I would like to know if there is a case against my wife's lover without including my wife (as in the case of adultery...).
You see, yes "it takes two to tango", but I sense that my wife was also taken advantage of due to the following reasons:
1. Wife is extremely emotionally/mentally stressed when the her lover courted her and asked her to go into the affair. He guised friendship as the means to be close to each other, where my wife shares her stresses (problem with our first and only baby, physical separation from me because of work). The lover knew that my wife was weak during the time.
2. The lover is a predator. His previous relationships before my wife was with a married woman. He left his relationship with my wife for another woman.
3. I can sue for adultery and am very sure I win. But I would not like to include my wife whom I know (objectively) has been psychologically manipulated and taken advantage of (...and discarded eventually...).
My wife is now psychologically broken because of the guilt and disbelief on what she had done.
As of now all I know of is about a civil case for damages under Article 26 Paragraph 2 of the New Civil Code of the Philippines (NCC) which describes...(2) Meddling with or disturbing the private life or family relations of another;
But this is just a civil case and its not about money.Is there a criminal case for this situation like something in RA 9262 or others?
I know of faster means of retribution but I'd rather try the straight path first.
Thanks for your help...
