* ''Film/InLoveAndWar'' (1958) centers on three Marines in WorldWarII, first on leave, then in battle. One, Nico, uses his leave to propose to and marry his pregnant girlfriend. It isn't a ShotgunWedding; they're genuinely in love and no one is making him. Perhaps predictably, [[spoiler: he's the one of the three who doesn't survive]].

* ''Literature/ASongOfFireAndIce'': So much. Considering that pretty much the whole story is set in war, it makes sense.

* A B-plot in the GauntsGhosts novel ''Salvation's Reach'' involves the marriage of Captain Ban Daur and his girlfriend Elodie Dutana. At first, she thinks he is having second thoughts [[GreenEyedMonster because of a new arrival]], an officer from his homeworld of Verghast that [[NewOldFlame he knew once upon a time]]. When confronted, he explains that he never felt anything for the other officer, aside from reminisces about his old home, but he was hesitant to go through with it because "a Guardsman who [[GenreSavvy gets married before a mission]] only does it for one reason" (to provide for his wife in case he dies by ensuring she gets his pension) and he didn't want her to think that he wasn't coming back. He realizes [[PoorCommunicationKills he could just]] ''explain'' that, and they are married on the troopship by Gaunt, with the entire regiment as witnesses. [[spoiler: During the mission to Salvation's Reach, Daur ''is'' seriously wounded, but recovers.]]

The WartimeWedding is a great way to put a HopeSpot in the middle of a story in order to lighten the mood, considering that among other things, a marriage symbolizes love and unity, reminding the characters in the universe that things such as happiness still exist.

* While less prevalent in the present day, soldiers who marry immediately before a deployment often do so for the very pragmatic reason that spouses may be entitled to benefits if the soldier should die on duty, while girlfriends, boyfriends, sweethearts, and "live-in friends" get nothing.
