In {{Love Triangle}}s and [[LoveDodecahedron more complicated]] [[UnwantedHarem situations]], selecting just one suitor can prove to be a toughie. After all, the situation is there because he usually [[LoveYouAndEverybody likes every girl to a degree]] and doesn't want to break anyone's heart or make them leave his company. Even if he likes one particular girl, there's little guarantee that the rest will be [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy willing to accept his choice]], especially in long-running harem series. This often happens when the love polygon devolves into TrueCompanions and infatuations become close friendships instead.

So if FirstGirlWins, LastGirlWins, and/or CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds clearly aren't where the plot is going, there's another way to resolve the situation: Instead of choosing one girl, the protagonist simply [[{{Polyamory}} marries them all and they all live as one large family]].

The happiness of those involved depends on where on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism the series is; the ''only'' way (excluding large amounts of [[Franchise/{{Naruto}} Shadow Clone]] [[PowerPerversionPotential abuse]]) this kind of ending will not end in a perpetual warzone of a DysfunctionalFamily with an emotionally-dead HenpeckedHusband (''Anime/TenchiMuyoGXP'') or a bloodbath within the year (''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'') is if the wives are also close friends who love ''each other'' like sisters ([[PairTheSuitors or something]] [[{{Yuri Genre}} else]]).

May require ExoticExtendedMarriage if the marriage is literal. In RealLife, such a thing is called polygamy. Which is illegal in most of the world.

See also OneTrueThreesome and {{Polyamory}}. Contrast DumpThemAll, where none of the girls get him and/or chooses someone outside the circle and NoRomanticResolution where there is no conclusion between the love interest and the circle and he remains a [[HandsomeLech (usually)]] CelibateHero. Not to be confused with [[WesternAnimation/{{Thumbelina}} Marry the Mole]].


* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDr5wIcGLR4 This Lynx[=/=]Axe commercial]] depicts an average every guy who becomes the sole object of attraction to a literal tribe of Stone Age warrior women, thanks to the titular product. He doesn't seem too bothered by it.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/AiKora'', Hachibei explicitly says he plans to do this. Though this becomes especially implausible [[spoiler:after Tsubame-sensei gets a new boyfriend, and Kirino moves away after becoming an idol singer. He seems to have abandoned it completely in the final volume after [[LoveEpiphany realizing how much he loves Sakurako]].]]
* In ''LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties'', this is how Eris suggests resolving the LoveDodecahedron with herself, Aoi, and Manami over Kio. Since Catian Earth doesn't have a law against mistresses, it's ok to share Kio. The other girls are ok with it.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Orihime suggests something close to this effect. Though her feelings for Ichigo are obvious from the beginning of the manga, she eventually asks Rukia point-blank if she has feelings for Ichigo. Rukia denies this, and Orihime is actually ''disappointed'' because she feels that [[{{OT3}} if they both loved Ichigo]], they could ''gang up on him'' and the [[{{cloudcuckoolander}} "girls would win"]].
** In the 23rd anime ending, [[ChivalrousPervert Shunsui]] is shown having a date with two girls: his lieutenant [[HotLibrarian Nanao Ise]] and [[spoiler: his ex-lieutenant]] [[{{Meganekko}} Lisa Yadomaru]] from the Vaizards. Given the latter's taste in "reading materials", this is entirely plausible. How they convinced Nanao to go along with however...
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' teases thisin the second season. [[GenkiGirl Kaguya]], devoted fangirl and would-be wife of Zero/Lelouch, is perfectly okay with him supposedly eyeing other women like his bodyguard [[ActionGirl Kallen]] or his partner [[MysteriousWaif C.C.]], because as Kaguya puts it, "Heroes are known for loving many women", and comments that the three of them are united in their devotion to Zero. Not that he's been [[CelibateHero eyeing any woman at all, really]], but her claim of them being "The Three Court Ladies" is so popular with the fandom that it's [[MemeticMutation memetic]]. His father had 108 wives (being Emperor), lending it some credibility
* In ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', it ''almost'' happens when Mia (lamia), Centorea (centaur), and Papi (harpy) go into heat during the full moon and they mutually offer to Kimihito to become his harem [he hides from them until the full moon is over as he is afraid that in their unthinking state, their sheer raw physical power will literally kill him], and it is actually suggested directly to him by Suu (slime) when the mothers of the aforementioned first 3 girls come to visit (one at a time) to appraise their prospective future son-in-law.
* Happens in ''Manga/DearS'' by default, as Takeya ends up the only guy on a spaceship full of horny alien slavegirls in heat, which is going on a tour of the galaxy (two of them -- Ren and Miu -- were explicitly in love with him while still on Earth and two others -- Nia and China -- had previously expressed attraction).
* ''Anime/DualParallelTroubleAdventure'': At the end of episode 14, Kazuki is made to go alone into space, with both Mizukis, Yayoi, and D (all the girls in love with him) as his official staff, at the actual instigation of the all the major parental authority figures (the Sanada and Rara parents) in the series. No big surprise, since it's from the same company that made ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'', and is in fact canonically considered to be connected to ''Tenchi Muyo'' by TheMultiverse concept.
* In ''Manga/FujimuraKunMates'', much to Fujimura's dismay he ends up living together with all the girls. Himuro even goes as far as becoming the President of Japan just to change the law to allow polygamy!
* In ''{{Manga/Gintama}}'', Gintoki ended up in one of these situations after a particularly spectacular bender. He ended up trying to set up households with almost the entire main female cast including [[CoolOldLady Ototse]] and shockingly, even [[ButtMonkey Hasegawa]] ''who is a married heterosexual male'', and nearly went nuts in the process. [[spoiler:The whole thing was set up by the women in an attempt to get him to stop drinking so much.]] [[spoiler:Except Hasegawa, who was not part of the set up.]]
* In ''Manga/HappyLesson'', all 5 of the hero's "mothers" decide that he's outgrown the need for a parental figure, so obviously what he needs next is wives.
* In ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'', WordOfGod states that "Every heroine will get a happy ending." The normal day-to-day life of the main cast falls into {{Polyamory}}. An "EX Novel" set in one possible future of the series shows that Issei is indeed married to multiple women and has had at least one child with each heroine.
* In ''LightNovel/InAnotherWorldWithMySmartphone'', polygamy is legal in the fantasy world, so God nonchalantly proposes that Touya do this with the girls he is travelling with. Eventually, [[spoiler: all the girls in the party confess their love to Touya, and he not only marries them, he also marries Sue, Leen, and the princesses of three other nations.]]
* ''Manga/IonoTheFanatics''. [[GirlsLove Queen Iono loves every single girl]] in her harem and they love her back. All 50,000+ of them.
* A true example with the final chapter of ''Manga/JoujuuSenjinMushibugyou'' [[JustForPun coupled]] with BabiesEverAfter.
* ''LightNovel/{{Kanokon}}'' has an odd variation in which the guy in question doesn't even make the call; the last episode has Chizuru and Nozomu agreeing to share Kouta. Also, whenever he tries to pick and just go for it, he is interrupted.
* Hazumu from ''Manga/KashimashiGirlMeetsGirl'' tried this one, but it ended up completely collapsing into a quantum romance singularity.
* In the ''Anime/{{Maburaho}}'' anime, Kazuki uses his magic to create ''ten clones'' of himself, just so there's enough of him for the girls to share. This solves nothing whatsoever, as the ClingyJealousGirl wants them ALL for herself.
* Implied in ''LightNovel/MagiciansAcademy'', as Takuto loves all three of them equally.
* The manga version of ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'', with Hikaru declaring she's going to marry both of her love interests. Though what Hikaru actually says is that she wants to be with the ones she loves forever (Which is how Eagle describes marriage), and then defines the ones she loves to be [[LoveYouAndEverybody virtually entire cast]].
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'':
