My husband had an "emotional affair" with a woman at work

My husband had an "emotional affair" with a woman at work after 23 yrs of marriage. Our children are older 22 yrs and 17 yrs. If you read the texts they read much more sexual. He accidentally sent an email message meant for her to my son away at college which in turn, he now is in intensive therapy for having to break the news to me, a week before his college graduation. I had to plead with my son to allow his father to go. I have two questions one since my husband and I are trying to work things out and I have been chronically ill with a rare disease for five years, currently on the mend,however my husband told this women extremely personal details about our family...about them and they are furious. I don't blame them I am too. My son wants to know if we can have a gag order put on her, whether I stay with my husband or not. The other thing my children want is her to be subpoenaed the mediators office where both my husband and her have a written apologies to them read out loud and given to them as well as a copy given to the mediator. Sadly my husband,who who basically walked on water to my children, I keep telling them to forgive him. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around? I keep trying to remind them that he is still their father, the man who was always their coach in sports, always took us on nice trips, however, we had extenuating circumstances with me being ill. They feel it's no excuse in our vows it says in sickness and in health and even with therapy they are both angry and my son especially is saying divorce him and collect a check and my daughter teary eyed agrees, saying we will take care if you Mom.. it's not their job. They need to make their own lives. So again,we are in Long Island NY..can We do what they want in hopes that they can confront this women and be done with it...or is it an impossible feat? Thank you Denise

I am recently divorced. My wife cheated on me with another

I am recently divorced. My wife cheated on me with another man. I have several witnesses that have seen their 'carrying on' over the course of several years. Do I have any recourse in suing the boyfriend for damages in Tennessee, since the law doesn't allow suing for alienation of affection in Tennessee? She received a sizable portion of my 401K and my pension from the finalization of the divorce. Since she is the one that cheated, I feel at least one of them should pay for my pain and anguish. If I can't go after her, can I sue him with any certainty of garnering damages. He also cheated on his wife to be with her. They (his wife) were divorced in 2013.
