Since I am not licensed in NY, I do not know of the ramifications, if any, for not disclosing the correct number of previous marriages on a NY marriage license. As it relates to NC, assuming you are a resident of NC now, there would be no effect on the validity of your marriage.
Under NC law, your husband’s marriage to Wife #2 would have been void as it would have been a bigamous marriage. As it relates to NC, assuming you are a resident of NC now, this would have no effect on the validity of your marriage as long as he was lawfully divorced at the time of your marriage to him.
To find evidence of divorces from the previous marriages, you would have to check the court records in the county and state that your husband was residing at the time or a county’s or state’s vital records department.
