* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' plays around quite a bit with this. After a particularly nasty battle in the second season, [[PluckyGirl Atra]] gets it in her head to have a child with the protagonist [[AntiHero Mikazuki]] to give him a reason to live and snap him out of his self-destructive tendencies. And if it's not with her, then him impregnating [[TheOjou Kudelia]] is another option. [[spoiler:Hilariously, when she finally does ask Mika about it, his response is basically "Yeah, sure"... Unfortunately, he winds up dying in the end anyway, leaving Atra to raise little Akatsuki [[HasTwoMommies with Kudelia]].]]

* Every daytime SoapOpera ever, and nine tenths of every hispanic telenovelas made. Often paired with FakePregnancy,(in)ConvenientMiscarriage (and if the woman was faking the pregnancy, she will fake this too in order to avoid any suspicions about why she's not showing. In an ironic twist, she will ''still'' use this to ensnare the man, as his guilt will force him to stay with her and bond over their supposed grief), and LawOfInversePaternity (at the very least, even if she isn't certain that the baby is another man's, she will ignore the possibility so as to get her hooks into the one she wants).

** A male version on ''Series/TheBoldAndTheBeautiful'' had Sly poking a hole in the condom so that he could "do the right thing" and marry his girlfriend Jessica -- and get his hands on her money.

** A male version on ''Series/TheBoldAndTheBeautiful'' had Sly poking a hole in the condom so that he could "do the right thing" and marry his girlfriend Jessica -- and get his hands on her money. It failed when he was too drunk to complete the deed.



** Like the ''All My Children'' example, ''Series/GuidingLight'' had Annie damaging her diaphragm rather than the condom. It backfired for the same reason -- husband Josh had told her he wanted to wait to have kids and her deception was the last straw. She miscarried. . . and framed his ex Reva for manslaughter by making it look like she'd pushed her down the stairs.

Added DiffLines:

* Another unusual version on ''Series/TheCosbyShow'', where the friend that Denise is planning a bridal shower for admits that she got pregnant on purpose, but not to make her boyfriend marry her, but so that their parents would allow them to (the couple was madly in love but both sets of parents were insisting that they wait to complete college before marrying).
