Bigamy

My husband (going through a divorce with me but it's not been finalised)has just married another women 2 days ago. I know that it's bigamy but is his other marriage void by law? Can you be married to 2 people in England at the same time? Would he actually have to marry her again once divorced from me? We still have joint finances, mortgage etc

It's illegal, I think that it does make his new marriage void. Why couldn't he wait until you're divorce was finalised? He could get into a fair bit of trouble for that!

It is illegal, report him to the police.

Your husband is a bigamist. He has married before the divorce is final, that is illegal. He is not legally married to his new "wife
You or your solicitor need to report him to the police asap

What an idiot. Is he expecting you to join in his illegal activities and lie for him?

What do you want to do now? How are you feeling about it all?

Did they get married here or abroad?
