Luke 1:26-38 and Matthew 1:18-14
In Matthew we find the continuation of the events that start with an angel appearing to Mary.
All was not well in the home of Joseph and Mary. In fact, Matthew makes it very clear that there was a lot of tension. Joseph had never heard of a virgin birth before and although his heart might have told him that Mary was telling the truth, his head was saying something else. Common sense told him to get rid of Mary and if not for the intervention of an angel, Joseph would have done so.
