* "Fanfic/TheLightInTheDark" Bertha's father cheated on Mrs. Jorkins with another woman, resulting in Bertha's birth and Mrs. Jorkins' hatred of her. Eileen Prince is having an affair, but we don't know who with. Meanwhile, both of Maria's parents are cheating on each other, but neither of them realize it. This actually serves as something of a Freudian Excuse for Maria and her skewed perception regarding relationships, as she has known since she was a small child and was sworn to secrecy by both of them.

* ''Literature/TheReturnOfConan''[[note]]not written by Creator/RobertEHoward[[/note]] begins a year after Literature/ConanTheBarbarian married Zenobia, the slave girl who saved his life in TheHourOfTheDragon. It is noted in the early chapter that "Those who know Conan best are a little bit surprised to see the King, in middle age, turn monogamous and even uxorious". At the Royal Ball of Aquilonia, courtiers can't help noticing that the King and Queen are obviously in love and can hardly keep their hands off each other. Then, Queen Zenobia is abducted by an evil magician and carried off all the way to China. Conan immediately sets off to save her, going all by himself all the way from Western Europe to East Asia, braving countless dangers and repeatedly risking his life countless times on the way. There could be no doubt of his love and devotion to Zenobia - still, while en route he is not precisely monogamous or uxorious. He spends an intensive night of love-making with Devi Yasmina of Vendhya , an old flame of his, and later accepts the sexual reward offered by a Chinese girl whose life he saved. He also shows a considerable interest in the beautiful Turanian spy Thanara, though she had shown herself a cunning and dangerous enemy. In the very end, when Conan and the freed Zenobia make their long way back, Thanara makes a final attempt on Conan's life, and is killed by an arrow from Zenobia's bow. :
''Literature/TheScarletLetter'' Uses this trope as the vehicle for the plot. Every object and living person seems to be trying to give Hester Prynne a GuiltComplex. Her lover the reverend Dimmsdale has turned into TheAtoner and regularly [[SelfHarm whips himself on the back]] [[ThePenance for the sin he committed.]] [[DarkSecret Hester will not say]] [[SecretRelationship who she cheated with.]] She is subjected to a form of HumiliationConga and [[ConeOfShame required to wear a Scarlet "A" on her chest, branding her an adulteress.]] The child that results from their tryst also specializes in TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior given her constant interest in the minister and the meaning of the letter that Hester wears on her chest. It's taken UpToEleven when she suggests that the reason her mother wears a scarlet"A" on her chest is the same reason that the minister keeps his hand over his heart in public. It's True! (Dimmsdale sewed an A on the inside of his clothes as part of his private atonement.). The only thing that escapes the child is the letter's meaning, but she has the [[ArmorPiercingQuestion perfect remedy for that.]] In the end, [[spoiler:the reverend finally confesses, but [[RedemptionEqualsDeath you know what they say..]]]]

* WhitneyHouston's “Saving All My Love For You” deconstructs this trope from the other woman’s perspective, expressing how sad and hopeless it is to be in love with a married man but unable to find anyone more compatible.
-->''You used to tell me we’d run away together''
-->''“Love gives you the right to be free”''
-->''You said, “Be patient, just wait a little longer”''

* “Baby Baby” by the Miracles is a plea to take the singer back after he cheated.


Added DiffLines:

* “Let’s Get It On” by MarvinGaye is a meta-example, as it is directed towards a real woman Gaye wants to have an affair with. Some of the lyrics hint at this.
-->''There’s nothing wrong with me loving you''
-->''And giving yourself to me can never be wrong''
-->''If the love is true''
** The woman is [[Characters/TheMatrixZion Nona]] [[Film/{{Crash}} Gaye]]’s mother, so the song does the job.
