This trope could be the result of societal expectations. Men are expected to have dose of dread before a wedding, stereotypically speaking. It's supposed to be more shocking when it's the woman who backs out to be free and single, or run away with another man. Since this offers zero comfort to the poor schlub who just got dumped in front of his family and friends on ''his'' big day, writers are careful [[DisposableFiance not to develop the would-be groom too much]]--or they flat-out make him the villain--to keep audiences from sympathizing with him and calling her out on her recklessness.

recklessness. This trope is particularly common if the character (or her social/cultural background) cares more about getting married than whether or not the relationship is marriage material in the first place. She runs away when she realizes this is absolutely not what she wants.

* In FanFic/TheMansionverse's version of Ride/PhantomManor's backstory, the Phantom made Melanie believe this was the case of her lover Jonathan Jake. In truth, the Phantom had actually murdered him. This is a popular interpretation of Phantom Manor's story, which cropped up in media unrelated to the Mansionverse as well.
