Adultery is a ground for divorce.     Though adultery is committed by cent per cent people, it's a ground for divorce; wisely so.

Collect evidence that he is committing adultery if he's reluctant to give divorce.    If he agrees for mutual consent divorce, it's well and good.

New life for your sister?

If this means a second marriage for your sister, your sister will be out of frying pan into the fire.

Don't dream of any man ( for that matter, woman ) who doesn't commit adultery.

Only the s*xual intercourse with a person other than his or her spouse constitutes adultery, mere caresses, or other acts of intimacy with any other person does not amount to adultery. The offence of adultery must be proved beyond reasonable doubt, a single act of adultery is a valid cause for divorce

Intercourse with a married woman by a man other than her husband is adultery.

Intercourse with a married man by a woman other than his wife is not adultery.

Strange law.    Strange dictionaries.

It's presumed that woman can't do intercourse!

Dear Sir,

Your sister can get a divorce on the grounds of adultery. Since adultery is an act committed in utmost secrecy, it becomes difficult to establish it. In cases of adultery, direct proof may not be possible. Adultery can be proved by circumstantial evidence but it must be such as would lend to the conclusion that adultery was committed. Thus, for adultery preponderance of probability is enough. 

Alternatively, you can get a divorce on the grounds of mental cruelty. 

Hope this clears your doubt.
