Can connivance be used to trick a husband into an affair?

At one time, it was very difficult for a woman to get a divorce. Adultery by the husband was a recognized grounds for divorce. If the woman could not get a divorce any other way, she may have been willing to trick her husband into having an affair. It sounds farfetched today, a woman trying to trick her husband into having an affair, but it happened.

If a woman would use connivance to trick her husband, the marriage is essentially dead, anyway.
