* Narrowly {{averted}} in one ''Franchise/{{Archie|Comics}}'' comic (seen [[http://www.misterkitty.org/extras/stupidcovers/stupidcomics196.html here]]): Betty's father finds out that she and Archie are at a motel together, and walks in on them when Betty is wearing nothing but a blanket. It was actually an example of HangingOurClothesToDry, but Betty's father was more than willing to drag them off to a wedding chapel before it gets straightened out.

* Another variation occurs in the WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fic [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/382335/no-nose-knows No Nose Knows]]. Baked Bean accidentally bumps noses with Princess Celestia, triggering a curse she placed on herself millennia ago for political reasons and forgot to undo afterwards:
--> '''Luna:''' “…we are gathered here on this fantastically fabulous Friday to join this earth stallion and this Alicorn princess together in the bonds of matrimony because my forgetful sister didn’t listen to me, the younger, more beautiful, and more beloved Princess of the Night and she forgot to repeal her own silly law.”
...
--> “All right, here we go. Baked Bean, do you take this mare to be your lawfully wedded wife, even though you really don’t have a say in the matter?”
--> “I guess I do.”
--> “Smart move. Celestia, Princess of the Sun, do you take this stallion to be your lawfully wedded husband since you got all nosey with him?”
--> “Loving every moment of this, aren't you?” Celestia darkly replied, and Luna nodded vigorously and with a huge smile. “Yes. I do.”

*** This is a fairly common event in the Palin family. {{Sarah|Palin}} was already pregnant with Track when she married Todd. Sarah's parents were pregnant with her oldest brother when they married. And Track's now wife was already pregnant when they married.

* In the British sitcom ''OnTheBuses'', a flashback episode shows how Olive and Arthur met and got married. Arthur was a lodger at the house and one night after using the toilet, he took a wrong turn and accidentally climbed into bed with Olive. Her mother and brother caught him when Olive screamed and, thinking Arthur was trying something, demanded he marry her. It explains a lot, since [[NoAccountingForTaste Arthur can't stand his wife]].