** The manga gives us "The ''Saishoudoukin''[=/=][[{{Woolseyism}} Polygamy]] ImagineSpot incident", courtesy of [[ShrinkingViolet Nodoka]][[note]]the last person in the cast that is expected to be a CovertPervert[[/note]]. Initially, she began to worry about her best friend's crush on Negi, but gets even more embarrassed when the first thing her magic book (which she uses to read her own mind) subconsciously suggests is a Saishoudoukin, where a man has his wife ''and'' mistress ''in the same house''. Or, taken literally, in the same ''bed''. What makes it even funnier is the fact that the mind reading is accompanied by a little doodle of her, Negi, and Yue sharing a bed (and followed by an image of Yue mounting Negi while she looks on). Ye gods, girl.
** This is also the resolution to the Final Movie; put on the spot to pick one girl for a full contract, he goes ahead and forms full contracts ''with all thirty-one students''. Even though you ''can't do that''. Somewhere over the door of the Springfield family ranch (which will need expansion) is a sign saying "The Laws Of Magic Can Get Bent."
** Ultimately inverted in ''Manga/UQHolder'', [[spoiler: Negi rejects Nodoka and Yue when they confess to him again on the graduation day, and goes to confess to Chisame (eventually marrying her a decade later).]]
* In the ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' anime, Luna and Harp Note at one point try to make [=MegaMan=] choose between them. We don't see exactly what Geo says, but he goes for this solution. In the original Japanese anime at least, Subaru (Geo) says "We're all just friends, right?" with which the girls are seemingly satisfied.
** Can happen in the third game of the series as well, if the player wants. The player can either have Geo save Luna's things (and have an extra scene with her), Sonia's (and have an extra scene with her), or... Bud's, in which case there is no extra scene with the girls.
* In ''Manga/NagasareteAirantou'', Ikuto is the only male on Airantou Island with an all-female tribe of sexy amazon gals, whose other half mysteriously vanished after getting caught in a storm at sea while fishing. [[spoiler: It is revealed in the last episode of the anime that his sister Misaki is experiencing the exact same situation, ''only gender-flipped'', on the ''other'' Airantou Island, this time ''as the only female with all the missing (also-sexy) amazon guys''.]]
* At the end of the ''Anime/{{Photon}}'' OVA, our heroes have dispatched the BigBad, and two of the three girls in Photon's [[HaremGenre Harem]] start bickering over who gets him. Photon promptly [[FaceDoodling draws on each of their foreheads]] the same kana for baka that's on his forehead ([[ItMakesSenseInContext it's an in-universe cultural thing, apparently]]), and proudly declares "I'll protect all of you!"
* This idea was actually raised in a manga chapter of ''Manga/RosarioToVampire''. Pretty much all of Tsukune's harem ''except'' Moka were almost immediately in favor of the idea.
* In ''Anime/SaberMarionetteJ'', Otaru is shown to end up with all three of the girls -- Lime, Cherry, and Bloodberry.
** Subverted in the second season, ''Saber Marionette J to X'', in that [[spoiler: Lime, Cherry, and Bloodberry end up getting turned into babies, and Otaru raises them as his daughters.]] However, [[spoiler: ''Cherry's still in love -- and [[FilleFatale lust]]! -- with Otaru anyway'', regardless of their new situation, implying possible future ParentalIncest ala WifeHusbandry.]]
* Often averted/subverted in ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', as every single one of his harem are Yanderes (ironically, except for the First Girl, who's actually the driving force for the harem), in addition to being psychologically "toxic" in some way. Even when they do agree to share him, their consensus concept of sharing is more often than not, ''literal physical division'' of the object of their affections. Until the penultimate chapter that is, when the 12 main girls marry him all at once. It's a bit complicated, however. [[spoiler: The crux of the matter is that the First Girl, Fuura Kafuka, had been DeadAllAlong. Her organs had gone to said twelve girls. What ends up happening is that Nozomu (the titular sensei) sees Kafuka in each of the girls, one at a time (how his sister Rin puts it, he's in love with her eyes, then her lungs, then her vocal cords, etc.) On paper, it's an endless cycle of marriage and divorce between Nozomu and the girls. In Nozomu's eyes, he's ''always'' been married to Kafuka and Kafuka alone; in the eyes of outsiders, it certainly looks like this trope, especially since ''all'' the girls have children by him... and the kids ''eerily'' look like Kafuka). It's also implied that by all the girls donating their blood (metaphorically Kafuka's blood) to her, the journalist that was investigating Nozomu and the girls will join the cycle. It's also been implied that there's one guy in the harem as well, who had gotten a blood transfusion from Kafuka's blood. It's more specifically implied that Kafuka was possessing ''him'' when Nozomu first married her.]]
* Averted in the ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' anime: Things do not work out between the LoveTriangle and it ends with Makoto [[spoiler:being [[KnifeNut stabbed to death by Sekai]], who just [[BreakTheCutie can't take it anymore]]. Kotonoha later [[AxCrazy kills Sekai with a cleaver]], cuts her open to confirm she wasn't pregnant, and, apparently completely insane, leaves with [[OffWithHisHead Makoto's severed head]] in a gym bag.]] Though it should be noticed that, in the VisualNovel, [[{{OT3}} this can be played straight.]] Not only there's the possibility of having Makoto, Kotonoha and Sekai engage in a three-way sex scene (with bonus LesYay snowballing between the girls), but there is at least one ending in which Kotonoha and Sekai DO reach an agreement and decide to "share" Makoto's affections. (It IS rather hard to get, however.)
* ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'':
** The standard trope of having to choose one girl is actually part of the BigBad's [[DeconstructedTrope plan]]. Minato considers this to be a cruel choice, and declares his intention to be with all six of his Sekirei forever.
** Seo and the twins Hikari and Hibiki seem to have gone with this option, as have Sanada and his PowerTrio. At the end of the series, Seo and the twins[[spoiler:have managed to make two sets of twins, all boys born on the same day, who share their mothers' electric powers]].
* Also occurs in ''Manga/ShinaDark''.
* ''Manga/SorcererHunters'':
