Is the second panel of the trope image REALLY necessary? I think that the trope could be illustrated more succinctly with only the first panel.

it occurs to me that there seem to be two main variants of this trope, and the article might be improved by making that clear: 1) Where defeating her is a prerequisite to marriage, but does NOT require marriage (for instance, in the A Song of Ice and Fire example, Ygritte wasn't required to marry Jo by wildling custom, it is just that defeating her would be a prerequisite. (basically "You must defeat me before I will consider marriage") 2) Where defeating her means she doesn't have a choice but to marry you (basically "If you defeat me, I'll marry you"- the difference being that if you win, then you are engaged, as opposed to the first type, where it was merely a prerequisite)
