* When gay marriage was legalized in New Jersey in October of 2013, newly elected Newark mayor Cory Booker officiated the first marriages of several gay couples at Newark City Hall. When he said the phrase, a heckler yelled, jumped up and began shouting, "This is unlawful in the eyes of God!" Booker had the heckler thrown out by security, and then said, "Not hearing any substantive, worthy objections, I now will proceed" to a standing ovation.

* [[spoiler: Zalasta]] crashes the wedding at the end of the ''[[{{Elenium}} Tamuli]]'' shouting that he forbids it to happen. It's not clear whether this objection was allowed in any of the religions represented at the wedding. [[spoiler: Zalasta]] certainly isn't counting on it, he goes straight to trying to kill the bridegroom.

* In the {{Hentai}} {{RPG}} ''Brave Soul'' Hero Rudy has to bust into the wedding of {{Cloudcuckoolander}} RebelliousPrincess Karen to keep her from getting married to some prince she doesn't want to marry. He disguises himself by wearing a pair of ''spectacles''. Then the two of them run off and have sex (it IS a h-game after all). The twist is that he gets away with it because the prince didn't really want to marry Karen either- he's actually gay and finds Rudy ''much'' more attractive...

In RealLife, the officiant's words and the couple's vows are different for every wedding. Many weddings exclude this line altogether, but it's still legally enforced in some jurisdictions -- for example, in the Church of England. The only place most people will ever hear of it is through the media. Interestingly, one of the reasons it was removed from many liturgies was the tendency of [[{{Jerkass}} certain self-important and arrogant jerks to disrupt strangers' wedding ceremonies]] by objecting, usually by accusing the bride of being [[MyGirlIsNotASlut a disease-ridden whore]]. [[SarcasmMode Ha. Ha.]] [[DudeNotFunny Yeah.]] (Or better yet, the intruder is a StalkerWithACrush who somehow believes he/she and the target were [[IfICantHaveYou meant to be together]].)

Remember, this line is supposed to be used to uncover impediments to the marriage for instance that one of them is already married, [[SurpriseIncest the bride and groom are actually closely related]] or other legitimate reason that the wedding should not take place not for an unwanted suitor to show up, disrupt the proceedings and claim rights to (as appropriate) either the bride or groom.

groom. Now something of a DiscreditedTrope (if not a ForgottenTrope) in most Western countries, since the legal (civil) aspect of marriage is separate from any religious or spiritual aspect nowadays, and a couple who (for whatever reason(s)) could not legally marry would not be issued a civil marriage license. [[note]](They ''may'', however, still be able to have a religious ceremony, depending on the policies of their religion and officiant; some officiants would perform the ceremony anyway, others would not do so until the problems concerning the marriage license are sorted out. It just would not be legally-binding or recognized under civil law.)[[/note]]

* Parodied by ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' in their 'Scotsman on a Horse' skit, in which the wedding is interrupted at a similar point by the titular scotsman entering the chapel, walking down the lane and, without missing a beat, wordlessly carrying off... The groom.

* In ''[[{{Temeraire}} Empire of Ivory]]'', we have a ''very'' narrow aversion played for comedy. When the [[MarriedAtSea ship's chaplain]] gets to the phrase in question, a 15 tonne dragon with acid spray that could trivially sink the boat they are on leans in to ask "Mayn't I?" The bride who had raised said dragon from hatching simply looked up and said "No, you may ''not''!" Sighs and a threat to chuck the groom overboard if he is unpleasant to his new wife ensue.
