  • Abstract: This study explores the multifaceted impact of adultery in India, examining its legal, social, and psychological dimensions. The research delves into the historical context of adultery laws, highlighting the recent decriminalization of adultery by the Supreme Court of India in 2018, which marked a significant shift in the legal landscape. The study investigates the societal perceptions and cultural stigmas associated with adultery, considering the influence of traditional values and modern dynamics on public opinion and individual behavior.

    Furthermore, the psychological effects on individuals involved, including spouses and children, are analyzed to understand the emotional and mental health repercussions. Through a comprehensive review of legal cases, socio cultural analyses, and psychological assessments, this research aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the consequences of adultery in contemporary Indian society. The findings underscore the complexity of adultery's impact, suggesting the need for nuanced approaches in addressing its implications within the legal framework, social discourse, and mental health support systems.
