Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

.

She has zero grounds to sue you because you have nothing to do with their marriage breaking down. She could only sue you if you were actually the cause of the breakdown if you were engaging in sexual relations with him and were actively encouraging him to leave an otherwise solid marriage and she can prove it.

.

So she is just mad and blowing off steam and is directing her anger at you rather than at her spouse.

.

You have nothing to worry about here.

thanks
