Nowadays, affairs are common in any SoapOpera and turn up an awful lot in other types of story as well. We don't really ''expect'' a fictional husband and wife to stay faithful to each other for forty or so years. Supposedly, [[TrueLoveIsBoring a solid marriage makes a boring story]] (though [[HappilyMarried some would disagree]]). Often, a sequence of "get together ➡️ one cheats ➡️ they break up ➡️ they make up ➡️ the other one cheats", and so on) will be followed so often and so tiresomely that it becomes a YoyoPlotPoint.

[[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery A few rules]] usually hold true in fiction: [[TheUnfairSex Women who cheat are generally portrayed much more sympathetically than men]]. If a woman cheats, her paramour just scored a ''massive'' victory over her husband, and [[{{Cuckold}} her husband]] is 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]]

* ''Fanfic/PersonaEG'' has several characters cheat on someone at major points during the story:
** [[spoiler:Cadance has been known to cheat on Shining Armor a lot, even before the events in the story itself began. However, the worst time out of all of them was when Cadence's relationship troubles with Shining Armor came to a head and a drunk Cadance seduces and sleeps with Flash.]]
** [[spoiler:After Sunset moves into the dorm, Shining Armor eventually sleeps with her during a visit at Sweet Apple Acres where he says she looks just like a high school crush he once had. It turns out he was lying; she really resembled a ''movie character'' he lusted for.]]
** [[spoiler:After getting into an argument with Twilight, Flash takes his anger out by having sex with Trixie after helping her with a magic trick, [[{{Hypocrite}} this happens only one day after Flash yelled at Twilight that "he wasn't Cadance"]]. The LTE version expands on this and has Trixie encourage Flash to make up with Twilight.]]

** A major element in the game's story is the news that council secretary Taro Namatame had been having an affair with reporter Mayumi Yamano. When she is found dead, suspicion is thrown on Namatame and his wife, Enka singer Misuzu Hiiragi, but both apparently have solid alibis.

* In ''VisualNovel/TrueLoveJunaiMonogatari'', you can ''technically'' sorta do this a la ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': the PlayerCharacter can romance (and bed!) ''almost all'' the prospect bachelorettes in the game if you, as the player, play your cards right. [[spoiler: Subverted in the end -- you can flirt/sleep with all the girls, but ''only'' ask one of them out.]]\\\
Additionally, if you are seeing both Mikae and Remi, you'll get the chance to date Remi on the 27th of September and Mikae on the 28th. If you do, [[spoiler: Mikae will believe you had sex with Remi (even if you didn't), she'll call you a bastard and leave in a huff, ruining your chances with her forever.]] Noticeable in that [[spoiler: romancing Mikae alone will show you [[PlayerPunch her exact reasons to react like that]] ]], and that it's the ''only'' time the player gets directly punished for pursuing more than one girl.
