* A man sees an ad offering a gently-used Porsche for the comically-low price of $20. Intrigued, he shows up. The Porsche is there, it's real. He takes it on a test drive, it runs just fine. So he asks the woman selling it why she's willing to let it go for so cheap. She explains that the Porsche technically belongs to her husband, who recently ran away with his secretary. So when he calls back home and says "sell the Porsche and send me the money", she's doing ''{{exact|Words}}ly'' what he asked.

[[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery A few rules]] usually hold true in fiction: [[TheUnfairSex Women who cheat are many times portrayed much more sympathetically than men.]] If a woman cheats, her paramour just scored a ''massive'' victory over her {{cuckold}}ed husband, who is now permanently dishonored. The (male) big boss of any given workplace is likely to be two-timing his wife. TheProtagonist [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality remains sympathetic if they cheat]], and becomes an innocent, wronged victim if they are the one being cheated on. [[DepravedBisexual Bisexuals are portrayed as incapable of faithfulness]] or have [[UrbanLegendLoveLife merely informed sexuality]], and men are more prone to having affairs than women. [[note]]So those that do must be ''very busy''.[[/note]]

Unfortunately, adultery is TruthInTelevision, as many broken hearts and broken families will testify. It is also one of the most common reasons that people murder each other.

* Over in Norse mythology, we have Sif- married to Thor, and though it was never confirmed to be true or false, Loki at one point accused her of sleeping with him ("Only I know, as I think I do know/Your love besides Thor/And that was the wicked Loki!"). She says nothing, and then another goddess starts talking. And in an earlier myth, Odin (in disguise) said to Thor the equivalent of "Hey, no need to hurry home to your wife or anything, because she's got someone else to keep her bed warm!" Both times, Thor was understandably pissed.

** David commits adultery with Bathsheba and after several failed attempts to get her husband Uriah to go home and sleep with her (In order to make it seem that Uriah had conceived the child that resulted from their tryst), David decides to indirectly murder him using [[UriahGambit ....what else?]]. It works. Although considering the impossibility of hiding anything from God and the punishment that resulted from this sin, nobody would be blamed for saying that David DidntThinkThisThrough.
