--> '''Stanley''': Who giveth this woman? "This woman." But she's not a woman. She's still a child. And she's leaving us. What's it going to be like to come home and not find her? Not to hear her voice calling "Hi, Pops" as I come in? I suddenly realized what I was doing. I was giving up Kay. Something inside me began to hurt.

* In Season 5 of ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Theon Greyjoy gives away Sansa Stark. Subverted in that it's a sadistic game arranged by her betrothed, Ramsey Bolton. Theon was involved in the (apparent) deaths of the Starks during the War of the Five Kings, so he is the last person she wants to give her away.

to:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** In season 3, King Joffrey gives away Sansa Stark to his uncle Tyrion Lannister. Sansa is by that point a captive in King's Landing forced into an ArrangedMarriage, and because both her father is dead (at Joffrey's hands, no less) and no other Stark members are in the capital, it falls to Joffrey as "father of the realm" to carry out this duty.
