** For over a decade prior to the start of the series, Jack was technically married, although he and his wife had been separated for years. His wife had no problems with him dating a successive string of bimbos, but attacked Liz in a jealous rage when she claimed Jack had proposed to her, since Liz could satisfy Jack emotionally as well as physically. They eventually finalise their divorce a few episodes later, despite them still having feelings for each other.

* Played with in ''Series/ThirtyRock'', while Jack's wife Avery is being held in North Korea, he kisses and comes very close to cheating on her with his mother-in-law, who is [[MayDecemberRomance closer to his age]] and with whom he shares an intense mutual attraction. Meanwhile, Avery falls in love with and has an emotional affair with a fellow prisoner. After Avery returns home she and Jack struggle to hold their marriage together, but they eventually admit that they don't love each other anymore and were just staying married out of stubbornness, and amicably agree to divorce and evenly split custody of their daughter.
** Jack's [[spoiler:step-]]father was a serial philanderer who would frequently disappear for years on end and have strings of affairs. When Jack learns that his mother's new boyfriend at her retirement community is also married, he assumes that history is repeating itself and gives the guy the CallingTheOldManOut speech he had always wanted to give his dad. However, his mom shuts him down and reveals that she knows he's married and orders him to stay out of her personal life. The two of them are not depicted as either good or bad for this, it's just depicted as something that has happened and which Jack needs to accept.
** It is also revealed that Jack's [spoiler:biological father]] was [[spoiler:a college student his mother had an affair with]]. Again, the show makes no moral judgement on way or another.

* In Creator/WilliamHKeithJr's ''Heritage Trilogy'', Dr. David Alexander keeps having extramarital affairs with his female colleagues. On the other hand, it's stated that social mores have changed to the point where marriage isn't treated as something monolithic. In fact, there are many different kinds of marriages, such as whole groups of people being married to one another. Even walking around naked isn't that much of a taboo anymore, as long as it's in the company of close friends. Still, there are many holdouts from the more strict religions, who cling to the old marital traditions. Unfortunately for Alexander, his wife is one of them. He doesn't want to stay married to her and has brought up divorce multiple times, but she manages to change topics every time, refusing to even contemplate it due to her very religious upbringing. In her mind, marriage is eternal. He would rather part on good terms, knowing that his disgust with his wife's membership in an AncientAstronaut cult is likely to grow into outright hatred. In turn, his wife knows he's cheating on her (his own fault for using an [[ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish easily-guessable password]]) and even figures that, if she shows proof in court, she'd get half of their assets (she's get the same if he simply left her). She doesn't partly because of her believes in marriage and partly because David is her source of knowledge about the alien artifacts on Mars and Luna, which her cultist friends use to justify their beliefs.

* In the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series, Hamish Alexander is married to the disabled Emily Alexander, who is practically seen as a saint by the population of Manticore. He visits prostitutes to satisfy his needs, and both his wife and society at large consider this to be perfectly acceptable. However, when he later falls in love with Honor, the rumors that they're having an affair (in truth, these are slander on the Government's part that turn out to be AccidentallyAccurate) are horribly scandalous. [[spoiler: Emily, upon realizing that they're actually in love, responds first by getting angry, then dealing with the facts on the ground and accepting their affair, and later taking a hint from Honor's Grayson society and setting up an ExoticExtendedMarriage.]]

* "ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}" has recently been going through this with his wife Shiklah. At first, they had an OpenRelationship in that both had free-pass lists of people who were allowed "invitations." But Shiklah started "extending her guess list" as Deadpool put it after catching her in bed with Werewolf by Night, whom he shoots. Shortly after, another female creature is revealed to have been in the bed as well. A fight ensues between Shiklah and Deadppol, as they argue about their marriage. Deadpool has not completely been a saint. He made out with his ex, Death, on one occasion, which angered Shiklah, who tells him to sleep in the "nail room" that night because he had "Death Breath."
** Recent comics have had Deadpool and Rogue seemingly falling for one another, during the rough patch in his marriage. A big thing was Deadpool trusting her enough to let her see who his daughter is, and where she lives. And he wants Rogue to watch over her, if she becomes a mutant. They later have a moment after Rogue, who was being mind-controlled at the time, badly beats Deadpool, who even with his healing factor, still had to use a cane. She goes to him to ask if he hates her. He quickly tells her that he doesn't, and he doesn't want her to feel bad over him. Rogue kisses him, which heals him, and even restores his original face. Deadpool worries about her getting his memories, feeling she just likes him because she doesn't really know him. Rogue kisses him again, seeing flashes of bad memories. But she tells Deadpool that she can handle it, and that him being in her head is a relief after Red Skull. Deadpool says that's the most romantic thing someone has said to him, before they share a longer kiss in one another's arms. Deadpool is still very much married.

* Zig-zagged in ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' with Dru Hightower who was caught cheating during the engagement. On one hand, he had [[ExoticExtendedMarriage several wives-to-be]], so he couldn't have done it for the variety. Then again, it was an arranged marriage, and it is implied he wasn't asked. He did cheat with several servants, though, probably for pure lust, and could have infected his wives with an STD. Also, his sisters had to pay back his "brother's price" when his cheating was discovered. On the other hand, his wives-to-be were allegedly very ugly. The character who tells Jerin about the scandal is rather undecided on what to think of the man, but there is some SlutShaming involved.

