In the UK, adultery is not a criminal offence. However, it is grounds for divorce.
So, you can not sue that third person , however you can apply for divorce on the basis of adultery if you can prove it in the court.
Adultery can only be used as a reason for divorce if the proceedings start within six months of the adultery coming to light.
I hope this helps.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
In the meantime, thank you for using Just Answers. Best wishes.
You can dissolve your marriage on the basis of adultery.
Adultery may have very little effect on the financial settlement, court may not punish a spouse financially when making a financial court order because that spouse has committed adultery and other spouse decided to end the marriage.
