* In ''The Jewel Of Medina'', the ArrangedMarriage between the prophet Muhammed (who was in his 50s) and the 9-year-old girl Aisha is portrayed as the coolest thing ever. The story practically casts her as a young superheroine on team righteous, under the benevolent leadership of her husband. The book subscribes to the theory that they waited a few more years before starting having sex, reducing the {{squick}} although not removing it completely. [[note]]Which is historically completely wrong, because at the time marriage ''law'' dictated a couple to consummate their marriage on the first night.[[/note]]

* This is a DiscussedTrope in ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'', in which Humbert Humbert tries to justify his attraction and sexual relationship with his step-daughter Dolores (also known as Lolita) claiming that in the past it was normal seeing old men marrying young girls (without realizing this is an Appeal to Tradition fallacy).

Once upon a time this was common practice among for example the European nobility (although [[TheJailBaitWait usually it was a marriage in name only until the girl came of age]]). Today the practice is only legal in countries such as Yemen and Saudi Arabia, in which an old man can legally purchase a nine-year-old girl to be one of his wives, as long as he can agree with her father on a suitable dowry.
