They've committed bigamy, [i.e. The criminal offense of marrying one person while still legally married to another.] which in the USA and many other countries as being liable for up to 5 years imprisonment. This is disastrous for OP. Did his first wife know about her husband's marriage to you?
I don't understand why everyone is saying divorce him. As long as he is not seeing her or has no feelings for her it should be fine. Getting a divorce is expensive and he doesn't want to lose half of his stuff. Just because he is married to another woman doesn't mean they are still in love.
But it is illegal to be married to two people. Which means the OPs marriage is void leaving her without any of the legal benefits, such as taxes and insurance. She ca be sued for insurance fraud if the insurance companies find out. Better divorce him and sue his lying ass.
How is it legally possible for him to be married to two women?
What a coward. Take his ass to court and divorce that little shit.
No need for divorce since they're not technically married. Actually, this is either pretty ballsy, or and extreme lapse of memory commit bigamy with women living close enough to bump into each other while shopping. Most people outside of Utah at least try to have some distance between the two families.
It is illegal for everyone, but many FLDS do it anyway. They have ways of being discreet about it.. One is by only having one "official" marriage and leaving the rest common-law. As long as they're all consenting adults (not always the case) most people don't care enough to prosecute. Live and let live.
