** The Mako/Asami/Korra love triangle throughout seasons 1 and 2 began by depicting Korra as being in the right for persuing Mako while he was dating Asami, but quickly deconstructed it, as all three ended up hurt and with friendships severely damaged.

*** The same episode also reveals that Linda Memari is either lesbian or bisexual, as she is clearly attracted to Francine. Her husband Bob isn't particularly fond of her sleeping with women (especially since [[GirlOnGirlIsHot she doesn't allow him to watch]]), and it's hinted that their marriage is pretty sexless.

* On ''TheSimpsons'', the wear and tear of raising eight children erodes Apu and Manjula's marriage to the point where Manjula won't let her husband so much as touch her. A desperate Apu is courted by a fetching Squishee delivery girl, and after the ensuing affair, Manjula pressures Apu to go to ridiculous lengths (as in, ''eating a light bulb'') to restore the same cold, lifeless relationship that drove him to another woman in the first place. The fact that the two of them were an ArrangedMarriage is implied to have been a factor.
** There was also an episode where Bart and Milhouse make it look like Marge is having an affair with Kirk. However, when Homer confronts Marge on it, Marge throws Homer out of the house, because he continued to press in spite of her repeated denials.
** One episode also has a new female employee being hired at the power plant, who is incredibly attractive and has the exact same likes as Homer. He starts to feel incredibly uneasy next to her, afraid of a workplace romance. Then they're sent to a conference and put up at the same hotel room. As they enter the room, Homer visibly sags. She asks him what's wrong, and he (in a sad voice) tells her that they're probably going to have sex now. She asks him if that would be so bad, clearing not opposed to the idea. The episode pulls a bait-and-switch and makes it seem as if Homer is indeed sleeping with her, only to pull back the camera and reveal that he brought Marge to the hotel instead. Homer may be an unthinking, careless jerk, but at least he would never cheat on Marge.

* ''Series/TheGoodWife'' opens with Alicia Florrick suffering the backlash, following the imprisonment of her husband Peter for corruption during his time as a DA. The corruption involved him having an affair with several interns (not at the same time). Despite the affairs, Alicia does not divorce him but starts her legal career at Stern, Lockhart & Gardner thanks to her being an acquaintance of Will Gardner, one of the name partners. After some time, Peter manages to appeal the charges and get them dropped, and their relationship appears to be improving, until Alicia finds out that her best friend Kalinda slept with Peter many years ago. She kicks Peter out and starts an affair with Will. However, after some time, she ends the affair and gets back with Peter. Her relationship with Will sours even more after she leads several associates to leave the firm to start their own. Then [[spoiler:Will is accidentally killed by a client of his]], and Alicia suddenly realizes that she's done with Peter, claiming that she has never truly forgiven him for the original affairs. When Peter points out that they meant nothing to him, Alicia counters that her affair ''did'' mean something. They agree to stay officially married for their respective careers but have totally separate private lives, except where their children are concerned and for any public appearances. Alicia then toys with the idea of starting a relationship with a former ADA Finn Polmar, while Peter starts a romantic affair with a woman on his staff, only to break it off when the affair comes to light.

Alicia then toys with the idea of starting a relationship with a former ADA Finn Polmar, while Peter starts a romantic affair with a woman on his staff, only to break it off when the affair comes to light. Alicia eventually starts another affair with Jason, a private investigator, who work for her part-time. When Peter finds him at Alicia's apartment, he seems ready to punch him, but Jason ends up leaving and telling Alicia he's uncomfortable with this arrangement. She tries to play it off as a casual sex-only relationship (she even sleeps with Peter once or twice, while claiming it's nothing more than casual sex and claims it's even better when love isn't a factor), but it's clear she likes Jason as more than that. The GrandFinale has Alicia struggle with trying to decide between the men in her life, even having mental conversations with Will, telling him that he's her OneTruePairing. [[spoiler:The episode leaves it open whether she stays with Peter or leaves with Jason]].

** The GrandFinale also suggests that Diane's husband may have cheated on her, although we never find out the truth. She ends up slapping Alicia for bringing it up in court, although it's not made clear if that was for bringing the affair to light or for straining her marriage by ruining her husband's reputation.

** In later seasons, the Meredith-Derek marriage is starting to crack, with Derek wanting to follow his career to Washington, D.C., to work for the President and Meredith insisting on staying in Seattle. Derek ends up staying, but, eventually, Meredith admits that she can't deal with the guilt that Derek keeps trying to saddle her with (i.e. sacrificing his career for her) and angrily tells him to accept the offer and go. He does, but they reconcile over the phone and agree to try to make their long-distance relationship work. As it turns out, it doesn't work too well, as Meredith realizes that she's perfectly fine on her own (even raising 2 kids). One day she calls Derek, only to have a woman pick up the phone. The next day, Derek flies into Seattle to explain. Meredith assumes that the woman on the phone is the new "Meredith", as Derek has done this before. In fact, the woman does try to come on to Derek, only for him to realize that he still wants his marriage to work.

** There is also Alex's on-and-off affair with a married woman, whom he names Ava (she had temporary amnesia at the time). After discovering that she's married, Alex isn't sure he wants the affair to continue, but then she remembers that she was trying to escape a loveless marriage at the time. She seems to go back to her husband, but comes back to Alex some time later. Eventually, though, [[spoiler:he discovers that she is mentally ill and has no choice but to commit her]].

** There's also the whole [[spoiler:George]] and [[spoiler:Izzie]] situation. From the beginning, [[spoiler:George]] is portrayed as having the hots for Meredith... but this quickly ends after they have a terrible one-night stand (during which she bursts into tears), completely putting him off her. He then starts going out with [[spoiler:Callie Torres]], but this ends when she [[spoiler:sleeps with Mark]]. Then [[spoiler:George's father dies]], and the two end up having a quickie wedding in Vegas. Almost immediately, he realizes it was a huge mistake and ends up in a drunken one-night stand with [[spoiler:Izzie]], which turns out to be his OneTruePairing. A few episodes later, he tells his wife, and she ends up forgiving him because of the vows... only for him to force her to end the marriage. Even then, the two have trouble starting off due to, apparently, no chemistry between them. A few seasons later, [[spoiler:George dies, and Izzie gets cancer]]. Ouch.

But, by that point, Alex realizes that he deserves better and asks her to leave]].
