Dear Nitin, 

Two wrongs cannot make a thing right.  In your case your predicament is that without knowing the consequences you voluntarily entered into a relationship with a married woman.  Now later when the relationship has gone sour for whatever reason you cannot shy away from the truth.  Even if she was a consenting party but a wrong is a wrong and if the matter gets aggrevated than there is a strong possibility that you might be in great difficult situation. My considerate counsel to you is to get the situation mutually resolved "amicably" and as a precaution get ready for litigation as well.

Best regards

We are trying our best to solve the issue  amicably,but not sure it will work or not,

what all things can her husband do to her? can he divorce her stating that she has an illicit affair?

can her husband claim on her that she cheated on me so i need divorce?

Are you worried about her husbands problem or your problem?, Your illicit relationship with her has nothing to do with her married life.  It is a problem between she and her husband. You have stated to have married another person and are living separately away from her. If she is threatening you hat she will lode rape case, ask her to proceed because it is a consensual affair/relationship, hence it will be very hard to prove her false allegations.

I agreed with Shri. Kalaiselvan sir...
