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?

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.

To everyone saying to divorce him, there is not divorce! Since he was still married to his first wife, his second marriage is annulled and void, meaning it didn't ever exist. Now, she could sue him, and get everything of his.

how could he marry you then? but yeah divorce is probably big on your mind now just don't make a decision before you've heard his side

There are actually a few polygamy laws floating around (which states have it are beyond my knowledge) since marriage isn't covered by the federal government.

Polygamy is still illegal in Utah.. I live in Utah and know none. Even though I'm pretty sure it does happen in some rural areas.

Actually, if I remember my history correctly, there was a federal law passed making polygamy and bigomy illegal.

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.

Woah man, just calm down. no need to kill potentially several hundred thousand innocent people because her husband is a bastard.

Depending on your state, you can have him arrested for bigamy, teach the jerk a lesson, but not before you do a run on all his credit cards lol.

The law and religion are two separate things. Just because Mormons say they can have two wives doesn't mean they can legally get away with it.

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.

Mormons can't have two wives. At least it's not practiced anymore, but used to be when it was a newer religion. I should say there's a difference between the fundamentalist mormons and mormons.

Shut the fuck up about Mormons having multiple spouses. They don't generally practice that, fucktards.
