* In ''TheSimpsons,'' Homer and the very pregnant Marge are married in a chapel named ''Shotgun Pete's.''
* Subverted in the Canadian cartoon ''Kevin Spencer'' when the title character's parents voluntarily decide to get married after Kevin is conceived, [[MarriageOfConvenience mostly to get additional welfare benefits]]. This doesn't stop them from cheating on each other throughout their marriage.

* In the English version of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', [[CuteMonsterGirl Nah]] believes this is the reason why her father (whoever he is) [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents married her mother]] [[WomanChild Nowi]]. She tries to [[Radar/FireEmblem directly ask him this in their supports]], but never really gets a definitive answer. (In the original, she actually thinks [[{{Lolicon}} her dad's into super young girls]] -- even when Nowi [[OlderThanTheyLook is a millenia-old dragon who looks like a much younger girl.]]) If Chrom marries Olivia or the peasant girl, Lissa implies this might be the case, but her phrasing is ambiguous and the TimeSkip is long enough (two years) that they may have just been [[InsatiableNewlyweds reckless]].

** In "Mama's Baby, Carlton's Maybe", Carlton tries to have one with Cindy, his old flame who left him childless but came back after having a baby which Carlton swears up and down is his. Seriously, the chapel they attend has all the effiency of a short-order restaurant, complete with a "Now Serving" counter! [[spoiler:It gets called off when she tells her parents what she's doing, and they, having kicked her out for having a baby, take her back before she can get married. It then turns out Carlton never slept with her and knew all along it wasn't his kid because he was afraid to admit two things - one, she'd moved on after dumping him and even ''slept with'' someone else while Carlton's always been in love with her, and he's an ambitious virgin determined to [[SexAsRiteOfPassage turn in his V-card]]... but still hasn't done so]].
