* A series of ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' strips has Andy convinced that Roger is cheating on her when he's actually at work. ("Listen -- hear that squeaking? You know how my chair squeaks." "Sounds like bedsprings." "Fred, get in here and talk to my wife.") In the last strip, she apologizes for being paranoid and they hug...at which point she [[AffairHair plucks a hair from his jacket and asks whose it is]]. (No, Roger wasn't cheating; he's just balding.)
** Fred's response to being called over is "[[HereWeGoAgain Not again...]]", implying that Andy does this with some degree of regularity.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4267279/1/Hero_High_Sphinx_Academy Hero High: Sphinx Academy]], Ren suspects this of Ben when she has noticed him hanging out with Julie several times, though more often than not he is getting help from Julie to get a gift for Ren for their upcoming anniversary. It doesn't help that Susan, one of the BigBad's lackeys and instructed to cause tension between the couple to slow them down, is the one encouraging the idea.

* ''StrangeMagic'' plays with this - one of the first scenes is of a fairy princess catching man she was about to marry kissing another woman (''on their wedding day''), but another character later describes the situation as a "misunderstanding" - her charismatic ex convinced everyone, including her father, that either he didn't really cheat or it was a minor lapse in judgement and won't be repeated.

* James Wilson on ''Series/{{House}}'' gets accused of this by House every time he so much looks at a woman (to be fair, he ''did'' cheat on two of his wives and told them about it later). This trope is actually the entire B-plot of "Fools for Love", in which it's subverted - it's not Wilson that Nurse Wendy is dating, it's Foreman.

This might have had some thing to do with the fact that [[spoiler: Jill was evil and using Chuck]].

To give it one final push, Joker has one of his goons make a fake newspaper article that Bruce and the girlfriend were getting engaged and slipped it to an already suspicious Two-Face. Two-Face then loses it, escapes from Arkham, proceeds to kidnap his girlfriend and [[MurderTheHypotenuse attempt to murder]] Bruce.

* In the Soviet comedy ''Film/TheDiamondArm'', a man named Semyon accidentally gets an orthopedic cast full of diamonds placed on his arm during a trip to Istanbul by smugglers working with TheMafiya, assuming him to be a courier. Upon arrival back home, he immediately goes to the police, only for them to use him as bait for the larger organization. His wife starts [[SpysSuspiciousWife getting suspicious about strange absences and a gun she finds in his things]], but he tells her he is on a "special mission". It gets worse, when their apartment building superintendent tells her that her husband's behavior is shameful, pointing out that she wouldn't be surprised if he's seeing another woman on the side (in the original script, she suggested that he might be secretly Jewish, but the line was overdubbed in post-production due to the CensorshipBureau). The bad guys hire an attractive blonde to seduce Semyon and put a sleeping pill in his drink. Just then, Semyon's wife (who has found the woman's note with her address) and superintendent burst in and see Semyon seemingly drunk (he's actually suffering the effects of the pill) with a half-naked woman dancing for him. The blonde shifts blame onto Semyon with a line that has since become famous, "It's not my fault, he came himself!" The next morning, Semyon wakes up in his apartment to find his wife and kids gone, with a note telling him that, now that she knows what his "special mission" is all about, she is moving back in with her mother and taking their kids with her. Fortunately, by the end of the film, the cops explain the truth to her, and she comes back.

However, both have become convinced the other is cheating on them, due to frequent suspicious disappearances and flimsy excuses, but neither of them can say anything to the other without risking their own secret, forcing them to confide in their respective best friends and their partners. When Nino and Alya get tired of their complaining, they force them to confront each other about it, leading to a heated argument where both become angry at the other's accusations. It gets to the point where Adrien decides to clear himself by admitting to being Chat Noir - but his wording - "Iím fucking Chat Noir, okay?
