There is no cause of action in most states for Alienation of Affection so the answer is likely no. If your husband started an affair that is between you and him, not a 3rd party. She didn't force him to start the affair.
You can ask a Minnesota lawyer but generally the answer is that there is no such cause of action any longer.
No but you can sue your husband for divorce. Not illegal to have a mistress or go after your husband.
Providing general answers are meant to help the poster to understand some complex legal concepts and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship.
I am afraid not. There is no cause of action for alienation of affection allowed under Minnesota Law.

Hello. A general reply only is that odds are low and remote but full facts, particularly of the harm, the damage, would need to be known and if appropriate, careful study of existing law would need to be done.
I also note to you that what your spouse is choosing to do, and what you are choosing to do, are critical.
As appropriate, I urge you to consider choosing and conferring with a qualified & well exp'd att'y at this time, IMO pref' one with many yrs. of prof'l work in family law (and a member of the our MN State Bar Assn Family Law Section of att'y prof'ls).
