* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', due to male GenderRarityValue, all the sisters of a family marry one man, so a man cannot settle for sibling, he gets all of them or none. However, a family who offers for Jerin seems inexplicably (it is suggested) unwilling to consider one of his (not yet of age) brothers, or any of his (close to him in age) cousins, despite it being an arragend marriage, anyway. (Though they do appreciate Jerin's good looks) A minor character, who would like to get his sisters married to a brother of his wives, for a DoubleInLawMarriage that would allow him frequent contact with his sisters, is willing to settle for a cousin of his wives to be married to his sisters.

* In the Creator/AgathaChristie novel ''Sparkling Cyanide'', Anthony Brown enjoys an initial flirtation with the married Rosemary Barton, and eventually ends up courting her younger sister Iris. However, it wasn't so much "settling" for the sibling as it was Anthony recognizing Iris's charm and depth of character; he later refers to his feelings for Rosemary as like [[Literature/RomeoAndJuliet Romeo remembering Rosaline after he'd first seen Juliet]].

* In the 1954 film of ''PrinceValiant'', Sir Gawain hooks up with Princess Aleta's sister Ilene after Aleta ditches him for Val. * Played with in ''The Frisco Kid''; the rabbi protagonist is arranged to be married to the daughter of a local Jewish merchant, without having met her; she's vain, selfish, a total flirt and obviously not a good match for him. Her shyer, more modest and withdrawn sister is a much better match... as the rabbi discovers when he eventually arrives in town, takes one glimpse of the younger sister and falls hopelessly in love with her, without having even met his intended bride. He ends up marrying her instead.
