You wife knows exactly what she needs to do, and God has clearly shown her, the rest is up to her . It does not mean that she will do the right thing, because the right thing is to leave the man now and cut off all contact for good, but you can keep praying that she will. You say that she has nowhere to go, but you have given her a solution to that, so she now has no excuse. Its her decision.

As for thinking of ending a marriage being sin, under certain circumstances God allows divorce, and I do know people (including myself) who God clearly led to separate and divorce their spouses for serious reasons. Adultery is so very very serious, after all had she lived in OT times she would have been stoned to death, and I think that people forget that it breaks the marriage covenant and destroys the trust.
You have decided that you can have her back if she chooses the right way, some cannot, and I don't condemn then at all, because even God knows that for many there is no way back from such serious and appalling betrayal.
In Him I live and move and have my being.

My determined purpose is that I may know Him - that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly."

It is by Grace we have been saved though Faith and not by works so that no one can boast.

chosen,
I completely agree with you.  But I believe that reconciliation should be sought first before divorce.  I am giving her that chance now.  If divorce happens in this situation, it will not be from me.  All I can do is to keep praying and trusting in God.

yes depending on the circumstances reconciliation can work, but that does depend on why the marriage is ending, and, if the reaoson is adultery, whether the cheated on spouse can ever trust them again, or even bring themslevs to ever have sex with that person again(and some cannot). 
I am not going to say why my marriage ended, but 3 different church leaders advised me that divorce was my only option in the circumstances. Reconcoliation wasnt an option.
In Him I live and move and have my being.
