Added DiffLines:

* CompeteForTheMaidensHand: Two or more suitors engage in some sort of contest to win a noble, royal or otherwise important woman as their prize.


Added DiffLines:

* EngagementChallenge: A set of rules, tests or tasks that one must meet in order to prove worthy of a spouse as their prize. The prize is usually a woman, and the challenge is either imposed by the her parents, gender customs or some other group other than the woman herself. Part of the drama involved is that her feelings are irrelevant--she will be forced to both reject a suitor she loves if they fail, and to accept one she hates if they succeed. Can be gender-inverted, but not commonly.

* AllGaysArePromiscuous: The logic of this trope is that gay men are still ''men'', and thus still only want sex, but "marriage" is only for straight couples. Thus, gay men (and sometimes women) have "free reign" to act as promiscuously as they dare.
