* On ''Series/{{Imposters}}'', this seems to be Maddie's M.O. as a professional GoldDigger. She would begin dating people and marry them in a short time, then clean out their bank accounts and leave, and then threaten to blackmail them with some heinous family secret if they look for her.

Added DiffLines:

* Happens in season 8 of ''{{Charmed}}'' in a rather rushed effort to get all three leads married off by the series finale. Henry proposes to Paige after knowing eachother for only eight episodes (a couple months in the show's timeline) and they marry in the very next episode. Phoebe also ends up marrying Coop in the finale's flash forward after 7 episodes. While a length of time did pass between the finale and their wedding, the comics confirmed it was only a few months. Compare these two to Leo and Cole who took at least a season (two in Leo's case) to marry their respective Charmed One with a fair amount of episodes inbetween the proposal and the wedding.

* In ''The Wild House'', Serena falls in love with Orlando, whom she met when he spent a couple of weeks at her house on a foreign exchange. She instantly transfers to a school in the US to be with him, they get engaged almost immediately, and married a few months later. Her cousin [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Georgina]] successfully pushes for a guy she's known for a very short tie to propose so that she can steal the spotlight at Serena's wedding.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', in which all marriage requires is having completed a quest for a given NPC and then speaking to them while wearing an amulet that signifies you're available and looking. Some require you complete whole questlines, which presumably would give you time to get to know each other (not much, but some time) while others require only a simple fetch quest, and some require only that you beat your potential spouse in a bare-knuckle brawl. The priest of Mara who explains this to you points out that this is not unusual at all in Skyrim, as, well, its ''[[DeathWorld freaking]] [[GrimUpNorth Skyrim]]'', one of the most dangerous regions in the world, and people don't involve themselves in long courtships when death is literally right down the road.
