Please remember in Indian Law adultery can be filed only by a man against the man with whom his wife is in a relationship. Your case is the other way around. Since your friend has already admitted to his wife about his extra marital affair in this case the best recourse is to sit across the table and negotiate for a mutual consent divorce. If he delays taking action then his wife might file a domestic violence case against him or even 498A (subject to her having adequate proof). Please ask your friend to consult a lawyer to understand what legal course he needs to initiate.
