Dear Sir,

You can not take any action against her as per IPC but you can take action against her paramour and you can make her as a witness.

The second query is dicey one which can be explained during an audience.

Rest for legal assistance you can contact on 08750228171.

Last question first: The husband should not oppose divorce, if she is interested.

Ist question: The best remedy with the husband is to seek divorce on the ground of adultery of his wife. If adultery is proved, she may not be entitled to maintenance.

It is better to give divorce. Adultry/relation with other person is also a ground for you to get divorce. but if u will not divorce her the people will blame you that you are not capable and hence send your wife to someone else to satisfy her or for any other economic benefit.

good luck.
