* Creator/DorothyLSayers' LordPeterWimsey sometimes used this gambit to flatter older women. In "The Queen's Square", he says to his dance partner that if he'd only had the luck to have been born earlier, he'd have married her. (She is ''much'' older than he is and is not offended.)

* This is shown in a {{flashback}} in ''Manga/FutureDiary'', when 13-year-old classmates [[SchoolIdol Yuno]] and [[{{Adorkable}} Yukiteru]] are both having trouble with a school assignment asking them about their dreams for the future. Yuki had been looking forward to going to the observatory to see the stars with his parents, but now they're getting a divorce, and it seems like that day will never come. To cheer him up, Yuno offers to go with him instead, but Yuki says it's not the same since she isn't family. Yuno then suggests that she become his bride. He brushes it off and jokingly agrees to get married when they're older, believing she was only kidding. [[StalkerWithACrush She wasn't.]] It turns out the reason she was having trouble with the assignment was because [[spoiler: she had accidentally killed her AbusiveParents. She had been all alone and unable to imagine any kind of future for herself, but the thought of marrying Yuki gave her something solid to fixate on, and focusing on that kept her from completely giving in to despair. In the process, Yuki becomes a LivingEmotionalCrutch, and Yuno will do [[ClingyJealousGirl anything]] to make sure they can be together. [[MurderTheHypotenuse ANYTHING.]]]]

* A version of this occurs in Thornton Wilder's classic OurTown, George and Emily begin a conversation with how George has become all stuck-up, and are engaged by the end of it. Unlike most of these, the question is never directly asked or answered, but everyone knows what's happened. George ends it by saying "Well. I guess this is a pretty important conversation we've been having."

* Non-[[GeekyTurnOn geeky]], SuperDickery example: In ''TheTimeTravelersWife'', Henry says a variation on this after tasting the cooking of Clare's family's cook. Which is very weird, considering Clare's his fiancee at that point. Furthermore, he prefaces the statement by dramatically announcing "I have seen my future," which makes Clare worry he's about to tell her family about the time traveling.

* Tom Welling, who plays [[{{Superman}} Clark]] on ''{{Smallville}}'', apparently was asked this in all seriousness by a fan he'd never met before. He was a bit disturbed.
