* ''WesternAnimation/BigMouth'': Deconstrcuted. [[spoiler:Jessi's parents romance died years ago, they are stuck with each other now, constantly fighting because Greg is a lazy stoner while Shannon is constantly working to keep the house afloat as he can't give any help at all; Jessi herself is implied to side with her mom most of the time because she sees her dad as useless. As a result of the bad marriage, Shannon starts an affair with their Cantor. This is deconstructed because, when this is revealed, nobody is actually capable of giving Shannon any sympathy: her daughter is heartbroken over watching the fallout of her parent's marriage and sides with her father and Greg heard how Shannon can't honestly say she is still in love with him, leading to what's implied to be a very turbulent and emotionally damaging divorce to all involved. No matter how many excuses Shannon has, or how valid they are, she still cheated on her husband and still destroyed her own family]].

* This is Kelly's justification for cheating on Ed at the beginning of ''Series/TheOrville''. He claims that he spent too much time at work, ignoring her. His rebuttal is that he was working hard for both of them. At the same time, Kelly is clearly feeling guilty about her affair and the devastating effect it had on Ed (he used to be the fleet's golden boy, then his career went sharply downhill). Eventually, both admit that they made mistakes, and the marriage was likely doomed anyway.

* In ''Series/GilmoreGirls'', Rory and Dean sleep together even though Dean is married to Lindsay. Dean does it because Rory is his first love and he married Lindsay even though he wasn't over Rory yet. Rory does it because she likes the adoration Dean gives her, which feels safe and dependable in comparison to her experience with more worldly college boys who don't think she hung the moon.

The town scapegoats Dean, but is very sympathetic towards Rory. For the audience, it led to a BrokenBase, with some feeling like it was a one-time mistake for a naive Rory and others feeling like it was the first sign that Rory was would do extremely selfish things, not caring who got hurt, as long as she got what she wanted.
