'''Basic Trope''': A character's family and/or friends harm them because of HonorBeforeReason.
* '''Straight''': AerithAndBob are together, but Aerith's [[ParentalMarriageVeto parents don't approve of Bob]]. They [[GirlInTheTower lock her up in a tower guarded by a fierce dragon]], just so she'll never see him again.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Aerith's [[KnightTemplarParent parents]] actually kill her and/or Bob.
** Aerith's parents consider her DefiledForever for being raped, so they [[{{Squick}} join the rapists]].
** When Aerith's parents find out that she wants to refuse an ArrangedMarriage, they lock her up in a [[TortureCellar cellar]], [[DeniedFoodAsPunishment starve her]], [[ATasteOfTheLash whip her]], beat her, wound her, and [[ParentalIncest rape her]] until she [[OffingTheOffspring either dies]] or [[TwoPlusTortureEqualsFive changes her mind]].
** Aerith breaks some minor promise, which overall is seen by everybody as a good thing because not doing it otherwise would have been much more abominable (such as, for example, telling the whereabouts of a runaway multiple rapist after being sworn not to say). Aerith's parents, however, see the breaking of the promise as an act abominable enough on its own that killing her (their own, and sole, daughter) in the goriest fashion possible is the best retribution they can think of.
* '''Downplayed''':
** AerithAndBob are together, but Aerith's [[ParentalMarriageVeto parents don't approve of Bob]]. [[BreakThemByTalking They lecture her, saying some rather unnecessarily hurtful things]], and finish their rant by telling her [[YouAreGrounded she's grounded]].
** Aerith is [[IHaveNoSon disowned and kicked out of her home]].
* '''Justified''':
** Aerith is living in NoWomansLand, and considered the property of her father, rather than a real person with the right to decide whom she marries or sleeps with.
** Aerith is part of a BigScrewedUpFamily.
** If Aerith's parents choose not to punish her, their society will kill them ([[ConvictedByPublicOpinion or at least their social cred]]) as well as her(s) "[[VillainByProxyFallacy for tolerating]] [[AccompliceByInaction her indecency]]". They had to choose LesserOfTwoEvils. ([[FalseDichotomy Couldn't they]] TakeAThirdOption and let her go, then say everyone that she fled?)
* '''Inverted''':
** Rather than harm Aerith, [[KnightTemplarParent her parents]] kill or injure Bob.
** Aerith is rewarded (not punished) for being involved with Bob. (See also MyGirlIsASlut.)
** Aerith is killed for being a PuritySue.
* '''Subverted''': Aerith's parents discourage her from seeing Bob again but take no further action...
* '''Double Subverted''': ...until she defies them in public, after which they see no choice but to kill her.
* '''Parodied''': Aerith [[HoldingHands holds a boy's hand]] and her parents are so ashamed they whack her with a feather stuffed pillow.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Sometimes Aerith is punished severely for doing things or seeing people her parents don't like, other times she gets off with barely a slap on the wrist.
* '''Averted''':
** Aerith has GoodParents that treat her well, even when she does/says/wears things or dates people they don't approve of.
** Aerith's parents [[HandsOffParenting don't give a damn]] what (or whom) she does or doesn't do. This is one of the few cases when ParentalNeglect is better than too much attention from them.
** Aerith is ConvenientlyAnOrphan and [[LonelyRichKid an only child]] of a rich family that made it into becoming an adult, so no one is able to mess with her life.
* '''Enforced''':
** [[NoWomansLand The setting of the story]] [[DeliberateValuesDissonance demands it]].
** HonorBeforeReason
* '''Lampshaded''': "In losing her, we have lost a whore."
* '''Invoked''': Aerith's parents purposefully set up the affair so they have an excuse to punish her.
* '''Exploited''': Someone with a grudge against Aerith [[BlatantLies tells her parents]] that she [[MyGirlIsNotASlut has been unchaste]] outside of marriage.
* '''Defied''':
** Aerith's parents [[KnowWhenToFoldEm realize]] that she is a person, and that she may do things they don't approve of. If religion is the issue, they pray to the PowersThatBe for her forgiveness, and [[BeYourself they accept her as she is]].
** Bob comes to her rescue and he and Aerith fight back against the abuse. [[FireForgedFriends Their bonds strengthened]] [[NiceJobFixingItVillain because of that]].
* '''Discussed''': "Did you hear Aerith dating that poor guy Bob? I hope her parents won't be too harsh to her for that..."
* '''Conversed''': "Good thing we live in the 21st century! If we lived, say, three or four centuries back, like in that story, one of us might've been beaten or even murdered for dating each other."
* '''Deconstructed''':
** This is a form of DomesticAbuse; Aerith's rights are being violated in the name of [[ValuesDissonance family honor]].
** When her parents decide to kill her for "ruining their family's honor", Aerith eventually [[TheDogBitesBack snaps and lashes out at them]], possibly even going as far as turning into a SelfMadeOrphan.
* '''Played For Laughs''': Aerith's parents punish her for dating Bob... by [[{{Unishment}} taking away all her fancy dresses]] so that she has nothing but a set of ImpossiblyTackyClothes (or even [[ShamefulStrip her natural "costume"]], [[NakedPeopleAreFunny that is, her own skin]]) to wear while out, hoping that she'd be too ashamed to meet Bob again.
* '''Played For Drama''':
** Being abused is scary enough, the fact that Aerith's parents [[ObliviouslyEvil think that they are in the right]], makes it even more horrifying.
** Bob, upon learning of this, decides that Aerith's entire society [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide needs its "honor" restored]], and sets out on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge that ends up as a revolution.
* '''Plot Foundation''' (combined with Rule of Drama UpToEleven): Aerith was a cheerful young girl who loved her family. However, she learned the hard way that her feelings are one-sided when she finds herself on the receiving end of an attempt to OffingTheOffspring for dating a boy from a wrong family because they thought it would damage the rep of their family. [[CorneredRattlesnake Desperate for her life]], [[SelfMadeOrphan she kills the parents]] and is soon arrested and sentenced to a long prison term for the CrimeOfSelfDefense. She comes out of the prison a [[BrokenBird bitter, roguish, antisocial shadow of her former persona]]. Now there are (usually) two ways to pick from: a) become [[HadToComeToPrisonToBeACrook a full-on criminal]] with no remorse or pity towards members of their society and a ''massive'' FreudianExcuse; or b) [[MiseryBuildsCharacter overcome her troubles]], [[MisfitMobilizationMoment mobilize her fellow women]] to stand up for their rights and grow into [[RebelLeader a head of a rebellion against the ultra-patriarchal society]] that tears it down and sets up a much more just one.
Hey Aerith, you were at [[HonorRelatedAbuse the main page]] again?? You know how you are ruining our family's credit? Next time I see you there, there'll be a murder!
