unfortunately according to section 497 of ipc only a husband can proceed against another man who have extramarital affairs with his wife but viceversa a wife cannot. but in your case that lady is married so only husband of that lady can proceed under section 497 of ipc against your husband.
but you can proceed for matrimonial relief on the ground of adultery such as judicial seperation or divorce petition interalia claiming maintenance with your husband
