* In the ''Series/{{Highlander}}'' episode, "Til Death". It involved two Immortals who had been married for nearly 300 years, Robert and Gina de Valincourt.

* [[Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman Dr. Quinn]] asks her mother to give her away, as her father has passed away. Her mother, being a stickler for tradition, refuses (presumably, this was unheard of in the 1800s, when the series is set). Fiance Sully asks his former father-in-law Loren to do it as means of making amends for he and Loren's daughter running off and eloping years ago, depriving him of the chance to do this. Loren agrees, but her mother comes around and does it after all.