** In a later episode of the anime, Tira and Chocolat have a heartfelt sisterly talk about their feelings for Carrot, and it's strongly hinted that not only don't they mind sharing, but Carrot wouldn't mind being shared ({{OT3}} for the win!).
** The manga version handles the triangle differently; Carrot and Tira become the OfficialCouple at the end, and Chocolat decides to wish them well... as long as ''she's'' the first to have "Darling"'s child. [[spoiler:The {{revival}} manga shows that she's accomplished her mission, with her as the mother of two children that she ''swears'' she can't remember the father of...]]
* Non-romantic example ([[LesYay well, probably]]): In ''Manga/SoulEaterNot'', Tsugumi, [[EquippableAlly a weapon]], has two meister friends vying to wield her in a situation that plays out very much like a love triangle. Eventually, she realizes they're capable of three-person [[CombinedEnergyAttack soul resonance]] and decides to partner with both of them. [[FridgeHorror It becomes especially jarring when you consider]] that this means that at any given time, one of the meisters will be without a weapon to defend themselves. Also, remember that [[ShrinkingViolet shy weapon]] that Anya had to pair up with? Yep, he is going to be without a meister until another free one appears.
* In the hentai manga ''Tayu-Tayu'' by Yamatogawa, this option is forced on the OfficialCouple by, basically, all the other girls in the harem.
-->'''One of the girls:''' "Hey, Midori! We're stealing your man!"\\
'''Midori:''' (after being screwed into exhaustion) "Aw, hell... Do whatever you want..." (slides to the floor out-of-panel)
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'':
** The discovery in the {{OVA}} that Juraians practice polygamy implies that Tenchi could do this. In the original series, he tends towards NoRomanticResolution by remaining friendly with all of the girls but not favoring any of them, but in the core continuity's [[AllThereInTheManual tie-in doujinshi]], it is clearly stated that [[spoiler:he did eventually marry them all, though Washu is the first one to bear him a child]]. This trope was originally called the "Tenchi Solution".
** Both the OVA and GXP justify this by stating that the marriages are political: Ayeka and Sasami are granddaughters to Seto, the most powerful noble in Jurai who bosses the King [[spoiler:and Sasami herself [[FusionDance is gradually merging]] with Tsunami, the patron goddess of Jurai and one of three known 11-dimensional entities named the Choushin (literally "super-deity"), into a singular being]]; Noike is the adopted daughter of Seto [[spoiler:and the female half of Kagato, which also means that she is a Naja Akara clone and as result has the same genetic makeup as Seto-no-onihime]]; Mihoshi is a member of the Kuramitsu family, one of the most powerful families in the universe; Washu is [[spoiler:a Choushin]] and sister to [[spoiler:the aforementioned patron deity of the Juraians as well as Mihoshi's ancestor]]; [[spoiler:Tokimi eventually decides to live in Tenchi's house with her sisters, though she apparently doesn't have a romantic relation with him]]; Ryoko is technically Washu's daughter [[spoiler:and therefore technically half-choushin]]; and Ryo-ohki is Ryoko's ship. As the third OVA and GXP quickly point out, Tenchi's household is ''the'' single highest concentration of power, Physical, Political, ''and'' Supernatural in the universe.
** In the canon spinoff ''Anime/TenchiMuyoWarOnGeminar'', Tenchi's brother Kenshi mentions all of Tenchi's girls as his "elder sisters", implying that 15 years after the OVA end, they are still around him.
** As seen in the page picture, in ''Anime/TenchiMuyoGXP'' Tenchi's friend Seina, in a similar predicament with ''nine'' women (five main, four minor), has his problem solved for him by simply being ordered to "politically" marry his main five love interests. (The other four kidnap him just before the wedding and ravish him to get in on it; it apparently works out somehow.) Tenchi even attended the wedding.
* As seen in chapter 162 of ''Manga/ToLoveRu'', Lala not only does not mind the possibility of both her and Haruna marrying Rito but is actively enthusiastic about it. Later, he accidentally says "I love you" to several of the other girls (even thought it was meant for Haruna), and Lala does not mind sharing him with them too. And it's implied that, by Deviluke law, he could take even more wives once he becomes king after officially marrying Lala. Hooray for the harem?
** In the sequel ''Manga/ToLoveRu Darkness'', Momo explicitly wants this outcome (with her in the harem of course) and knows that the biggest hurdle is Rito himself.
* ''Manga/TrinitySeven'' has established this as one of the likely eventual outcomes of the story, since at least three of the titular seven have explicitly said they'd be open to it and one is both without jealousy and sometimes just as perverted as Arata towards the other girls, and that's not even getting into the other female characters. Furthermore, due to the ''ViciousCycle'' [[spoiler:time loop of Arata eventually becoming the Magic King, taking the Trinity Seven as his soldier-concubines, then destroying the universe so it can promptly be remade again and repeat the cycle,]] technically this has already happened at least once.
* ''Manga/UmiNoMisaki'', by the author of ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi''. A Tokyo teen moves to the southern island his late mother grew up on, and finds out that not only is he the prophesied reincarnated Dragon God of the local religious offshoot, the three hot girls that have been treating him badly are shrine maidens dedicated to serving him with their minds and bodies. Oh, and the Dragon God is supposed to give one (at least, it has not been clearly stated) his "favor". Of course, now the three maidens have fallen in love with him and trying their (non-violent) best to get the Dragon God to pick them, while the guy is attracted to and likes the three maidens as well . The story works itself into a [=OT4=] ending, since this is really not a dark series, and having the guy pick only one girl would probably tear the other two to pieces. At the end, despite first the Rising Dragon Festival and then Shizukus [[spoiler:attempted suicide]] trying to railroad him into a choice, Nagi refuses to lose anyone and essentially forces the island [[spoiler:and the Dragon God]] to accept that he will be with all three of them forever. The epilogue chapters show that the four of them are getting along perfectly well despite the oddity of their relationship.
* In ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'', Hitomi jokingly suggests this when Milerna comes to her with an IHaveThisFriend LoveTriangle dilemma regarding Dryden and Allen. Milerna rejects the idea out of hand ("But that's so ''immoral''!"), much to the dismay of fanfic writers everywhere.
* ''Yomeiro Choice'' ends this way when the male lead gets over his indecisiveness and realizes that he loves his daughters from the future too much to allow any of them to vanish from the timestream. The series ends with the daughters now arguing about which one should be conceived ''first''. [[spoiler:It's even implied that his harem expands to include, not only all of his incestuously-lustful daughters, but ''even their various grandmothers/his mothers-in-law'' in one giant aphrodisiac-fuelled orgy.]]

