The wife cannot accuse her husband of data theft though the information was transferred from a common laptop that they both used while they lived together under one roof. He will definitely used the info against the wife in the divorce proceedings. What the wife will have to prove is that the said info will not amount to cruelty. Now your problem will be to prevent the divorce from happening. Forget about taking action against the husband for theft of data.
