If you shot an unarmed husband who was irate because he caught you nailing his wife, you would probably be charged with murder. I would expect the jury to compromise on a manslaughter conviction.
Takes some Gonads to shoot a man while your nailing his wife. that is just wrong on so many levels
Great privilege comes with great responsibility.
He had better be armed and you had better be bleeding if you don't want to go to prison.
It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
When you do wrong, whatever befalls you as a result is the price you have to pay. Shoot the guy? How about begging for forgiveness?
Won't you gimme three steps, gimme three steps mister, gimme three steps towards the door.
I wouldn't have burst in and beat you with my fists; I'd have just burst in, shot you and moved on.

It really isn't funny.... and people shouldn't make assumptions......
I'm single and was going out with this one woman, and on about the 8th -10th date she said something that really caught me weird, and I probed about that comment until she admitted to me ..... she was married. She had been telling me the entire time she was single, and there was no reason to doubt her.
The "other" guy, may not know ... he's "the other guy".
I'm always amazed anyway, blame the one that's married to you...... they are the one who cheated on you, not the other person.
If some buy busted in with a gun in his hand, and I didn't have any idea who he was, I would be totally justified in shooting him.

If your messing with a married woman, you deserve to get your a$$ kicked. Don't mess around with married women.
A guy stuck his head into a barber shop and asked, "How long before I can get a haircut?"
The barber looked around the shop full of customers and said, "About two hours."
The guy left.
A few days later the same guy stuck his head in the door and asked, "How long before I can get a haircut?" The barber looked around at the shop and said," About three hours."
The guy left.
A week later the same guy stuck his head in the shop and asked, "How long before I can get a haircut?"
The barber looked around the shop and said, "About an hour and a half."
The guy left.
The barber turned to a friend and said, "Hey, Bill, do me a favor. Follow that guy and see where he goes. He keeps asking how long he has to wait for a haircut, but then he doesn't ever come back.
"A little while later Bill returned to the shop, laughing hysterically. The barber asked, "So where does that guy go when he leaves?"
Bill looked up, tears in his eyes from laughter and said,

In Texas you can't use force in a situation where you provoked the attack.
I would venture to say that sleeping with someones wife in their bed is provocation. Of course you have to look at the scenario this way. Your in bed with no clothes on and the husband comes home. If he is a daily carrier your probably going to get shot before you can get to your pants. Just something to keep in mind.(4) if the actor provoked the other's use or attempted use of
unlawful force, unless:
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

I learned two weeks ago upon my need to visit MS that they have on the books an exclusion to homicide as being justifiable if a person while in the heat of passion kills another.
As well in my own state of residence (MA) where adultery is in the statute as being unlawful; Depending on conditions (where are you located; A motel(neutral), your home or the attackers home) you per se as the 'victim' _could_ (not guaranteed would) have some ground to stand on as related to defense of self being lawful in immediate threat counteraction.
Reference your own state laws for more on this.
Like most everything else in relation to life, living and law...It likely is not generic as a position but rather specific to state laws and possibly even local bylaws.
