** Italy used to have a similar practice, called ''fuitina'' (literally "little escape" in a number of local dialects), in which a couple would get around the parents' will by faking a kidnapping with rape and then celebrating a wedding, as the girl is now DefiledForever. This ended in the 20th century, with the relevant law being abolished in 1981 as the final consequence of a girl being ''actually'' kidnapped and raped and refusing to marry her rapist as she was expected to.

* In the flashbacks of ''Series/{{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.

** Haru from ''VideoGame/Persona5'' goes through the same plot with the difference that it's her father arranging the marriage purely to benefit his company. In fact, her primary reason for [[spoiler: becoming a Phantom Thief and invading her father's palace]] is to get out of the arrangement. [[spoiler: In the bad ending for failing to complete her father's Palace in time it's shown that her fiancé is heavily abusive, giving more weight to her reluctance.]]

* 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.)

* ''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.)
* 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.
