Is it true that, if I were involved with a married woman, and didn't know she was married, her husband could sue me?

If this is the case, then doesn't that mean a husband and wife team can seek out wealthy individuals, get involved, and later sue?

I mean, you just KNOW this has been thought of.

There are plenty of stories and case law in Google.

I think the person has to know the individual is married. The two most high profile cases I can think of in the last few years was when Elizabeth Edwards threatened to sue Hunter and/or Andrew Young over John Edwards affair and singer Fantasia Barrino being sued by the wife of a married man she was seeing.

Here is a case where someone won $9million
