** Littlefinger seems to be happy with Lysa Tully, as he can't have her sister Catelyn [[spoiler: until he pushes Lysa out of the Eyrie. Keep in mind that the Eyrie sits atop one of the highest mountains of the Vale of Arryn]]. Later on he decides [[spoiler:to go after the far more disturbing "[[LoveFatherLoveSon Settle for Daughter]]" with Catelyn's daughter Sansa. Made even squick-ier by the fact that Sansa is posing as ''his'' daughter, under the false name Alayne Stone, by that point]]

* Maybe not ''settling'', exactly, but Music/TheLovinSpoonful's "Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind".
-->Sometimes you really dig a girl, the moment you kissed her, and then you get distracted by her older sister
-->When in walks her father and takes you in line, and says "You better go home, son, and make up your mind."

May overlap with GiveTheBabyAFather, especially in historical settings; marrying the woman pregnant with your brother's child not only protects her from the scandal but makes the child legally part of the family.
