** In ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasonsTrioOfTowns'', the DLC candidates Stephanie and Woofio are unusual in they completely skip dating and are married during their final (and coincidentally fourth) love event. While the player can choose to stay friends with them in the last event instead of marrying them, [[PermenantlyMissableContent this will lock them out of being]][[LostForever married again for the file]]. [[UpToEleven This can be taken even further]] taking advantage of their special items and other friendship boosts, allowing a player to marry them in less than a ''full in-game season''.

* By the end of the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures novel ''Death and Diplomacy'', Franchise/BerniceSummerfield and Jason Kane have known each other for maybe a week, including the day or so when she thought he was a creepy alien as well as the later period when she [[BelligerentSexualTension just thought he was a creep]]. The book ends with them announcing their engagement and the wedding is in the next one.

** In the serial "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E5TheGreenDeath The Green Death]]", Jo Grant is PutOnABus by getting engaged to Professor Clifford Jones, a man she met for the first time earlier that story, [[BelligerentSexualTension when he yelled at her]] [[DoppelgangerDating for ruining an experiment]]. (Other companions also left for a man they'd just met, but Jo is the only one where they actually announce their engagement. At least until Franchise/BerniceSummerfield in the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures.)

* * ''{{Comicbook/Deadpool}}'' and Shiklah. They met, and WordOfGod states literally got married after their first date. Even though they had genuine feelings for one another, the marriage was more a MarriageOfConvenience to stop Dracula from marrying her. They seemed to have a "play house" mentality toward it, underestimating what it would really mean to be married in general, let alone to each other.

* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'': Eric only barely sees Ariel (and hears her as well) for a couple of seconds, with the sun shining behind her. That's enough for him to decide that he'll marry her. [[http://aitnetroma.deviantart.com/art/Prince-Motivational-6-161853402 No matter if he doesn't know she's not human, her name, or if she wasn't a hallucination.]] Slightly subverted by how his adviser talks him out of his fantasy about Ariel and into marrying... well, ''Ariel,'' who he has known for three days. Still counts though.

* As far as we know, both of the main couples in ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians''. But, hey, maybe they had some offscreen dates.
* ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'': Technically they had only one really long date. And a lot of fights. But things work out in the end! (Then again, they're dogs, so we need to measure the length of their relationship in dog years.)

* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' averts this trope since the movie spans start from around fall to spring, making Belle and the Beast spending time to understand each other bad and good points for three or more months making this much more reasonable time for courtship.

* Lampshaded in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. Princess Anna meets Prince Hans and they get engaged in what little time it takes to sing a duet. The other main characters think it's a ''terrible'' idea and part of the plot involves Anna learning how naive she has been to agree to such a thing. One year later in ''Disney/FrozenFever'' there's no sign of Anna and her boyfriend Kristoff even being engaged, meaning that Anna has since learned to take dating slowly.

** Of course, he ''is'' (well, ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_presidential_election,_2012 was]]'') the president of France and she ''is'' Carla Bruni.



* The German RealityTV show ''Hochzeit Auf Den Ersten Blick'' (Wedding At First Sight) marries off two people who were chosen based on scientific analysis on what their morals, ethics, preferences and similar are. They see each other the first time ''at that wedding'' and the show drops in months later to see if the relationship stuck or if they are already heading for the divorce court.
* Not uncommon for those who find love in their senior years of life to marry their sweethearts within a short time of meeting them

* This is a common occurrence at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Utah, as well as its branch campuses in Hawaii and Idaho.
** And at other Mormon-populated colleges, too. Seems to be a Mormon thing—relationships among college-age Mormons usually seem to start within a week of the two meeting each other for the first time, and within the next month or two they've either broken up or gotten engaged (and Mormons tend to have their weddings pretty quick after being engaged, too).

* ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' - It's established in the early seasons of the show that Samantha and Darrin's romance was pretty rapid. Short enough for neither set of parents, nor Darrin's social circle, to know till after the wedding.
