* On ''Series/RaisingHope'' Burt purposely got his high-school girlfriend Virginia pregnant, [[TheBabyTrap so that she would stay with him]]. They got married down at the courthouse, and though they are HappilyMarried, Virginia sometimes wishes she could have had the fairytale wedding (complete with Princess Diana's iconic dress) that she dreamed about since she was a little girl. To make her happy, Burt "steals" her {{Jerkass}} cousin Delilah's wedding for her (they repeat their vows quietly during the ceremony, and do the cake cutting from the back of Delilah's cake), and in the SeriesFinale, Virginia ''finally'' gets her dream wedding, courtesy of her father.
** In an earlier episode, [[{{Yandere}} Lucy]] forces Jimmy into one of these, while she is in {{Prison}}.

* On ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Earl recalls how he (then about 12-14 years old) had a crush on his babysitter, but she had a boyfriend closer to her own age. Earl was jealous, and while the two of them had sex, he went through the boyfriend's pants pocket and found his wallet. Earl was just going to take money out, but found a condom and poked holes in it instead. As per the LawOfInverseFertility, the babysitter became [[TeenPregnancy pregnant]]. She married her boyfriend and gave birth right at the wedding reception. They are still together some 20 years later, and Earl decides that the way to make up for what he did is to help their ManChild son grow up and get his act together.
