* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}, the titular character cheats on his wife... with the wife of another man, who promptly tries to blackmail him. To save face and deny allegations of embezzlement and illegal speculation with said other man, Hamilton publishes a pamphlet that boils down to "No, I did not pay this guy from the state treasury, I did it of my own pocket. What I was doing is cheat on my wife." This wrecks his career, strains his relationship with his wife Eliza, and leads to his son Phillip defending his honor in a duel.

** Adultery in general is considered as a sin. The Book of Corinthian provides a detailed definition about this subject: In order to prevent sexual immorality, Paul insisted that marriage and a long-lasting relationship is a preferable solution. If the spouse is a non-believer and still follows a believer, the believer is not allowed to propose a divorce. The only two occasions where one can legitimately seek a SecondLove is if the spouse was deceased (which ends the bond of marriage), or if a non-believer left the believer.

Most of us recognize this type of plot: Bob is married to Alice. One day, Bob sees Carol at a club and is attracted to her. Perhaps things haven't been going so well with Alice for some time. Maybe they just had a major fight and Bob stormed off. Or maybe his marriage is perfectly healthy, and Bob has no excuse. Whatever the reason, Bob flirts with Carol, which eventually leads to a sexual or romantic relationship and the various things that entails. But here's the thing: Bob doesn't tell Alice about it. He doesn't dump her, he doesn't tell her that he thinks the marriage is on the rocks, he doesn't talk to her about Polyamory or swinging, he doesn't even ask for "more space". He continues to play the part of her husband, and expects her to continue being his wife, hoping that Alice won't notice when he starts coming in late for dinner, or ask him about the mysterious expenditures on their joint account. Sometimes, just to really play Alice for a sucker, their marriage will seemingly ''improve''-- he buys Alice gifts, pays attention to her and seems much happier, but all the while he's running off to see Carol. For extra scumbag points, he may be keeping Carol similarly in the dark about Alice. Chances are he'll eventually get caught; if he didn't, the story wouldn't have the same dramatic impact. A lot of angst and tension will ensue.

[[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery A few rules]] usually hold true in fiction: 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 (and often portrayed as TheUnfairSex too when it comes to cheating).
