No, you cannot sue their spouse. You may be able to sue the estate, particularly if the estate was enriched by the crime. Cases of embezzlement come to mind as a possibility.

No, you just have actionable cause for a divorce based on their actions & perhaps other civil against the spouse.

There is no need to sue your spouse, but you do have the right to file for divorce and in some states half of what he owns will go to you if you have the right lawyer.
