* On ''Series/MadMen'', Bob Benton offers to marry Joan Harris in part because her unmarried status means that she is getting less respect at work, despite being one of the senior partners, and in part so that she can avoid the stigma of being a single mother. (He also wants to avoid questions about his sexuality.) She turns him down, not wanting to get stuck in another unhappy marriage.

* In the {{Bible}}, the young girl Miriam (Mary) is visited by an angel and told to rejoice, as she is now pregnant. Her fiance Joseph accepts her anyway and marries her so that no shame falls on her. He then brings up her firstborn child as his own. (Zigzagged a bit because they were already engaged at the time, but Joseph mentally re-committed to marry her in order to save her reputation.)

to:

* 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.
