Havre, MT asked in Criminal Law for Florida

Q: Can I press charges

I slept with a married man a few weeks back and he ended up going home to his wife on the other side of the country. We continued our relationship long distance. His wife found out and be told me that he was leaving her for me. I drove 8 hours out of state to pick him up at an airport that he told me he was flying in to. When I got there, he was not there. His wife called from his phone and told me that he was not coming. I took two days off from work to go pick him up and he stood me up. Can I press charges against them?
