* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob is like a father to Alice. As she gets older people start to suspect that he has a romantic interest in her, and is raising her to be the ideal wife. When confronted w/ this Bob denies it, and seems squicked out by the idea. Then it turns out he has been raising her to be the ideal wife for his son, Charlie (who is 7 years younger than Alice).
* '''Averted''': Bob does not view Alice as anything more than a child and makes no advances towards her.
* '''Enforced''': The authors either lived in an earlier time [[ValuesDissonance where this was perfectly acceptable]] or wish to capture the feel of such an era [[DeliberateValuesDissonance as accurately as possible]]

* '''Invoked''': Bob takes up a father role for Alice specifically so that when she grows up, she'll want to marry him.
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': "Marry her? You're talking about my daughter here! Of course, we're not related by blood, but still!"

* '''Conversed''': "Wait, so the hero is raising the girl so she can be his lover later? That's...uh..."
