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.

* Subverted in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'', where TomboyPrincess Aravis Tarkheena is betrothed to an older man... but she escapes in time, and eventually marries someone her age whom she comes to truly love. Aravis's case wasn't helped by the facts that a) her prospective older husband Ahoshta is the local SmugSnake as well as a {{Gonk}}; and b) the marriage was arranged upon the suggestion of Aravis's much hated WickedStepmother.
