* The relationship between protagonists Don and Denise in ''Literature/WeCantRewind'' works out something like this, although she's not so much "defiled" in his eyes as she is a BrokenBird from being molested and impregnated as a preteen, and the marriage is more for love and forging a single wholesome family from two broken ones than restoring any of the long-lost "honor" she ever had to her. What makes it this trope is that the widower Don is basically extending ''his'' code of honor to her in wanting to [[LetsWaitAWhile get properly married before getting busy with her]], so to speak.

Note that thanks to the good old DoubleStandard, men typically [[AManIsNotAVirgin do not suffer the same stigma]] if suspected of having sex before marriage. Therefore, the proposer is basically AlwaysMale, while the proposee is basically AlwaysFemale.

* A variation in ''Literature/EvilUnderTheSun'': Kenneth Marshall, described as "one of those incurably chivalrous men", is said to have serially rescued two women from infamy by marrying them. A variation in that the reason for the women's ignominy was something other than sex.

In some societies, a [[AlwaysFemale woman's]] sexual reputation is a very important thing. As she is [[NatureAdoresAVirgin expected to be a virgin]] on her wedding night, having sex before marriage (especially with a man other than the one she marries) is just about the most scandalous thing she can do. Not only will she have to suffer the disapproval of those around her, but it will [[DefiledForever seriously lower her chance of getting an offer of marriage in the future.]] In settings where women are economically dependent on their husbands and may not be educated, this could all but condemn her to a life as a beggar or [[TheOldestProfession a prostitute]]. She might even be at risk of being [[HonorRelatedAbuse harmed or killed by her family or society]]. If she already has a fiancé, he would be considered [[MyGirlIsNotASlut justified in breaking off the engagement.]] The stigma is so bad that if a woman is [[MaliciousSlander even suspected]] of having had sex with a man, due to being alone with him for an extended length of time--typically overnight (there is no such thing as InnocentCohabitation in the mind of society)--she will still have to suffer the consequences. The only thing that can avert this is for her to get married as quickly as possible.
