Rama is a dynamic character. His archetype changes over the course of the story. In the beginning of the book, he is the archetypal the romantic hero. In the beginning of the book Rama proves to sita, his beloved wife how much love he has for her.

By the middle when Sita gets kidnapped by Ravana, Rama begins to transform into the archetypal traitor. Rama thinks Sita being in Ravana's house for a long time could have cheated on him.

Rama is no longer the person who Sita wants his kids to look up to after he rejected Sita when he found out she was pregnant.

A reader will recognize that the turning point for Rama comes when Rama sees Sita's kids and realizes that they look like him and she never cheated on him.
