* ''[[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.

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''[='=]s Fred Armisen and ''MadMen'''s Creator/ElisabethMoss: SNL does a ''Series/MadMen'' sketch.

They start dating and three months later announce their engagement; they married in October 2009 and divorced the next year.

* Fourth date near-marriages are fairly common in ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' with each of the women having at least one man propose to them within a week of meeting them. They almost always consider it a strong possibility, and get angry with their friends for not being happy for them. The only time it's completely PlayedStraight is in the season finale, when Dorothy actually goes through with it.
* This is eventually how Dorothy and Lucas ended up on ''Series/TheGoldenGirls''. They were actually faking an engagement largely to get revenge on Blanche for lying to them and setting them up on a blind date just so she could get out of Lucas (her uncle) visiting her and so she herself could go on a date. In the two months they kept the ruse going, they ended up falling in love for real and married in the series finale.

* A literal example occurs in ''Series/GreysAnatomy'': a heart patient is brought in at Thanksgiving and told she has to hold on until New Year's, when she has a good chance of receiving a donor heart. Her very new boyfriend remains by her bedside for weeks, and proposes when they hear a heart has been found. She points out that they have had only four dates, then says yes.
