Were they in a unique position? Or could others get in the same trouble they did? Did they break a specific law? If so: by having sex? By getting pregnant? Would they have gotten in trouble if it had happened: at a different time? In a different place in the same country?

Did the law forbid sex during: certain days? A period of time? Forever - but it got repealed later? Is a holiday relevant? A religious holiday? A religious practice? Did the law affect all people in the country? Relevant what the purpose of the law was? Relevant what form of government the country had? Is a change in government relevant?

Were all people in the area forbidden to have sex during this period? Were all who had children 9 months later in trouble? Is a religious belief relevant? A superstition? Vanity? Modesty? Respect?
Coronation of: king? Queen? Emperor?

I think you've just about got it.

*SPOILER ALERT*
Bob's parents lived in Swaziland.After the death of the king,there is a 90-day period of mourning where sex is prohibited as a mark of respect.It is punishable by a beating.Therefore when Bob arrived on time and healthy,it would be obvious from the length of pregnancy that he had been conceived within the forbidden time.
Bob's very presence provided incontrovertible evidence of their wrongdoing and got them into trouble
