* ''{{Moonlighting}}'': Addison's father was all set to marry a younger woman, who Addison recognizes instantly as he had engaged in some extremely intense sex with her some years earlier. Finally confronting her, she tells of her troubled past in which she slept with so many men that she didn't even remember their faces (including his). And that Addison's father had won her over not only by ''not'' sleeping with her, but treating her like a lady. Shamed and guilt-ridden, Addison gives the marriage his blessing.
* In ''TheGeorgeLopezShow'', Ernie is dating a woman who has a history of alcohol abuse and gambling problems. Angie tells George that the woman is pregnant, but not sure who the father is. Unfortunately, she tells Ernie it's his.

* In ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'', Robert Barone is still not being allowed to forget that his first wife Joanne was formerly a "dancer" in Atlantic City. His [[JewishMother mother]] brings this up practically every time her name is mentioned.
* ''DharmaAndGreg'' has a variant: while attending the wedding of Kitty's housekeeper, Dharma and Greg run into her now-married niece, whom Greg supposedly lost his virginity to as a teenager. This information reaches her husband, who's angry because she told him that she was a virgin on her wedding night. Eventually Greg confesses that the two ''almost'' had sex, but he, er, [[JizzedInMyPants finished rather early]]. Greg explains this to the Spanish-speaking husband ([[HilarityEnsues the priest offers to translate]]), who finds it hilarious.

\n* The song "The Flower of the Plateau" from Music/{{mothy}}'s Franchise/EvilliousChronicles franchise; the bride, Mikulia, was previously a prostitute. In a variant of this trope, it's two outsiders (her old handler and her abandoned son) who come and threaten to reveal her past. [[spoiler:So she kills them.]]

Often, the prospective groom already knows, and the episode ends with AnAesop about tolerance...usually, going [[BrokenAesop directly against]] the attitude the episode took to Such Things up to that point.

A friend, family member, or employer brings his fiancée to the family house. One of the cast knows the woman already, revealing that she was a [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold hooker]]/[[YouCanLeaveYourHatOn stripper]]/{{transsexual}}. Family debates on whether the groom-to-be should be told. HilarityEnsues, except not.

* On ''Series/{{Angel}},'' Doyle's ex-wife visits with her new fiancé, who turns out to be a demon. The ex-wife is informed, but already knew. In this case, it's PlayedForDrama in a different way--Doyle is half-demon himself and assumed that this was why his ex-wife left him, but this proves that no, it was ''his'' reaction to the news that ultimately ruined their marriage. (Oh, and also, [[spoiler:the new beau wants to eat Doyle as per his species' tradition, though the ex-wife doesn't know that part]]).

[[AC:{{Music}}]]
* The George Jones song "She's The Rock" is about a guy who's married to a woman with a shady past. He not only knows about it, but he forgives her for it and defends her to people who bring it up.


[[AC:{{Western Animation}}]]
* ''Series/SouthPark:'' In the episode "The Succubus", the womanizing Chef has finally found his [[OneTrueLove one and only]]...but, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as the episode title suggests,]] she has a secret. The boys know, [[TheCassandra but no one listens,]] until the actual ceremony is underway and Veronica is forced to reveal her true nature.

* In ''YouAgain'', Marni realizes her brother is about to marry the AlphaBitch who made her life miserable in high school.
