I am single and have been having an affair with a married woman for eight years. She has always been giving me, I just need a little more time, to leave my husband. See designed and I paid for a $40,000 diamond ring, in June 2010. This was done with the understanding that with the purchase, we were a done deal.
After pressing her to follow through, she has declined and dropped all plans with me. I ask her to help me out on the ring, since she designed the whole thing, she has declined.
Everyone in my family knows about us, and has been waiting for us to be married. In her family, I am a secret. I told her that if she didn't help me financially on the ring, I would tell her parents and kids, what mine already know.
I received a letter from an attorney today, telling me to not have any further involvement in her life, or she will sue me more emotional distress. I have paid such a price, and it appears to me that she gets off without consequences.
If I tell the truth to her family and friends, can I be successfully sued?
I have looked up the definition of IIED
1.defendant acted intentionally
2.defendants conduct must be extreme and outrageous
3.Cause of severe emotional distress
I would do this intentionally to make her accountable
Would traveling to another state to inform her parents and children in person be extreme in a legal sense
This would cause her emotional distress