[[folder:Comic Book]]
* In ComicBook/SecretSix, when it was being brought to a (premature) end due to the ContinuityReboot, Creator/GailSimone had its lead, Scandal Savage, marry both her love interests: an exotic dancer named Liana, and a New God named Knockout. Yes, you read that right, it ended with a polygamous lesbian marriage.
* In a variation of this, a Silver Age Superman story that saw Superman be split into red and blue versions of himself allowed one of them to marry Lois and the other to marry Lana.
** A more disturbing version comes in another Silver Age Superman comic where Lois and Lana find that Superman had been changed into a child and both decide to condition the kid into proposing to them when he's older. It turns out that it was actually a version of Superman from another dimension where polygamy is legal, so he wound up marrying both of them. Shown in this [[http://www.cracked.com/article_18957_the-8-most-awkward-sexual-moments-in-comic-book-history_p2.html Cracked article.]]

* The concept of the {{OT3}} (or [=OT4=], [=OT5=], etc.) in fanfiction is much like an {{OTP}}, but with three or more characters together rather than two. It's quite handy for reconciling opposing ships.
* This is how ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'' ended. [[spoiler:After spending months together in a [[{{Polyamory}} polyamorous]] relationship, Italy proposed to both Germany and Japan in front of all the other countries during one of their World Meetings. Everyone cheered as Germany and Japan tackled Italy to the ground and showered him with kisses.]]
* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': In chapter 8 the main characters meet an alternate Shinji with a very convoluted past: in short, he thought Asuka died; fell in love with another girl and was about to when she got murdered; met Asuka again; got killed... and then a bunch of Avaloni imperial troopers showed up in that dimension. Shinji and his fiancée were brought back to life and the two of them, together with Asuka, were transported to Avalon to get rest and healing. When Daniel saw Shinji was conflicted over being reunited with the two women he loved, he mentioned that his country's laws allow someone to have several spouses as long as they agree to "share".
* Played with ''FanFic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'' in-universe. Shinji's fan clubs are averse to the idea ("The four points star was not a valid option, dammit."), the Farseer in his head wants this and Rei is practically shoving the idea down his throat.
* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Subverted. For most of the story Shinji clearly considers [[FieryRedhead Asuka]] [[HeroesWantRedheads his girlfriend]], Rei his surrogate sister and Misato her surrogate mother. However, Rei's crush on Shinji (and her willingness to talk Asuka into a threesome) and Misato's proclivity to tease him complicate matters. Shinji did not plan getting married to anyone other than Asuka, but when [[spoiler:the four of them ascend to godhood]], Shinji takes the three of them as his wives out of a desire to make them happy.
* Played for comedy in Roleplay/{{DC Nation}}'s [[http://dc-nation.dreamwidth.org/62135.html Heaven or Las Vegas]]. The Zamaraons attempt to figure out what makes the {{Green Lantern}}s of Earth tick and refine the process behind the Star Sapphire rings. To do this, they take the Earth-based lanterns, and put them in a theme-park version of Las Vegas. While most of the Lanterns wake up in the surreal "test environment" with the woman they're currently dating, Hal wakes up in bed with Carol Ferris, Arisia, "Cowgirl Jill," and [[ComicBook/{{Blackhawk}} Zinda "Lady Blackhawk" Blake]] -- ALL AT ONCE.
* Possibly the only option for Rachel Summers in [[http://www.scribbld.com/community/marvel_nextgen/ Marvel Nextgen]]. Current roster of young men courting her include a Shi'ar Imperial Prince, a Logan, and a non-mutant catboy. Franklin Richards is a recurring joke.
** Honestly, this resolution would not make the TangledFamilyTree noticeably more complicated.
* The Literature/HarryPotter FanFic [[http://hp.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600010641 "The Issue Of Mine Enemy"]] ends with Bellatrix, Marietta Edgecombe, Hermione, Ginny and Gabrielle Delacour all marrying Harry. Yes, it's on [[NotSafeForWork adultfanfiction.net]].
** This occurs in a large number of ''Harry Potter'' fanfics, due to so-called "Pureblood marriage contracts", and almost always to Harry. It even has a ship name: Harem!Harry.
* The ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' one-shot "[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5505618/1/ Nanoha's Problem]]" takes this trope to its logical extreme.
* In ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'', the odd situation in Hinamizawa was resolved this way. [[spoiler:This inspired Haruhi to start aiming for it herself, between all the girls in the SOS Brigade and Kyon.]]
** This is actually deconstructed and then reconstructed in the same chapter. [[spoiler:According to Rika, the romantic situation at the end of the ''[[VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry Higurashi]]'' series turned into a NoRomanticResolution situation for several years until Rika was physically old enough to make her move on Keiichi, but [[ClingyJealousGirl the way she tried to catch Keiichi's notice]] nearly destroyed her and Keiichi's relationship with [[FirstGirlWins Mion]] and the rest of their friends (and considering that this is Higurashi, [[MurderTheHypotenuse it's not hard to imagine]] how ''that'' might've played out). Disaster was only averted at the last moment when a MarryThemAll solution was proposed by Rena and Satoko and accepted by the rest of the group.]] Even then, it's not an easy relationship to have; it only works because the whole group were iron-clad TrueCompanions before they were a harem, and each of the girls has enough self-esteem and love for their partners to not worry about him ever abandoning them.
* In {{Naruto}} fanon there's something called the The Clan Restoration Act which forces the last member of a important family to marry many women just to increase the clan population. This is mainly done if Kekkei Genkai or special techniques are present in the clan. This is normally applied to Naruto, but occasionally with Sasuke or Uzumaki OC's
** On occasion, they mention that females just have to have a ton of kids over a short period of time. Who has the best deal?
* The WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6345101/1/Total_Drama_Luxury_Tour Total Drama Luxury Tour]]'' is a {{Egregious}} example. It's a {{continuation}} of the third season, centered on Cody. It had many and many moments of ShipTease with the other female contestants, and the author even created a poll about which contestant you'd like to see Cody with. Then in the end [[spoiler: he gets all five girls anyways: [[OverlyLongGag Gwen, Bridgette, Heather, Sierra, and Courtney.]] And Blaineley ''also'' likes him.]] Even more, the author ''planned'' doing the same thing with Noah or Ezekiel as a sequel, although problems with the harem settup in Cody, the author not wanting to break up two of the (three) BetaCouple[=s=], and what the remaining girls are like ''mostly'' prevent it.
* Discussed in ''FanFic/RosarioToKiva'' -- as Wataru is [[spoiler:Fangire royalty]], he can legally, by the laws of his [[spoiler: people]] marry ''all'' the haremettes. In the end, [[spoiler: he only marries Moka, but not before getting Mizore pregnant like he promised her]].
* Done in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3577149/1/BeastBoys_Catgirl BeastBoy's Catgirl]], where in the end, BB has four girls who love him (Raven and three Furries). First, the guy has a date with each girl to decide whom he likes more, then he decides to make no decision at all. When he announces that, one of the girls announces [[BabiesEverAfter she is pregnant. Skip a few years, all of the girls are moms]]. None are officially married, though.
* Crossoverpairinglover's fanfiction does this, a lot. Out of all his main stories, only one of them lacks Polygamy (It instead points out one character has Polyandry and gets lampshaded in his comments). It's to a point that the characters aware of the Multiverse actively ask why it happens. Though the writer goes out of his way to explain why it happens and give it logic, as opposed to having the characters blindly accept it like most writers.
* ''[[Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub Ouran High School Host Club]]'' fanfic does this a fair amount, for people who can't decide between the numerous pairing choices offered or just can't see a way for everyone to be happy otherwise. Ranges from Tamaki/Haruhi/Kyoya {{OT3}} all the way up to [=OT7=] fare which includes ''everyone''.
* In the ''{{Disney/Frozen}}'' fanfic Fanfic/SorryAboutTheMess, this is how the love triangle between Kristoff, Anna and Elsa is resolved, as the Trolls who raised Kristoff believe in {{Polyamory}}.
* It sort of shows up in ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' fan fiction ''FanFic/JusPrimaeNoctis'', but is downplayed. [[spoiler: He doesn't appear to have anything with Kirche or Tiffania, but he officially married Henrietta, magically married Louise using the Albionese flowers, and married Tabitha in his home world. He also discusses marrying Siesta, and whether he does or not it doesn't stop them from being together.]]
* Most ''Literature/{{Hurog}}'' fanfics are about the OT3 of the fandom, Tisala, Oreg and Ward. Strictly speaking, it is Ward who gets to "marry" them both, but Tisala is often portrayed as YaoiFangirl, so everyone is happy.
* In the ''Manga/LoveHina'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2625069/1/Prince-of-PolPol Prince of PolPol]]'', Keitaro is revealed to be the heir to the island throne of [=PolPol=]. It just so happens that females outnumber males on the island, so men are permitted to take many wives, and that any female who is not blood related to the prince and has lived with him for longer than a year is considered engaged to him, with the wedding ceremony consisting of sharing the Kiss of Marriage and an apple. Upon learning that they all have a chance to marry Keitaro without taking him from his promise girls, ALL the girls proceed to perform the ceremony (although Naru has to be forced into it) and become princesses of [=PolPol=]. Nyamo later marries him as well [[spoiler: and is the first girl to have sex with him]].
* In the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' fanfic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/12000243/chapters/27152133 Beauty in Thirds]]'', if you bond with one member of a seeker trine, you bond with all of them...as Megatron learns when he bonds with Skywarp, and by extension Thundercracker and Starscream.
* In ''Fanfic/DucktalesTwentyYearsLater'', Huey is attracted to all three of Jose Caricoa's nieces, but is reluctant to take the relationships further than casual sex, as he doesn't want to have to choose between them. [[spoiler: When the girls learn this, they tell him that they don't have a problem with sharing him (at least with each other - if he tries to add any more girls to the arrangement, he will quickly know their wrath).]]
* In the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5955294/1/The-Ultimate-Mate-Hunt The Ultimate Mate Hunt]]'', Starscream goes into heat during battle, and becomes the target of affection from Megatron, Optimus, Soundwave and Skyfire. While he initially tries to escape, he realizes that they (and he himself) are the best specimens the Autobot and Decepticon armies have to offer, and that the CNA of all five of them would create an extremely powerful sparkling, so he chooses all four of them to be his mates.
* Tsukune in the fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8197929/1/R-V-Chronicles R&V Chronicles]] marries every member of his no longer unwanted harem. The story takes place in the future, where Tsukune and his wives have multiple children and live in a mansion in Hong Kong, where they perform missions all over the world.

