Joseph Shine v. Union of India, (2018) 2 SCC 189

In India, adultery was sanctioned by patriarchy and male chauvinism. A guy who has sexual intercourse with a woman who is the wife of another man is guilty of this crime. And if the spouse agrees or colludes in the conduct, it is no longer considered adultery. In the event that her husband commits adultery, she has no rights. Joseph Shine filed a writ petition under Article 32, contesting the legality of Section 497 of the Indian Penal Code, coupled with Section 198 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, as being in violation of Articles 14, 15, and 21. This started out as a PIL against adultery
