The troubled couple was then called for counselling during which it surfaced that the man had indeed been having an affair with a colleague who was older than him. He also wanted to leave his wife and wanted to live with the other woman. However, the wife didn’t want a divorce.
After several rounds of counselling, the two finally came to decision where the woman agreed to divorce him provided that his lover gifts her an apartment along with Rs 27 lakh in cash. The house, along with the money, collectively valued at around Rs 1.5 crore, is essential for her to provide quality education and other essential care for their daughters, the woman argued.
She also told the counselor that she didn’t want to live with someone whom she didn’t love after years of marriage. So, she chose to leave her husband while ensuring she could take care of her daughters.
