Your sexual pleasure can land you in jail if that girl start a case u/s 376 IPC, which attract imprisonment not less than 7 years but up to 10 years.So settle that matter with that girl as she was your friend, amicably.

your factual situation is not clear to me. You are saying that you got engaged to your girl friend from the college days however since you did not want to marry her, you got married to another girl you loved. I fail to understand what is the case is your ex girl friend is threatening to file against you. is it rape? If that be so, inter course with the promise to get married is an offence however there are other decisions which says otherwise as wel. please be clear on the facts to get proper advice.

1. If you have been threatened into an engagement, then you should have reported the matter to police immediately. You did not do so,

2. Did you inform your married wife about the existance of your class mate with whom you were engaged s*xually and got ceremoniously engaged also but did not finally marry?

3. If no, then none of the  girls know the existance of the other girls when you have been having and have had s*x with both of them,

4. Your happy days may be over shortly & you might have to deprive yourself of s*x for atleast 7 years since there will be no facility for having s*x in jail,

5. Short out the issue amicably with both the girls, since both of them can take you to Court easily.
