Is this woman I am about to describe one who did something wrong in her marriage or is it okay to do if unhappy in a marriage?

So I knew a woman who is the sister of my uncle's ex-wife. My uncle and his wife were unhappy in their marriage and so the wife asked for a divorce and they got one. No cheating (though one dated before divorced) and no infidelity (same thing I know). Yet the ex-wife's sister, whose son I used to play with when my uncle was married, was unhappy in her marriage. Not sure the details but she had 3 kids and decided another man was who she loved and not her husband. She began an affair with that man and then, and only then, told her husband she wanted a divorce. This was in the 1990's. I recall my then-aunt, uncle's ex, stating her sister was wrong and knows it. Her two daughters stayed with her and her son lived with his heartbroken Dad. 


So while I am not looking to cast stones at this woman I have not seen in over a decade, I am wondering this. Was this woman wrong or was it okay and adultery being wrong is just me being judgemental?

    She clearly did something wrong in her marriage by starting another relationshio before ending it. It's a common thing to do when women need some kind of support structure romantically before they leave the marriage. The practice isn't right, but I understand why it's done.

    It is not your place judgement on anyone. You need to worry about yourself not a family member. MYOB

    Adultery is always wrong. It's just too easy to get a divorce first.

    It's just you being judgmental.
