Source : Indlaw.com

The Supreme Court has ruled that an illicit relationship of a married man with another woman amounts to cruelty to his wife. 

A bench, comprising Justices Harjeet Singh Bedi and R M Lodha, while dismissing appeal of Laxman Ram Mane from Raigarh district of Maharashtra, whose wife had committed suicide after being subjected to beating and humiliation by him when she objected to an illicit relationship, noted, 'We are of the opinion that an illicit relationship of a married man with another woman would clearly amount to cruelty within the meaning of Section 498-A of the IPC.'
