Scott and Jean's Marriage
I don't want to accidentally plagiarize anyone, so I'll note that I read about this on Comics Should Be Good and you can read a more in-depth version of it at that link. But the long and short of it is that there had been plans for Cyclops and Jean Grey to get married as far back as 1990, but they kept getting put off or cancelled by creators shifting books, leaving books, and higher-ups not wanting it to happen. However, when Bob Harras learned that X-Men: The Animated Series was planning a similar storyline, he used that to convince Marvel editor-in-chief Tom DeFalco to have it happen in comics as well and coincide with the show. And it did, in the summer of 1993.
