* A very famous instance occurred between [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_I_of_England King Edward I]] and [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleanor_of_Castile Eleanor of Castile]]. Their marriage was brokered by their fathers to settle a potential dispute over the Duchy of Gascony, which was an English possession. Married respectively at the ages of 14 and 13, Edward and Eleanor were insepararable from each other until Eleanor's death at age 49. Edward is also one of the few English kings never known to have taken a mistress, and his love for her was so profound that he continued to visit her tomb every anniversay of her death even with his ''second'' wife. ThatOtherWiki, as always, has further details.

** Robb Stark and Myrcella Baratheon have shades of this, with Robb trying to write bad poetry to the princess and Myrcella daydreaming about Robb crowning her Queen of Love and Beauty. As with the above, unfortunately, there is no guarantee about a wedding at the end of the line.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' has the Capitol pressuring Katniss and Peeta into an engagement (and later on Peeta lies that they have gotten married in secret, with the audience buying it wholesale). In truth they are only together because the government demands it of them. However by the end of the series they are in love with one another and spend the rest of their lives together, eventually starting a family.

* A justified example in ''VideoGame/RuneScape'''s "Throne of Miscellania" quest. To become the regent of Miscellania, you are required to get engaged to [[GiftedlyBad Prince Brand]] (if female) or [[TomboyPrincess Princess Astrid]] (if male). The royal is initially unimpressed, having been presented with suitors for this purpose by their father before, so you have to actively woo them, show interest in their hobbies, bring them presents, and prove to them that your interest is more than just political. Once you succeed, they and your character fall enthusiastically in love, and agree to the engagement.
