Stories, whether fictional or real-life, has factual basis on it one way or another. Infidelity is so common that many authors and movie-makers create their stories with that as the concept. Now, we all know that not everything you see on television is real nor should we believe in it easily. But there are times, especially when it comes to movies, that the story is so true and so realistic that the viewers can easily relate because maybe they have friends who experienced what the characters or experiencing, OR maybe they are experiencing it themselves.
Let us see the various infidelity stories in movies that convey true-to-life experiences.
CHEATING CASE # 1: Husband-Teacher to Wife with A student
MOVIE(s): Election (1999) and What Lies Beneath (2000)

What lies beneath is a 2000 American thriller film where in a scientist husband (Harrison Ford) cheats on his faithful wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) on his student (Amber Valetta)
In these two cases, you may realize that there is a small difference. In the first, its the student who went after the teacher. In the second, its the teacher who went after the student. Either way, it still involves infidelity and majors in conflict. Not only is cheating involve, but there is an ingredient of child abuse. Obviously, the age gap between a teacher and a student is there and that screams wrong aloud. Sure age doesnt matter if love is there, but if the older one is married, know the limitations.
You may think this is so unbelievable but it happens and there are a lot of cases that Ive heard already in the radio and magazines. So Parents, if youre usually lazy-student daughter or son starts being active in one particular subject only, then be surprised. There could be an affair going on.
CHEATING CASE # 2: Its Not Only the Guys Fault

When their money and savings ran out, this is where the billionaire comes in.
So as you can see, its not only the husband who is the primary suspect in cheating cases. It may also be the wife and usually the reason is due to emotional distress ad dissatisfaction. And as you see clearly in the given movies, the reasons for their infidelity are really unreasonable; because of his wifes infidelity Depps character sank into deep depression and had a hard time coping up with not only his life, but also his job and because of the discovery that his wife was cheating on him, Harrelsons character decided to divorce her even though he still loves her.
