* '''Reconstructed''': Alice's affairs are justified by being a part of her [[HeroicBSOD emotional breakdown]] from Bob's betrayal and the subsequent divorce. Meanwhile, [[ImAManICantHelpIt Bob is now cheating on Diane with another mistress]].
* '''Plotted A Good Waste''': After years of this, a subplot becomes Bob's seemingly building anger at how lopsided this treatment is, and it seems to be building up to Alice getting told off because of it. At the last moment Bob chickens out, and realizes that because he's that kind of person is why Alice can blame him.

* '''Enforced''': "That scene where the wife got bitched out for cheating didn't test well with the females in the crowd, and we know they'll be buying most of the tickets. Change it to where she's portrayed all sympathetically".

* '''Played For Laughs''': Alice's judgments are so out of order not even Bob takes them seriously, and both his and Alice's friends will make up stories so he doesn't have to go through Alice's increasingly absurd punishments.
** Alternatively, Alice's [[HypocriticalHumor hypocrisy]] can be seen from ''space'' and is so transparent that, again, it's not taken seriously.
** Alternatively Alternatively, Alice comes up with every excuse in the book as to why it's all Bob's fault. None of them work because they're either [[BlatantLies blatantly untrue]] or just [[InsaneTrollLogic make no sense]].

* '''Justified''':
** Alice has [[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery a relatively sympathetic reason for her cheating]], while Bob just wanted an easy lay.
