Basically no. However, the length of a marriage can affect a spouse's right to private pensions, SS benefits and so forth.

My husband did not divorce his first wife before we married what do I have to do now?

Because your husband did not divorce his first wife then you are not legally married. There is a Statute of Limitations in difference States and if you have been married for several years then most likely the marriage would be void. However, you need to sit down with your husband and tell him he because he did not get a legal divorce he needs to look into it and if he is does not then you are not staying with him the way things are.
