Hi,

I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.

No, you cannot sue your lover because he is unfaithful to you, even if you left your husband for him. There's no legal cause of action available to you. These kinds of cases are referred to as "heartbalm cases" and only a very, very few states allow remedies for those who get emotionaly hurt by a husband or lover who cheats.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
