Already Married


#1

Dear Lostinthesauce,

Your wife needs to get divorced, and then remarry you to make your marriage valid. Bigamy is a crime that has no defenses, but unless her first husband makes a big deal out of it, she probably won’t have any problems.

Good luck,

I’ve discovered my wife is still married to another man. I am in the military and I do not want to get her in trouble and definitely not get me in any trouble. How can I go about this without getting anyone busted for bigamy?[V][?]
