Supreme Court approves of adultery: Where should the women go?

All the laws dealing with adultery are already biased in favour of men.

A LETTER TO MY SISTER

  • Arvind Jain

Dear sister!

I received your letter. After going through it, I wonder what advice I should give to you. After reading, deliberating and pondering over all the legal provisions, I can only conclude that you cannot get your husband punished for ‘adultery’ because, what your husband is doing is not ‘adultery’ in the eyes of the law. Even if it were so, you don’t have any right to get him punished. You can only seek divorce and, that too will be difficult to get, in the absence of any concrete evidence and witnesses.
