* In ''[[{{Deryni}} The King's Deryni]]'', Princess Xenia Haldane is caught having sex with a Torenthi diplomat during Twelfth Night celebrations in Rhemuth. After Xenia is questioned and physically examined, it is decided the pair must wed. Her uncle Duke Richard tells young Alaric Morgan that her mother the queen insisted Xenia must either marry the man or take the veil (become a nun), and that Xenia chose to marry. Due to her rank, there's a large dose of DefiledForever in this outcome; Richard says, "For royal women, there are rarely other choices."

* This and ArrangedMarriage, occurs in ''Fanfic/KiryuuinChronicles'' with [[spoiler: Ragyou's marriage to her abusive husband, while she pregnant (by someone else) with Satsuki]], which would make this a "cover up the shame" marriage.

* The trope is more universal than you'd think. One notable episode of ''MaisonIkkoku'' finds Godai (in a daydream sequence) facing the father of his sometime girlfriend Kozue over his shotgun. Granted it ''was'' a dream sequence, and he was just thinking of ''kissing'' her, and her daddy was a pretty clean cut (if [[OverprotectiveDad overly protective]]) {{salaryman}}. Everything else matched.

* ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' has a very dark version of this, subverted in that the couple ''was'' a happy one- it was her evil, religiously-psychotic family that forced them to get married, and kept them under lock and key.

* In an example of CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds, the end of ''MaisonIkkoku'' has Mitaka discover that "she" is pregnant. After a previous drunken night with Asuna he assumes that he got her pregnant, and vows to marry her to set things right. After he proposes and everything is set in stone, she decides on a dog's name for the new... puppy. Her dog had actually been the one knocked up by his dog.

** Stuff like this happens a lot in the Jeeves and Wooster stories. In one, Bertie plans to get out of yet another accidental engagement by pretending to be already engaged and hiring a woman to pose as his fiancee. After the first problem is taken care of the fake fiancee turns around and threatens to sue him for Breach of Promise if he doesn't marry her because that's what he just said he would do in front of witnesses. Of course it just turns out to be a scam, as she and her sleazy uncle would be "willing" to settle out of court for a few thousand pounds, just to save him the embarrassment of a trial.

It's noted in both manga and {{anime}} that the Time/Space Administration Bureau actually encourages in-office romances leading to marriage; it results in the next generation of mages loyal to the [=TSAB=].
