My husband is an airline pilot. After a stupid (on his part) over night affair with a flight attendant, she threatened him with pregnancy (which she wasn''t) and then made him continue the affair by threatening to tell me (his wife) what happened. She has verbally admitted this to me and somewhat in e mails. This has pretty much destroyed my marriage. He admitted to the one night mistake, but that he felt trapped into continuing the relationship because of constant threats. Can I sue her?
What state are you in?

Thank you for your reply.

Unfortunately lawsuits against the third party (called alienation of affection) have been abolished in Missouri since June 17,2003.

Some injured spouses have attempted to sue the third party under an intentional infliction of emotional distress claim, this is a tough case to prove, but the general elements to sustain a cause of action are as follows:

1)Behavior is intentional or reckless
2) Behavior is extreme or outrageous
3) The behavior caused several emotional distress on the aggrieved spouse.

If you believe you can sustain these elements, then please have an attorney to represent you as these cases are tough to go it alone.
