I have not heard anything like this. I just think you like to start gossip. Their marriage is nobody's business to share.
You are correct. She does not speak of HIM interferring with her marriage and NEVER did! Neither does her husband. Someone is a liar!

She is trying her best to keep them together.
Who is in court claiming this? Nearly twenty years ago, when becoming friends, he told her that he wouldnt want to interfer with her marriage (he meant by taking too much of her time). She said, you couldnt. And he hasnt. End of story. Except: who is the LIAR THIS time?

I repeat: WHO claims THIS? It is 100% totally a LIE. THIS whole disgusting ordeal isnt doing the marriage any favor though and it is time for it to end and for the guilty to pay for their crimes.

Your Honor: Do you know how you can tell they are lying? Their lips are moving. All of them. I suspect that is why they didn't want me there.

Do you mean the permanent deacons are aggressive or the priests? Honestly, you have to wonder about some of the deacons in the DOB.

She knows two permanent deacons. The last one she was acquainted with knew that her husband didn't care to socialize with others. He urged her to change him. She chooses not to do that; wouldn't change him and visa versa. And that deacon would never seek to hurt the priest-friend. The first permanent deacon she knew worked at the parish where she met the priest-friend. He was angry with the priest because he felt that the priest favored her friendship over his. He was NEVER, EVER told that she felt the priest friend was trying to break up her marriage. NEVER! However, she also feels that this deacon wouldn't try to hurt the priest friend. If the second (mentioned) deacon has claimed this, he is lying. She never claimed the priest friend was trying to interfere in her marriage. She knew this deacon 15-20 years ago. Why has her marriage AND her friendship with the priest lasted all of these years if what he claims was true? It is a lie!

Just in case the OBVIOUS isn't so obvious to all, the attempts to embarrass and humiliate her into telling lies regarding Father to discredit him didn't work. NOW, they are telling the lies themselves to try to discredit him. However, the woman survives and can and does ALWAYS tell the truth. The truth is, these criminals were caught and are very, very angry about it but they still haven't given up trying (lying) to discredit Fr. so he can't achieve that which has been offered (and given) to him. Give it up! Those who would do what you have done to me, would certainly lie to achieve any ends. You victimized the wrong woman. Give it up! You're toast.

Remembering: The second mentioned permanent deacon's mother, probably angry that her son felt Fr. preferred the woman's friendship over his, claimed that he (Fr.) wouldn't be liked by the people if they knew he was going after a married woman.
The woman in question (me), never felt that he was going after her. The deacons elderly mother made that claim. I can't help what other people think or say (I find out), but don't misquote me and say that I said that. I never did!!!

By the way, she has near-total recall: The deacons mother accused the priest on Thanksgiving morning, 1994...nearly 19 years ago, after Mass. The priest called her (me) at home and told me that I was going to be really upset at this news and then he told me what she said. I did, indeed, get very upset. He asked me what I was going to do. I told him the first thing I would do is get off the phone and tell (husband). I did. Husband said, "If you are going to be friends with a priest, you'll have to expect that people will say things about you." He then told me to get over it. He has always been in favor of my friendship with Fr. She also told Fr. during the phone call that she was thinking of pressing charges against the deacons mother regarding the lies. The deacon told Fr. that his mother didn't mean that there was something going on between us but that she was just upset because Fr. seemed to favor my friendship over his.
Funny, this hasn't made it into the accusations against Fr. I see that they are careful not to be slandering me but they are claiming that I made statements that I never made.
I can't stand a lie nor a LIAR!

This is somewhat reminiscent of the Secundo case: no evidence, no credibility in the eyes of the police and DA. However, with Secundo he admitted to doing something, just not sure what it was.

Apparently, he does not care about his image or reputation, and plans not to press charges like some other priests who create their own problems, and then blame others for it.
