* Lampshaded on an episode of ''TheSimpsons'', which shows Bart (now a teenager) in a relationship with a [[HighSchoolSweethearts high school girlfriend]], who mentions that they're supposed to vow to be together forever and get divorced within five years.
* On ''{{Daria}}'' the title character's cousin gets married in season two. By season five they're getting divorced; apparently the cousin only wanted to get married because her then-boyfriend gave her herpes and she didn't think anyone else would want her. {{Subverted}}, however, when they reconcile. (Except for the wedding, all of this happens off-screen, though it affects the Morgendorffers indirectly.)
