameful that he have to make up a cover story to fool people that it was his own idea to change his mind.

* In [[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/facetiousnights/night4_fable1.html "Costanza / Costanzo"]], Costanza nobly refuses a suitor with merely BlueBlood, even though her lack of a dowry -- her father's realm having been divided into three parts for her sisters' dowry, before she was born -- meant she was unlike to attract a suitor with RoyalBlood.
-->''Next - speaking with [[WithAllDueRespect all submission and reverence]] - I do not purpose to let myself fall be low the race of my ancestors, who from all time have been famous and illustrious, nor do I wish to debase the crown you wear by taking for a husband one who is our inferior. You, my beloved father, have begotten four daughters, of whom you have married three in the most honourable fashion to three mighty kings, giving with them great store of gold and wide domains, but you wish to dispose of me, who have ever been obedient to you and observant of your precepts, in an ignoble alliance. Wherefore I tell you, to end my speech, that I will never take a husband unless I can be mated, like my three sisters, to a king of a rank that is my due.''

* ''RanmaOneHalf'' - Genma Saotome and Soun Tendo had arranged for Ranma and Akane to marry. The kids swear they won't because they hate each other, but most people who've seen the series swear it's more akin to AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther.

* Saint Catherine of Sienna's older sister, Bonaventura, fell victim to DeathByChildbirth. 16-year-old Catherine was supposed to marry her sister's widow, apparently quite the JerkAss; Catherine utterly refused to do so since she had [[CelibateHero already decided to consecrate herself to God]], showing this via first [[ImportantHaircut cutting off her hair]] and later both [[ImNotHungry refusing to eat]] and [[HikikoMori locking herself in her room]] until her parents left her alone.

* In the flashbacks of ''{{LOST}}'', Sun is very reluctant when her father forces her into a arranged marriage with the son of one of the father's business partners. After a little while she opens up and falls in love in with the guy... but then HE vetoes the whole thing. It turns out that he already has a girlfriend, it's just that he hadn't dared to tell his family about it.

* In ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'', King Roland never has to back off from his demand that his daughter shall marry a prince. Sure the horribly boring Prince Valium was the only prince left in the galaxy, but [[spoiler: it turns out that the hero is actually also a prince.]] Problem solved.
* Jasmine's propensity towards this is how {{Disney/Aladdin}} gets his foot in the door.
