** The only reason it didn't is because KeanuReeves didn't want to do the sequel. The original script [[spoiler:''did'' have them already married]].

* ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' doesn't do this in gameplay; it takes a buildup 500 love points for two characters to marry and the chapters explicitly span months or years. Plotwise, however, Deirdre and Sigurd take LoveAtFirsSight to a new level. After she hears about him from Aideen and he saves her from a ruffian, they part ways for a few turns (i.e. a few days at best, depending on your interpretation of ingame time) and wind up saying things like "I tried so hard to forget you!" to each other as though they were lovers separated for months, rather than strangers who ran into each other for ten minutes.

* You can invoke this in certain ''HarvestMoon'' games due to GoodBadBugs. Arguably, a lot of ''HarvestMoon'' games feature this unless you believe all events involving you two romantically are dates.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' when Luanne, who becomes a born-again virgin due to her pre-marital sex, agreed to marry Rhett, who also attended the virgin gathering, after a single dance date. Luanne barely even knows him not knowing his age and surname. They eventually called off the marriage when they were only doing so, so they can have sex without being sinners and following Peggy's objection to not make a mistake.

* Narrowly averted by the ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' fifth season episode "Storm Front." As noted in [[http://comicsalliance.com/the-x-men-episode-guide-5x08-storm-front-part-two this review]], Storm agrees to marry Arkon, the man who essentially abducted her, after knowing him for 20 minutes. She does have her doubts, though, which are confirmed when [[spoiler: Arkon is revealed to be a tyrant who is enslaving people
from a neighboring planet, so they don't end up getting married.]]
