Hell really hath no fury...

Wife Wins $9 Million From Husband's Alleged Mistress - ABC News

Cynthia Shackelford's story could have been no different than that of any other aggrieved wife: The North Carolina woman, 60, thought her husband Allan was deeply in love with her. Then came his late nights at the office and suspicious charges on his credit card and cell phone bills. And finally, a private investigator confirmed what she had feared: Her husband, she said, was having an affair.

But Shackelford's story has a $9 million twist. Under centuries-old North Carolina case law, Shackelford sued her husband's alleged mistress, Anne Lundquist, for "alienation of affection," charging that the woman broke up her 33-year marriage.

Last week, Shackelford won. A jury awarded her $5 million in compensatory damages and $4 million in punitive damages to be paid by Lundquist.

"She set her sights on him. ... She knew he was married," Shackelford said of Lundquist Monday. "You don't go after married men and break up families."

Wonder if that's a law in Florida. If so then Elin Woods should be able to collect at least a billion.:biggrin1:

No one can break up a good marriage. While I don't agree with cheating on your spouse and I have never done it - it is just as much his fault as it is hers - in fact if looked at - he is the only one cheating - she has no one to cheat on he does...........

It's a decision they made - not a smart one but why should the mistress pay for the hubby's cheating ways? How do you know she went after him? Maybe he relentlessly pursued her and she finally broke down? Two sides to every story.......
