So what exactly is the "line" of this trope? Somewhere between a day and a week?
I would say a week.
Removed this, becuase I don't think it really fits the trope. Those suitors wanted to marry her because of her looks, but they weren't out questing or dying for her honor. They were convinced to swear oaths to protect whichever of them was chosen as her husband, because each hoped he'd be the one chosen. They went to war for those oaths, not for her or Menelaus' honor.
I always call this the "inner steed" after the white knight. Your inner steed rides you to knightly bullshit if you aren't careful about how you steer.
