Greetings. Yes, adultery is a crime. You do not “charge” someone with adultery, but instead the district attorney does. I have not seen it enforced, but that does not mean it is not, as I do not attend criminal court.
Right now, your wife is the one committing adultery, if she is having sex with someone else. If the other man is married, then he too is committing adultery. If the DA charges the other man, he is sure to charge your wife also. Good luck (and I think you are barking up the wrong tree).
