Adultery is an invasion of the right of the husband over his wife, an extramarital affair. It is an offence against the husband. In other words, it is an invasion of the sanctity of the matrimonial home and an offence committed by a man. The sexual intercourse between a married woman and a man with or without the consent of the woman is termed adultery.

This research paper attempts to analyze adultery from its legal conceptual base and proceeded to examine its effect, impact and changes brought by the recent judgements in the section which not only saved the “outsider” to the marriage from being accused criminally but also guarded the dignity and safety of the women in the society.