* This trope makes a surprise appearance in Daphne du Maurier's ''Literature/{{Rebecca}}'', in which [[spoiler:we find out that the titular Rebecca was, rather than the lovely and kind-hearted perfect wife her successor assumed her to be, a lying, manipulative, cruel sociopath who cheated on her husband Maxim with a series of lovers- and was not even really in love with them either. Maxim, meanwhile, is shown putting up with this until Rebecca actually ''intentionally provokes him into shooting her'' (because she has cancer and no way of treating it, and is apparently too afraid of committing actual suicide; as well as the fact that this makes him a murderer: her ultimate attack on him). She is, in fact, so awful that the heroine, Maxim's second wife, is ''glad'' he shot Rebecca, and the reader's sympathies are directed toward Maxim in spite of the murder]]. We also find out that [[spoiler:Rebecca seduced Giles, Maxim's brother-in-law. Giles' wife (Maxim's sister) Beatrice either knows or strongly suspects this and avoids further visits with her brother for that reason. She and Giles still seem to get along well though, and the second wife at one point feels inferior because the two have a "good marriage".]]

* ZigZagged in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. On the "good" hand, Eddard Stark is [[SwitchingPOV a protagonist]] and he and his wife Catelyn were "on a break" in the sense that he was away at war for more than a year; Catelyn acknowledges that [[AllMenArePerverts he has needs]] and doesn't begrudge him finding comfort in some other arms. On the "bad" hand, Catelyn is [[SwitchingPOV also a protagonist]] and fears she might be Ned's SecondLove, feeling that perhaps Ned loves another woman more, as Ned returns home from the war with his illegitimate infant son, [[HeroicBastard Jon Snow]] ([[SwitchingPOV ALSO a protagonist]]), who Ned fathered out of wedlock. Ned insists on raising Jon alongside his and Catelyn's trueborn children as one of his sons and Catelyn feels she is living in the shadow of Ned's first love (who she believes is Jon's mother), as she concludes Ned must have loved Jon's mother deeply upon observing Ned's fierce protectiveness of Jon. Catelyn comes off as TheResenter and their situation is not made better when the one time she asks Ned about Jon's mother, Ned shuts her down. [[spoiler: And then there are the repeated hints and fan theories that Ned is Jon's uncle with Jon being the biological son of Ned's sister Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. It is theorized that Ned passed Jon off as his own illegitimate child, raising and loving him as one of his children, to protect Jon from Robert Baratheon's fatal wrath and possibly to protect the child from what would be, at best, a life as a political pawn, surrounded by intrigue or constant risk of assassination (which Robert, who had Rhaegar's other children killed, would likely want to do to Jon if he found out Jon's true parentage).]]
** ZigZagged again in the marriage of King Robert and Cersei. Any royal adultery is Bad Adultery and when the king does it, it results in scandal and illegitimate children that can threaten the stability of the realm. When the queen does it, it's treason. However, Robert and Cersei's marriage is miserable and it's hard to blame either of them for seeking solace elsewhere. Then again, Robert is depicted as fickle and careless with his romantic affections, willing to beget bastard-born children and make promises to their mothers, only to forget most of them in the morning (with the exceptions of Mya Stone and Edric Storm). Cersei at least loves and is committed to her lover but [[spoiler: her love is her ''brother'' Jaime, which makes it bad adultery again -- ''except'' that their relationship is actually pretty sympathetic, aside from the whole incestuous thing.]]

** A matter of contention for fans of the show was the differing treatment of the affairs Trapper and Henry had compared with Frank's. Trapper's affairs were never justified in the slightest, which made him less sympathetic, but Henry seemed to be in a single long-term affair with one nurse. Which he ended (apparently offscreen, the nurse simply vanished) upon getting a taste of his own medicine, via a guilty letter from his wife that clearly caused him distress. Frank's affair was treated as him being too much of a greedy coward to divorce his wife for Margaret, whom he clearly felt at least something for, as he had a mental breakdown upon her getting married.
* ''Series/OnceUponATime'' also features a sort of mixed take on the whole trope between ''RealLife'' Mary Margret Blachard and David Nolan. While it's most likely meant to be the Good Adultery since the two are really Literature/SnowWhite and Prince Charming, there are elements of Bad Adultery as Mary Margret is shamed by David's wife Kathryn and the whole affair is played as a rather horrible thing. While both were dishonest about it, David was the one who failed to tell his wife the truth when he promised that he would which made Mary Margret out as the bad guy for destroying a recently reunited couple (who had promised to work on their marriage in 3 different episodes no less). In the end they end up together though despite dragging the whole thing through hell and highwater the whole first season, but only because [[spoiler: everyone gets their fairy tale memories back and remembers that they're supposed to be together.]]

Gary Sparrow, the [[TimeTravel time traveling]] hero was in a relationship (and later marriage) with two different women in two different time periods (the 1940's and the 1990's). While the series treated the affair itself as wrong, Gary personally was always portrayed very sympathetically as a man impossibly caught between two women he loved and as feeling very guilty for doing so.

** Recent comics have had Deadpool and Rogue seemingly falling for one another, during the rough patch in his marriage. A big thing was Deadpool trusting her enough to let her see who his daughter is, and where she lives. And he wants Rogue to watch over her, if she becomes a mutant. They later have a moment after Rogue, who was being mind-controlled at the time, badly beats Deadpool, who even with his healing factor, still had to use a cane. She goes to him to ask if he hates her. He quickly tells her that he doesn't, and he doesn't want her to feel bad over him. Rogue kisses him, which heals him, and even restores his original face. Deadpool worries about her getting his memories, feeling she just likes him because she doesn't really know him. Rogue kisses him again, seeing flashes of bad memories. But she tells Deadpool that she can handle it, and that him being in her head is a relief after Red Skull. Deadpool says that's the most romantic thing someone has said to him, before they share a longer kiss in one another's arms.
