What happens if someone got remarried without getting divorced first? 1 Answers as of June 13, 2011My friend just figured out that she is still married but her "ex"husband got remarried and now they want to be back together. My friend wants to know if the new wife can get him in trouble for bigamy or something.

Wow, that is a sticky situation. The husband/ex-husband is in a voidable marriage. In other words, his second marriage is not legal, but could be made legal if the divorce from wife #1 is completed. As for bigamy, that would depend on a few factors, did he know he was still married? What made him think he was divorce and is that reasonable?
