* A flashback in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' involves [[MissingMom Hikari Kirishima]] informing her little brother that she's pregnant. He immediately asks whether she's going to marry her boyfriend or not. They do end up getting married at some point, though other material shows that Arata had tried (and failed) to propose marriage via an outdated human custom.

Added DiffLines:

* Mentioned in ''Literature/EarthTheBook''. At first, the book goes into the details of how a human male proposes to a human female (usually on a big screen during a major sporting event), then it mentions that, in a rare case of a woman proposing to a man, she pees on a stick and shows it to him.

* ''Film/TheGoodShepherd'': Edward (Creator/MattDamon) gets Clover (AngelinaJolie) pregnant the first time they have sex which is also the night of the day they meet. Her brother tells him "I know you will do as expected". He does, despite being in love with another woman. He then leaves a week after the wedding for six years to fight in WorldWarII and after returning, becomes a workaholic in the newly established CIA, rarely seeing her. The marriage ends in divorce.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''. The men in Lucky's family line make a vow to themselves that they won't marry unless they get a college degree. However, Peggy, who sees Lucky as a bad influence, purposefully teaches him the wrong answers to the exam to ensure his failure. Her plan succeeds, only for her to have a change of heart. Despite knowing that he was tricked, Lucky still believes himself unworthy to marry Luanne. This [[FridgeLogic prompts Hank to wonder]] how Lucky could even be born if none of his ancestors ever actually got a degree. Lucky responds that they were all shotgun weddings, which they then use an excuse to have Lucky propose to Luanne (though Hank insists that the gun remain unloaded, with the safety on).

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''[=/=]''Manga/FairyTail'' CrossOver ''FanFic/TitaniaFalls'', Erza Scarlet only married Alec Pines because he got her pregnant with Dipper and Mabel. They divorced twelve years later after his jealousy of Erza and the twins' ability to use magic became too much. That being said, it was unlikely the marriage would've lasted much longer anyway -- Erza and Alec never really loved each other, only staying together for their children's sakes, and would've likely divorced from sheer incompatibility once Dipper and Mabel were fully grown. Once [[spoiler:Jellal]] came into the picture, it would've only been a matter of time.

* A literal version in ''Series/{{Sisters}}'', though the person with the gun is trying to ''prevent'' the ceremony rather than force it. Second-oldest sister Teddy isn't handling her ex-husband's plans to marry youngest sister Frankie well at ''all''. To that end, she falls OffTheWagon and shows up at the ceremony drunk and toting the aforementioned weapon, declaring this a "shotgun wedding".