* The 1926 comedy ''Film/HandsUp'' features Raymond Griffith falling in love with both daughters of a Nevada gold miner. Each sister offers to step aside for the other. Griffith is puzzling about how to resolve the LoveTriangle when a stagecoach arrives. A bearded man exits the stagecoach and introduces the sisters to his wife, who exits the stagecoach behind him. Then a second wife emerges, then a third. Five wives come out of the coach before the man is revealed to be Brigham Young. The film ends with Griffith leaving with both sisters in the stagecoach, which has a sign on the back reading "To Salt Lake City".
* In the final scene of ''Film/HorseFeathers'' the CollegeWidow marries Groucho, Chico and Harpo's characters simultaneously. (Zeppo is left out as his character was Groucho's son, and that would be squicky.)
* The film version of ''Film/PaintYourWagon'' has the female lead attempt this during the middle of the movie, living with both of her love interests in a polyandrous marriage. It works for a while, but at the end of the story, she's only living with one of them.

* Since men are very rare in the world of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', each man not [[SexSlave sold to the cribs]] will marry every sister in a family. This turns out happily for Jerin, since [[FirstGirlWins Odelia]], [[SexEqualsLove Ren]], and [[spoiler: later and much to his surprise "[[GoodScarsEvilScars Cira]]"]] are sisters, and he falls in love with their other grown sisters [[DoesNotLikeMen Trini]] and [[ChivalrousPervert Lylia]] after the engagement, too. He also [[FriendToAllChildren gets along well]] with and nurtures [[WifeHusbandry their younger sisters]]. This is a world where sisters are raised to be one unit, sort of; for example the country is ruled by the Queens. Jealousy ''is'' brought up in the context of the man having "favorites" but doesn't seem to be as big an issue as it would be in our world.
* In ''Literature/CourtshipRite'': Sure, six is ''supposed'' to be the maximum size for a marriage, but the maran-Kaiel aren't exactly sticklers for tradition. By the end of the book, they have enough power and influence to make their ''own'' traditions and add both the girl they've always loved ''and'' the new girl they've come to love to their five-marriage.
* In the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' novels, [[spoiler:Hamish Alexander chooses this when faced with his love for both Honor Harrington and his own wife, Emily. Initially, he and Honor were having an affair with Emily's knowledge and permission (she's very ill and physically frail, to the point where marital sex ain't happening). When Honor became pregnant, they went open. It helped that Honor was also a Grayson citizen, where polygamy is the norm.]]
* Literature/JudgeDee is pressured into marrying his Third Lady by First Lady, (it's not that he doesn't like the girl, it's that he's worried about taking advantage of her). In a latter book the Judge buys out two prostitutes to help him resolve a case. After a rocky start his three wives warm to the girls and indicate they are willing to accept them as permanent members of the menage. This time the Judge does ''not'' assent (and has to convince himself the shiny traces on the young woman's face when she hears the news is just a trick of the light).
** In still another book a young lady the Judge has taken on as a temporary assistant makes a sincere effort to seduce him. She apologizes afterward but adds forlornly; "I like you." The Judge assures her that he likes her too (though he hints it's because he reminds her of her happy childhood days with her father), and because he likes her he thinks she deserves better than being the fourth wife of a District Magistrate. Thankfully she appears very taken with a dashing captain.
* OlderThanFeudalism: In the ''Literature/{{Mahabharata}}'', our hero Arjuna marries Princess Draupadi and takes her home to his mother, who (not knowing about the wedding) tells him to share whatever he's brought with him equally amongst his four brothers. They go through with it, resulting in one of the few [[GenderInvertedTrope gender-inverted]] examples in ancient history.
* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' has a special sidestory entitled ''There is but One Ultimate Way'' where Asuna and all of Kirito's female friends basically pull him into the Underworld VR realm to ''share'' him, so that they all can tell him how they really felt about him and ''get married''.
* At the end of Diane Duane's ''The Door Into Sunset'' Herewiss, Freelorn, Segnbora, Sunspark (a fire elemental), Hasai (a dragon), Eftgan, and Eftgan's husband Wyn all enter into a group marriage. Some of them have previously been lovers in either the physical or the metaphysical sense. One of them snarks that it will be a wedding where the partcipants outnumber the spectators.
* ''Literature/TheKaneChronicles'' has a variation. Sadie Kane has the hots for two guys - Walt and [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Anubis]]. At the end of the series, Walt becomes Anubis' host, and Walt/Anubis enters a relationship with Sadie. This also saves Walt from dying of a curse.
* In Aaron Lee Yeager's ''Kharmic Rebound'' we end with [[spoiler:Gerald being forced to marry all six dangerous and violent girls in order to preserve galactic peace. However, since he has fallen in love with them and they with him by this point, and since most of the girls come from cultures where polyamory is commonplace, only Cha'Rolette voices any serious opposition to this arrangement.]]
* Happens at the end of M.A.R. Barker's ''The Man of Gold'' with [[spoiler:Hársan, Eyil, and Tlayesha]].
* In Robert Jordan's ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series, Rand al'Thor is bonded as a warder (i.e. more than married...) to all three of his love interests: Min, Elayne and Avienda. This makes for some awkward sexy times, as all three women can telepathically sense one another. [[spoiler: Of course, of all the important male characters (and all the important female characters as well except the three love interests), in the end Rand is the only one who ''doesn't'' technically get married by the end of the series.]]
* ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' -- Variant: The Magician Humphrey was a serial monogamist, but all of his wives meet up with each other in death and strike up an agreement to come BackFromTheDead, one each month, in order to spend time with him. They are okay with this because each woman genuinely loves Humphrey in her own way and he's the type of person who's only tolerable in small doses.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'':
** While Daenerys hasn't ''actually'' used this as a resolution, she has ''thought'' about using it.
** Her ancestor Aegon the First ''did'' however, although it was a bigamous arrangement with his two sister-queens.

* ''Series/InPlainSight'': When a witness is caught out as a bigamist, he seems to want both of his families to merge into one big happy one. The wives and kids do not agree. Pretty much everyone agrees that they don't want to see the dad very much, if at all, but the end of the episode shows the moms letting the kids play together.
* Parodied in a ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRvuXu1_iF0 sketch]], where due to a series of {{Accidental Proposal}}s all the men end up marrying the Registrar of Marriages.
-->'''Narrator (Terry Jones):''' ''(over a black and white picture of the five British Pythons, arm-in-arm-in-arm-in-etc.)'' Well, things turned out all right in the end. You mustn't ask ''how'', 'cause it's ''naughty.''

