* The first episode of ''Anime/DeathParade'' has an... extremely complicated example of this trope. The series takes place in what is essentially purgatory and the premise revolves around an ArtificialHuman who must decide whether people get sent to an endless void or allowed to be reincarnated. The episode revolves around a newly wed husband and wife who died on their honeymoon. At first we're led to believe Machiko is a GoldDigger however a few moments later she explains to Takashi that he misunderstood everything. However [[spoiler:it turns out she really did cheat on him, however only once and she regretted it.]] ''Then'' it's revealed [[spoiler:that too was a lie. She never loved him and their unborn baby wasn't his.]] [[spoiler:Machiko]] gets sent to the Void for their actions [[spoiler:however the end of the episode implies she was actually lying ''about lying''. She hated seeing her husband blame himself for killing their child so she pretended it wasn't his in order to have him rest in peace.]] Decim recognizes his mistake however it's too late to fix, and [[spoiler:Machiko]] is cursed to [[AFateWorseThanDeath all of eternity falling in an endless abyss.]]

* Surprisingly, ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' featured an instance of this in one episode -- May's father Norman and the local Nurse Joy were actually setting up a fireworks display celebrating Norman and Caroline's anniversary. The English dub censored the plot bymaking it seem like Caroline and Norman were fighting instead of doubts of fidelity being implied.

* Shi from ''Manga/WanderingSon'' mistakes [[CoolBigSis Yuki]] for cheating with one of the protagonists, Takatsuki, in his first appearance; she's touching him rather suggestively on the face. The creepy part is that, though Yuki would never harm Takatsuki, she is in her mid-twenties at youngest, and Takatsuki was only eleven... And a [[{{Transsexual}} girl who feels that he's actually more like a boy]], though neither Shi nor Yuki knew that (though Yuki seemed to have guessed).

* ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour'' revolves around this. A [[EnfantTerrible little girl]] accuses her two teachers of [[MistakenForGay having an affair]] in order to avoid going to school. It ruins their social lives, ruins their teaching careers, and [[spoiler:Karen's fiancee leaves her due to doubts]]. The 1933 film adaptation ''These Three'' changed it into accusations Joe was cheating with Martha, though the 1960 remake keeps the original plot.

* One Franchise/{{Archie|Comics}} story had Archie's mother borrow his jacket and accidentally leave a tube of lipstick in the pocket. Betty and Veronica later borrow Archie's jacket and find the lipstick. They think that Archie is seeing another girl because the lipstick isn't either of their brands, and angrily confront the baffled Archie. Betty and Veronica both dump Archie, but then they realize that this will just make him go after the girl they think he's seeing now. They both come back and smooch Archie to show that they're better than the competition. The story ends with Archie's mother realizing what she did and apologizing if she caused him any trouble, but a love-dizzy Archie just tells her to cause as much of it as she wants.

* ''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.

* A few episodes of ''Series/{{Family Matters}}'' fit this trope. The first was "The Stake-Out" when Estelle and Rachel fear Carl is cheating on Harriet with his female police partner, Vanessa.
