* This is part of Kyrie's back story in ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. She ran away from the ArrangedMarriage to marry the protagonist Battler's father, Rudolf. It should be noted that she'd been in a relationship with Rudolf for awhile, even when he was married to Battler's mother, Asumu ([[spoiler:Or not]]). Unfortunately, [[spoiler:this resulted in her younger sister Kasumi being forced to marry the fiance. Having already promised herself to someone else, she's pretty miffed about that. And considering how Kyrie dies on Rokkenjima, the grudge is transferred to Kyrie's daughter, Ange.]]

* Part of Kanna's (Gran-Gran's) BackStory on ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. She ran away (literally to the other side of the Planet, from the North pole to the South) not because she hated her intended husband, but because she didn't want to marry him just because "tradition" said she had to. She actually held onto the necklace he made her and passed it down as a family heirloom to her granddaughter. Her former fiance recognizes it ''decades'' later and it turns out he was deeply in love with her. He never knew where she went and so had always considered her TheLostLenore. [[DecemberDecemberRomance When he finds out she's alive and well on the other side of the planet, he goes to find her, ASKS her to marry him, and she agrees!]]

* Some say [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Ariadne]] was already betrothed to Dionysus, when she ran away with Theseus. Dionysus either ordered Artemis to slain her while she was giving birth or forced Theseus to leave her on Naxos, where he took her as his wife anyway.

* Deconstructed together with ArrangedMarriage in Steven Erikson's ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' prequel ''Literature/ForgeOfDarkness''. Upon receiving the news that she is to marry a considerably older war hero in order to enable him to rise to nobility as thanks for his deeds in the past war, Faror Hend, daughter of a decimated noble house, bolts to a military posting as far away from the capital as possible, where she proceeds to oggle over her younger cousin. When she hears that her betrothed is [[OhCRap on his way to her]], she jumps to conclusions and bolts ''again'', never stopping to consider why he'd bother to travel that far. Turns out [[ShellShockedVeteran Kagamandra Tulas]] is about as happy to ruin a young woman's life over political matters as she is to be saddled with an unwanted marriage, but since neither can get out of the arrangement gracefully, he was just trying to tell her that he does not care what she does as long as she's happy and safe. [[TheSnarkKnight Sharenas Ankhadu]] points out that neither behaviour is going to help matters.

* In the very beginning (first episode/volume) of ''RanmaOneHalf'', it initially looks like Ranma Saotome might become this to Akane Tendo, given that he's expressed no interest in her and openly stated that he considers finding a cure far more important than getting a girlfriend. Of course, his (currently her) plans to leave are curtailed when Akane knocks him/her out cold with a table for insulting Akane's (lack of) figure compared to his/her cursed form. When Ranma comes around, he first gets enrolled in school, then caught up in the chaos, so he forgets all about it.
