** [[spoiler:Bill's and Fleur's]] wedding in the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows seventh book]].

to:

** [[spoiler:Bill's and Fleur's]] wedding in the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows seventh book]]. For added bonus, the reception eventually falls in the crossfire, too.
** While not shown, [[spoiler: Lupin and Tonks]] marry between the sixth and seventh books, more than a year after the Second Wizarding War officially commenced.


Added DiffLines:

** James and Lily Potter also had both their wedding and the birth of their son during the last stages of the First Wizarding War. The last bit is especially important since Voldemort wouldn't fall (and the War wouldn't end) without Harry being born.

* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'': Will and Elizabeth not only get married in the middle of a war, but also in the middle of a ''battle''. [[MarriedAtSea On a pirate ship.]]

* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'': Will and Elizabeth not only get married in the middle of a war, but also in the middle of a ''battle''. [[MarriedAtSea On a pirate ship.]]]] PlayedForLaughs when they realize they need a minister, and decide to enlist the help of ship captain Barbossa (who, apparently, can still perform marriages despite being the captain of a ''pirate'' ship) - but when they ask him, he rightly protests that [[CasualDangerDialog he's a little busy at the moment]].

* The Baby Boom in all countries after WorldWarII was basically the result of this. American [=GIs=] were getting married and having kids because they were happy to be home after all those years; Europeans and Japanese were simply [[GladToBeAliveSex happy to be alive]]. Also, a not-insignificant number of Americans of several ethnicities contributed to the European boom, [[IChooseToStay electing to stay there]] rather than return (this was particularly common for black troops, who preferred the casual unofficial racism of Europe to the more virulent and structured Jim Crow).

* This is part of Lori's [[{{Backstory}} backstory]] in the ''AuntDimity'' series: her parents married during WWII. It's also averted by [[spoiler: Dimity, who broke off her engagement to Bobby [=MacLaren=]]]. Curiously, both couple's actions were prompted by the same risk of death due to the war.

* In ''Series/HoratioHorblower's'' third series, most of Horatio's crew seem to believe his hasty wedding to Maria is because they don't want to miss the opportunity with war freshly renewed. Bush alludes to it himself, but he's also more acquainted with the matter--which is that Horatio is only doing it because he can't figure out how to turn her down. At least everyone else enjoys the festivities.
