* The title and chorus of "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" by NeilDiamond seem to indicate this but the verses don't mention it.
* "Pop Star" a parody of {{Nickelback}}'s song "Rockstar," has a line that says "my listeners will be people in their 'tweens/and old perverts who can't wait 'til I turn 18."

* The song "Does Your Mother Know?" by {{ABBA}} is about this trope, and ''Theatre/MammaMia'''s use of it (actually, Tanya in general) resulted in a rare female example.
* Referenced by {{Eminem}} in his song "Ass Like That":

There is a famous performer who was over 50 and had a 16-year-old girlfriend, which was legal in his state of residence, Nevada. So they get married so he can take her with him when he performs in California, because that is the only exception to the "no sex with someone under 18" law; legally you can have sex with someone under 18 in California only if you're married to them.

* In TeresaEdgerton's second {{Celydonn}} trilogy, Gwenlliant is married to her cousin when she is twelve; he is more than a decade older and would have preferred to wait at least four years before courting her, but her father forced the issue by setting up an ArrangedMarriage for her with a DomesticAbuser. A long period of InnocentCohabitation follows. At one point Gwenlliant spends about a year longer in the Inner Celydonn than has passed in the real Celydonn, which has two unintended side effects: reducing the wait, and of separating them for so long that a WeddingDeadline is introduced.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheRedTent'', Laban agrees to give Rachel in marriage to Jacob, but (per [[MamaBear Adah's]] [[AlmightyMom orders]]), they have to wait until a) Rachel menstruates and b) a customary 6 months after her first period. Only ''then'' would she be considered (in that time and place) eligible for marriage. (So the "7 years" he was to work for Laban to get her in the Biblical canon become 7 ''months'' instead.)

* Sort of alluded to in ''HunterXHunter'', where Hisoka's impatient waiting for Gon and Killua is made out to be a parallel to a hebephile waiting for his target to become legal. His wording of how he can't wait to "pluck the fruit that hasn't ripened yet" doesn't help his case. At first he was very definitely just looking for good fights and they had potential, but after Greed Island where he unabashedly got a (speech-bubble-covered) erection after they found him bathing and ogled their butts, he's apparently equal-op. Especially remarakable in that Gon was probably aware of this (and Killua definitely was) when Gon produced a plan to win at [[MundaneMadeAwesome extreme dodgeball]] that involved Killua being driven face-first into Hisoka's crotch. (By Gon and a super-sonic dodgeball, so mostly it's just a matter of ''owch,'' but still.) [[RefugeInAudacity Hisoka cackled about it.]]
* In the Japanese version of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' Brock said this towards Casey, the baseball obsessed girl from Johto. Brock said she'd be 'fun' in eight years.

In the Japanese version of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' Brock said this towards Casey, the baseball obsessed girl from Johto. Brock said she'd be 'fun' in eight years. That's likely the only example besides Giselle of him hitting on a girl younger than him.
** In an early episode a DirtyOldMan told Misty that she'd be fun in eight years. In the English dub he says that she reminds him of his granddaughter, which arguably just makes it sound [[IncestIsRelative worse]].

* In MegCabot's 1-800-WhereRU series, teen psychic Jess falls for older bad boy Rob... who turns her down. Of course, he later explains that he turned her down because he had a criminal record and was on probation until he turned 21 [[spoiler: for trespassing in a swimming pool]]. He didn't want to get in further trouble for dating a minor. However [[spoiler: it is later revealed that Rob was planning to propose to Jess pretty soon after she turned 18. Except she joined a war instead.]]

* Pages could be written on this for the works of Creator/PiersAnthony - well, perhaps not, given that some of them don't wait - but a particular note needs to be made of the sixty-plus-year-old judge and the ''fourteen-year-old'' drug addict prostitute in [[Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality And Eternity]]. She spends a few days in Heaven, during which two years passes on Earth, [[LegalJailbait so it's legal]] (at least in that jurisdiction) - but she's still ''fourteen'' in body and mind! And they don't entirely wait, either - they get it on during a camping trip while the girl is possessed by a (to be fair, much older) ghost.

** Also played with in the series, with Lt. Eddie Catrell. He falls head over heels in love with a princess who is 16. He specifically ruminates on the different age-of-consent laws he's used to, but acknowledges that none of that applies in the 17th century, it's her royal bloodline that makes her off-limits. In the end, in turns out her family had been plotting to manipulate him into marrying her, knowing that he'd be a useful political and technical resource.
