* In one of the later seasons of ''StepByStep'', Lily informs her father Frank that she's gay because she loves her mother Carol. He gives her a somewhat simplistic explanation of the difference between familial and romantic love and asks her if she wants to marry her mother. She tells him that she doesn't. Because she would rather marry him.

* Among the numerous incest jokes in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' there's a flashback to a magazine cover featuring Buster and his mother Lucile at a dancing competition (I think) with the headline "Why I want to marry my mother".

*** That may have less to do with her being older and more of him avoiding getting together with his adopted sister.
*** And even more to do with him avoiding getting together with ''Lindsay specifically''.

* In ''Film/{{The Secret Garden|1993}}'', Colin insists that he will wed his cousin Mary when they grow up. He even tries to force her to promise him this. When she laughs and says they can't, he reveals that he thinks it is the only way to keep her from abandoning him someday. Of course marrying a first cousin was (and still is) completely acceptable socially in Britain.

Added DiffLines:

* Miyuki of LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool speaks directly about this desire in her internal monologues, because she is afraid of losing her brother if she is being married to someone else. Whether this includes not only romantic but also sexual feelings remains controversial. [[spoiler: In the future, they are actually engaged, which became possible due to a number of the gimmicks of their aunt and previously unknown circumstances.]]

* In ''Manga/PrincessPrincess'', Yuujirou's family comes to visit while the princesses have to perform. Because his toddler half-brother barely knows Yuujirou and is surprised to see him in girls' clothing, he's initially terrified by him, but accepts Yuujirou at the end by calling him 'Sister'. He then announces his intention to marry 'Sister', which everyone finds awkwardly funny and cute.

* The OAV adaptation of the bishoujo game ''Ko-ko-ro...'' plays host to a fairly {{Squick}}-filled and near-literal example of this trope; Asuka Kuonji, [[BrotherSisterIncest deeply in love with her brother, Souji, and who regularly initiates sex with him]], becomes upset when Souji begins a relationship with his teacher, Mizuki. Fearing losing Souji both physically and emotionally, Asuka nudges him into revisiting the traumatic event that numbed him to the world around him and precipitated the start of their incestuous relationship, so that she can take him back from Mizuki. The plot works, and after Souji has fallen catatonic, Asuka fantasizes about [[spoiler:raping his unresponsive body on top of a church altar, crowing and giggling that she and he are together forever]].
** This may be an allusion to a scene from the game in which Asuka fantasizes about [[spoiler:''actually marrying Souji in a church ceremony'', complete with her in wedding dress and him in a white tuxedo; the marriage is shown to be consummated before they take a single step from the altar as man and wife]].

* In Creator/MaryRenault's first UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat book, ''Literature/FireFromHeaven'', the four-year-old Alexander proposes to his mother. She treats it as just something very young kids say. What follows when dad Philip comes in, drunk and brutal, is [[FreudWasRight an Oedipal scene]] that is so painful for Alexander he represses the memory until he's much older.

Children have a bit of a strange understanding in regards to sexual relationships between adults. If you don't know about the intricacies of all that kind of stuff, it just seems like the husband-wife relationship is between two people[[note]]Well, due to heteronormative standards mostly a man and a woman - and that's the [[UpToEleven all defining and only relevant thing]] [[/note]] who love each other a lot. Never mind what ''kind'' of love it is. Obviously, since we're talking about little kids here, the effect is usually sweet and endearing rather than creepy.
