    Answered . First, I'm sorry about your husband, that's a really terrible thing. Second, this isn't really a legal question. Of course, you can tell her husband, but I would recommend going to see a divorce lawyer first. There's no practical reason to tell her husband (other than payback for the pain you are suffering) and she might (I emphasize might) have a defamation claim against you . Go see a divorce lawyer.

    Answered . If you are considering divorcing your husband, there is likely no benefit to telling your the husband of your husband's mistress about the affair. But, every case is different, and there may be relevant information that could be gained from the mistress's husband.
