* In ''Film/EquinoxFlower'' Hirayama tries hard to exercise this, not even for any specific reason, but just because he wasn't asked ahead of time. He eventually finds out that the veto is no longer in effect in Japan.

* In ''Film/CrimsonPeak'', Edith's father puts a halt to Thomas's plans to propose to her, on the grounds that he suspects Thomas of [[GoldDigger only wanting her for her money]]. He pays off Thomas to not only call off the proposal, but disavow Edith of any notion that he loves her. [[spoiler:Lucille gets around the issue by killing Edith's father.]] As it turns out, [[spoiler:not only was her father right about Thomas and Lucille's motives, but he had another reason to oppose the marriage - he'd learned that Thomas was already legally married to at least three other women.]]

* Subverted in ''ComicBook/{{Persepolis}}''. While Marjane's mother doesn't approve of her engagement, her father overrules any vetos on the conditions that her husband-to-be lives outside of Iran with her and agrees to let her divorce, should it come to that. He agrees, and the two are married. Eventually the two become unhappy and get divorced, at which point Marjane's father reveals that he suspected as much, but also knew that flat-out forbidding the marriage would only make the couple more determined to defy him. To keep things as smooth as possible, he just made sure Marjane had an easy out when things inevitably went badly. (Her mother, upon hearing this, is annoyed he didn't just let her in on the plan so she wouldn't have worried so much.)

[[folder:Comic Strips]] * This was one of the early plots in ''ComicStrip/{{Blondie}}''. Before they were married, Dagwood's wealthy parents disapproved of Blondie feeling she was a GoldDigger (and initially, she was), and tried to get him to marry a woman of their social class. They finally gave in and allowed Dagwood to marry Blondie after he went on a 30-day hunger strike, but warned him that if he married her, they would [[PassedOverInheritance disown him.]] They went ahead with the wedding, and the rest is comic strip history.

* Parodied in the remake of ''FanFic/BattleFantasiaProject'', where [[Anime/{{Beyblade}} Mariam]]'s father initially opposes her relationship with Kai because he's terrified by the possible results of the love between his daughter (whose personality is often compared unfavourably to a ''[[EverythingsWorseWithSharks shark]]'') and Kai (who has more than one similarity with her). [[JerkassHasAPoint He kinda had a point]]...

* In the second ''Literature/ApprenticeAdept'' trilogy: Stile and Lady Blue object to Bane (or rather [[FreakyFridayFlip his Photon doppelgänger, Mach in Bane's body]]) marrying Fleta the unicorn. Not for any species hangups but because Fleta wouldn't be able to provide an heir to the title of Blue Adept. Since this was a case of [[ShootTheDog Reason Before Honor]] in a PiersAnthony work, this bites the good guys hard in the ass later. Conversely, Stile and Lady Blue's Proton counterparts, Blue and Sheen, had no problem with Bane-in-Mach's-body being an item with the alien Agape. Since Mach was a RidiculouslyHumanRobot, producing heirs were never an issue.
