* In ''VideoGame/RuneFactory2'', the second game in a spin off series of 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).

* 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.

* 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.