* The Scottish folk song "Willie's Gone Awa'" is about Willie saying goodbye to all the ladies at Melville castle before going away. When they start to fight over who he likes best and who will get to marry him when he comes home, he solves the problem by promising to marry everyone.

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]]
* According to the Literature/BookOfGenesis, Jacob works for Laban seven years to marry his beloved Rachel. When the ceremony rolls around, he finds he's married to Leah, her older sister, instead. Laban's solution: you have to work another seven years to get the other girl, too. Not only that, but both women bring their handmaids into it, too: Rachel because she's barren (for a while), and Leah because, well, she's [[TheUnfavorite the less favored wife]] and has to keep up. So Jacob winds up having four "wives" and a total of 13 children.
* Islam allows men to have up to four wives, provided he can afford to care for all of them, and actually takes care of them all equally. ([[DoubleStandard However, it specifically forbids a woman to have more than one husband at a time]], on the grounds that LineageComesFromTheFather, and therefore it's important to know whose kids are whose.)
* UsefulNotes/{{Mormonsim}} is popularly associated with polygamy. Mormon prophet Joseph Smith had around 27 wives and his successor Brigham Young had 55(!) Historically, "plural marriage" was practiced by elite Mormon men, and, though it is now disavowed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it is still practiced by members of splinter sects.
** It should also be noted that plural marriage in the Mormon faith when it was first instituted was more a case of the marriage being one that essentially assigned the Husband to take care of the new wife and her family, as many of those were widows of Mormon handcart settlers who had died on the trek west, rather than any sexual or romantic intent. it should also be noted that Polygamy is actually disavowed (by Brigham Young close to the end of his tenure as leader of the Mormon faith) in all but the Fundamentalist LDS church, which are inhabitants of Mormon Flats, Utah and Creston, British Colombia.

* In ''Theatre/AnimalCrackers'', Spaulding proposes marriage to both Mrs. Rittenhouse and Mrs. Whitehead at once:
-->'''Spaulding''': What do you say girls? Are we all going to get married?\\
'''Mrs. Whitehead''': All of us?\\
'''Spaulding''': All of us.\\
'''Mrs. Whitehead''': But that's bigamy.\\
'''Spaulding''': Yes, and it's big o' me too. It's big of all of us. Let's be big for a change. I'm sick of these conventional marriages.
* In Creator/MarkTwain's play version of ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer'', Tom can't choose between Amy Lawrence and Becky Thatcher and proposes to both of them at once.
* The stage play ''Up Against It'' (originally written as a screenplay with Music/TheBeatles in mind as the leads) ends with three of the male characters married to the same woman.
* In Creator/GilbertAndSullivan's ''Theatre/TrialByJury'', the philandering defendant proposes that it would solve their dilemma if "I marry this lady today / And I'll marry the other tomorrow!" Unfortunately, this is determined to be the crime of "[[{{Malaproper}} Burglaree]]."

