This evening a relative related a story he had heard during a lecture this Shabbos.
A young man approached Rav Kanievsky because he was having a hard time with shidduchm. The young women that he had met couldn't get past the cuts on his face.
The Rav listened attentively to the young man and advised him that the next time the issue came up, he should relate the story behind his cuts to the young woman.
And so, a shidduch was suggested and the young man was asked what had happened to his face.
He explained that he had been walking in Jerusalem when he noticed an Arab approaching a family. He immediately ran to help them out. The Arab brandished a knife and stabbed the young man as he tried to fend him off.
Upon hearing the story, the young woman exclaimed that it had been her family who had been attacked and she had been searching for her young savior for a while, to no avail.
Needless to say, the shidduch went through.
