Adultery has been decriminalized in India. However, it could still be the reason for divorce. Supreme Court has scrapped the law that punishes only men for adultery but not women. In China, adultery is not a punishable act, but it is a ground for divorce where in Taiwan it is a punishable offence. Pakistan also considers adultery as a criminal act. In the Philippines also practising adultery is a criminal act.
