** King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden was notorious in his belief that royalty should only marry other royalty, which led many of his sons to marry without his approval and lose their titles and succession rights in the process. Gustaf VI Adolf's son, Prince Bertil, and his grandson, Carl XVI Gustaf, had to wait until after his death and Carl XVI Gustaf's accession to the throne before they could marry their commoner brides. Carl XVI Gustaf and his bride, Silvia Sommerlath, had to wait for four years. Bertil and his love, Lillian Craig, had watied for forty-three.

* Then there is of course the royal families. For example, a recently engaged princess had to have her relationship of seven years approved by the local government as well as her family, and there have been rumors that the king has been stalling the engagement for quite some time.

* Then there is of course the royal families. For example, families:
** King George III vetoed quite
a recently engaged princess had few of his sons' potential marriages, mostly because they wanted to have her relationship marry either commoners or Catholics, which led to a succession crisis after the death of seven years approved Princess Charlotte (the daughter and heir of George IV) in childbirth. George IV was succeeded by his younger brother, William IV, who was then succeeded by his niece Victoria, the daughter of his brother Prince Edward.
** King George VI initially vetoed then-Princess Elizabeth's marriage to Philip Mountbatten, mostly because she was underage and he was still largely seen
by the local government public as well as a Greek and Danish prince, even though he had given up those titles. After World War II, when Philip was a British war hero and Elizabeth had turned 21, her family, father finally consented to the marriage.
** Elizabeth herself vetoed Prince Charles's potential marriage to Camilla Shand because of her somewhat scandalous dating history
and there have been rumors the belief that Charles needed to marry a young English virgin. Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles, Charles married Lady Diana Spencer, and the king has been stalling the rest, as they say, is history.
** King Olav V of Norway initially vetoed Crown Prince Harald's
engagement to Sonja Haraldsen because she was a Norwegian commoner. Harald responded to this by informing his father that if he couldn't marry Sonja he wouldn't marry at all. Since Harald was the sole heir to the throne, and his not marrying would have meant the end of the Norwegian monarchy, Olav relented.

* ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride'': Implied by the lyrics of ''Remains of the Day'', which says Emily fell hard and fast for a man, "but her daddy said no". [[spoiler: Said man turns out to be the villain of the film, meaning Emily's father was absolutely right to reject him, even if it led to tragic results.]]

* Ancient Catholic traditions had a way to get around this and other vetoes: the priest being considered a mere witness, a couple could get around the veto by going to a priest with two other witnesses and declaring themselves husband and wife. Due the practice being much abused, the practice was eventually banned in the Council of Trento with the ''Tametsi'' decree... That also specifically banned the parental marriage veto.

* This trope appears in ''Literature/WayOfChoices'' where Xu Yourong's grandfather engages her as a child to the disciple of the Taoist who saved his life, her immediate parents are horrified and do everything in their power to dissuade her fiance, Chen Changsheng, so she can pursue a proper marriage with a young man of their choosing. Ironically, Chen who has since learned he is fated to die as a young man, first came to them in order to break off the marriage contract but their snobbery, insults, bribes and threats convince him otherwise. The parents then become his enemies and do everything in their power to sabotage him. Meanwhile, [[DoorStopper 500 chapters in]] Chen and Youroung have met only a few times and he is unaware (though she is) of her identity, as they largely communicate through writing.

Even though most people in the western world choose their own spouses, this ''isn't'' a DeadHorseTrope. It can still appear in historical fiction, fantasy, in stories not set in the western world, or in any story where parents believe that they have a right to meddle in their grown children's lives. Contrast ChildMarriageVeto.
