First as a formality file a police complaint and get some record of the relationship out of a wedded relationship, and then seek divorce. It is absolutely true that an unsecured wife with children can not seek divorce but still can file cruelty by the partner for filing a criminal complaint to the police as an extra marital relationship also amounts to cruelty to the wife. The situation is difficult for a wife to challenge all this, and please approach the Women's protection cell for their involvement and help in keeping the married relationship intact and for preventing the other partner from such an extramarital relationship.

A third party has no standing on such issues. It is for the husband to any action.
