** So far, Trystane Martell and Myrcella Baratheon. Both are too young for their relationship to be romantic yet, but are said to be very close.

* ''Series/Rome'': Jocasta's family are killed in a mass proscription set up by Antony and Octavian, leaving her with nothing. She is subsequently married off to Posca, a former slave of Julius Caesar. Posca's relationship with Caesar has left him wealthy and influential, but his ex-slave status (which causes him to still be looked down on in Roman society) and the fact that he is far older than her means Jocasta is scared and in tears at the thought of marrying him. Posca, however, proves to be a doting husband and Jocasta becomes very visibly fond of him.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' plays with the trope. An ArrangedMarriage is set up between [[spoiler:Sanji, roped against his will,]] and [[spoiler:Big Mom's 35th daughter Pudding]]. The two are perfect for each other, with LoveAtFirstSight on both parts, similar tastes, and the groom's charms and gentlemanly behavior. However, there's one major problem: [[spoiler:Sanji is a member of the Straw Hats, and doesn't want to leave his crew behind]]. Since simply backing off the marriage isn't an option because of the parties that organized it, the bride decides to sacrifice her happiness with her groom-to-be to help him escape.

* In [[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Curse of Chalion]], Royesse (Princess) Iselle arranges her own marriage--for rather urgent political reasons--to the crown prince of a neighboring kingdom whom she's never seen, pausing briefly to collect the rumor that he is "well-favored" (which she cynically says people will say about any prince who isn't a perfect fright), before returning to more important practical considerations. When she finally meets him, they've practically already bonded over their shared love and admiration for the main character, Iselle's heroic secretary, and by the morning after the wedding, he observes that they look like a couple madly in love.

Compare MarriageBeforeRomance for when a couple has gone through with a marriage [[ArrangedMarriage for]] [[AccidentalMarriage other]] [[MarriageOfConvenience reasons]] [[CitizenshipMarriage than]] [[MailOrderBride love]] and only then starts to develop feelings for one another. Expect a lot of arguing and bickering to contrast with the more idealised love story of the unwed protagonists, ending in a big AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther moment, to the surprise of everyone, most of all themselves.

* Discussed and downplayed in "Do You Love Me?" from ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof''. Tevye is used to his community having arranged marriages, so it surprises him that two of his daughters have defied conventions and chosen their own husbands. Pondering about this, he asks his own wife, who he met on the wedding day and frequently argues with, if she loves him. Golde is pretty surprised to hear him ask this, but eventually decides her sticking by his side all these years must mean she does.