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1,'' a renegade Shepard can suggest this as a solution to the Ashley/Liara (if male) or Kaidan/Liara (if female) LoveTriangle. The human is not amused, and the game treats it like you chose Liara.
* This is an option for Muslim rulers in [[CrusaderKings Crusader Kings II]]. Taking women as concubines is an option for a ruler who follows any religion other than Christianity or Islam. Concubines provide heirs just like plural wives, but the concubines themselves don't offer political alliances like wives can, and there is no prestige loss for taking a lowborn woman as a concubine.
* In the final route of ''VideoGame/DuelSaviorDestiny'', which is focused on Crea[[note]]In the original version it's a straight harem route and doesn't need elaboration[[/note]], in the epilogue [[spoiler:just before Taiga returns from beating up God]] Crea describes all the other heroines to [[spoiler:her son]] as being Taiga's lovers, much to their surprise. Nobody ever said Avatar exclusively practiced monogamy, did they?
* In ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'', a male player character can successfully complete the romance plots with both Dawn Star ''and'' [[spoiler: Silk Fox]], but the end-of-game texts subvert it; in this situation the character ends up as [[spoiler:consort to Silk Fox]] and [[spoiler:Dawn Star]] apparently goes her own way.
** This is apparently a bug as [[spoiler: the completed romance for both was supposed to play in such an ending.]]
* Parodied in ''VideoGame/NamcoHigh''; while [[MediumAwareness Davesprite]] keeps teasing the existence of such an ending, it doesn't appear to actually be there.
-->'''Davesprite''': just means i wont tell you any of the locations of the ten secret easter eggs that when gathered all together unlock the route to the perfect harem ending\\
the characters all have special outfits for that one\\
if you know what i mean\\
'''Davesprite''': haha that oughta keep those suckers busy for a while
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'':
** {{Deconstructed}} in the backstory of the Kingdom of Nohr, showing what would probably be a far more logical (if highly grim) conclusion to this. King Garon was incapable severing ties with a woman he'd once liked, and he ended up with a vast extended family of children from many different women. However, the infighting for his favor didn't result in a very happy home life, and while he once tried to be a good father to all of his children, many of his mistresses ''murdered'' one another's kids for political gain. The whole situation more-or-less only sorted itself out once most of his women were dead, and the surviving kids banded together and bonded while arranging matters amongst themselves. It ultimately left him the bitter, paranoid tyrant he is at the start of the story. [[spoiler: Or, rather, it provided a convenient cover for Anankos-using-the-already-dead-Garon's-body to neglect and abuse the princes and princesses for its own ends.]]
** It may (emphasis on ''may'') have been played considerably straighter in the backstory as well, but between [[spoiler: King Sumeragi, his first wife Queen Ikona, and his second wife Mikoto.]] [[spoiler: According to Hinoka's supports with the Avatar, Mikoto showed up one day with "a newborn baby"—the Avatar—and married Sumeragi. Problem is, Takumi and Sakura are younger than the Avatar—they couldn't have been born yet, meaning their real mother (Queen Ikona) was still alive at the time. Since Hoshido is modeled after MedievalJapan, where Emperors and highranked noblemen were allowed to have wives ''and'' mistresses (plus many capable noblewomen made careers for themselves out of being lovers to powerful men), it's likely that Sumeragi had Ikona as his official consort ''and'' Mikoto as a mix of advisor and concubine, and was savvy enough to sire children only with Ikona (plus adopting Mikoto's child) so no in-fighting would be had. As a result, when Ikona died [[RemarriedToTheMistress Mikoto married Sumeragi]] without lots of opposition from the court, and became the official Queen after his murder.]]
* This is the backstory of FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia. Zofia's previous king [[spoiler:and Celica's father]] had a nasty habit of abducting women to be his many brides, even causing a minor scandal when he married a cleric of Mila who was presumably sworn to celibacy. He's regarded in the storyline as a corrupt, decadent man whom no one misses when he eventually dies.
* The sidegame ''VideoGame/SenranKagura: Bon Appetit'' has Katsuragi try and pull this with the nearly-all-female cast. Ikargua's goal is to try and stop her.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* In ''VisualNovel/{{Nameless}}'' the [[OmegaEnding Omega Ending]] has all five (male) love interests of Eri [[spoiler: from all five different Good End timelines appear after [[BigBad Nameless]] is defeated. Also, the Big Bad may or may not be part of your new reverse harem. It's not entirely clear.]]
* One pathway in ''VisualNovel/ShojokyuuKurigeNoShiofukiShoujotachi'' involves SchoolgirlLesbian Haruna, getting together will all the girls who've crushed on her plus some others totalling a harem of eight.
* As mentioned above, while the ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' anime does NOT go this route, [[DifficultButAwesome if the player works for it]] he or she can potentially get Makoto to score ''and'' stay with both Kotonoha and Sekai.
* In ''VisualNovel/SharinNoKuni'' if you refuse to enter Sachi or Touka's routes, fail to get enough points with Hinata and finally [[spoiler:choose not to reform society with Ririko]] the girls team up and decide that since none of them could make Kenichi enter a relationship with them, they should just make him follow the path of [[EthicalSlut his father]] and have [[{{Polyamory}} multiple lovers]]. Despite being ''that'' sort of game, though, there is no sex scene for this.
* In ''VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}'', particularly the original [=H-Game/=]VisualNovel, no matter who Rin ends up with, Shin-ou reminds everyone that polygamy is legal in Shinkai.
** In the sequel/expansion ''Shuffle! Essence+'' this is explicitly the basis fot Kareha's ending (Rin agrees to marry both her and her sister Tsubomi) and more specifically Tsubomi's (she refuses to have a relationship with Rin unless he agrees to marry ALL the girls who are in love with him as well).
* Many of the hentai variety will reward the player for getting a happy ending with every girl by making it possible to get an ending where they get all the girls.
* The Yoru route for ''VisualNovel/IfMyHeartHadWings'' actually involves Aoi realising that he can't choose between Asa and Yoru... only for the two of them, being extremely close twin sisters who were both prepared to do an IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy, to suggest that he just date them both. Aoi is skeptical at first, let alone everyone else, but the situation goes forward with extremely minimal drama or jealousy.
* ''VisualNovel/UnderTheMoon'' features an ending [[spoiler:on the secret path]] in which the heroine ends up with most of the love interests as her ReverseHarem. Many of these boys have ''intensely'' jealous personalities, so some narrative contrivance is required to make this happen: [[spoiler:namely, the heroine spontaneously masters her tremendous latent magical powers '''and''' realizes that all the boys are in love with her… at the same time.]]

* In ''Webcomic/{{Fans}}'', after much teasing regarding [[BettyAndVeronica the Veronica, Alisin, and Rumy, the Betty,]] our Archie, Rikk [[{{Polyamory}} chooses them both,]] helped along in no small part by the [[BiTheWay sexual tension between the two romantic rivals themselves.]]
* A [[http://arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0414.htm version of this]] is the solution for Guenevere's affair with Lancelot in the Space Arc of ''Webcomic/ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'', and [[http://arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0811.htm seems to be leading to that]] in the Modern Arc, especially as [[spoiler: it seems Guenevere's second child (named Galahad) is Lancelot's]]. Confirmed in [[http://arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/3faces/baiy.htm this]] ''Webcomic/TheHeroOfThreeFaces''.
* ''Webcomic/MobTies'', it is suggested [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Mob_Ties/index.php?p=231247 here]].
* During the later acts of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', Jane and Jake go insane as a result of [[spoiler: Jane [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity engaging Trickster Mode]] through Caliborn and Calliope's combined [[PsychoSerum Juju]].]] The two of them are ''very'' ecstatic about the idea of a polyamorous relationship with Roxy. For her part, Roxy goes so far as to [[spoiler: ask [[TheDragon Her Imperious Condescension]] to put her back in jail to get her away from the two, only to fall to it as well]].
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': The Castle ''repeatedly'' suggests this as an alternative to Agatha choosing between Gil and Tarvek. And the castle includes ''harem quarters''. It's implied that this might be the default solution to things for the old Heterodynes: the castle also casually mentions that the Master's bedroom "only sleeps six."

* Not a marriage, but in ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs]]'' Fry falls for Colleen and moves in with her only to discover that she has four other boyfriends who all live together as one big, happy(ish) family. Fry tries to accept the situation but can't take it for long.
** And of course, the same movie has [[BizarreAlienBiology Yivo]] marry ''the entire universe'' (or at least, its biological inhabitants).
* Parodied and reversed in the ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'' episode "Trio's Company" which ends with Gigi marrying Harvey, Peanut, Phil, her friends Vince and Terry, and a bear. Of course, Gigi has a habit of [[ReallyGetsAround flirting/sleeping with every man she comes across]]… except [[ButtMonkey Harvey.]]
* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "The Front": An ImagineSpot shows Grandpa Simpson as a Western showgirl, preventing a gunfight between two cowboys by proclaiming, "You can ''both'' marry me!"
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' movie "How I Spent My Summer Vacation," Buster and Babs encounter a family of alligators living on a Louisiana plantation. The rotund father explains that all 3 of his (equally corpulent) daughters wish to marry Buster.
-->''Buster:'' I can't marry all of them! That's bigamy!\\
''Daddy Gator:'' Naw, son, that's [[IncrediblyLamePun big of ME]]!
