In this day and age, it's completely acceptable to announce in the newspaper (or any other publications where this might occur -- a school alumni paper, a work newsletter, etc.) a second marriage. However, it is NOT appropriate to mention the first marriage at all. So leave out any "this will be the second marriage for Susan Kay Smith" statements. When announcing a second marriage, it's best to use the standard protocol for announcing marriages, if possible, i.e., "Mr. and Mrs. Robert Smith announce the engagement of their daughter, Susan Kay, to Justin Barnes, son of Michael and Deborah Barnes of Milwaukee." However, given that second weddings are often less formal than first weddings, it's also entirely appropriate to announce the wedding yourself, without the formalities of parents. For example, "Susan Kay Smith is to be married to Justin Barnes, of Milwaukee, in July." At that point, you can name parents and go into more details without the formalities of a traditional announcement. "Should you formally announce a second marriage?" Thanks for the tip! Happy New Year

It depends on whether yours was the first or second marriage. The first marriage is the valid one. If the person then married again without obtaining a divorce, the second marriage is invalid. The property acquired by the parties during the first marriage would be community property. If yours is the second marriage you should report the matter to the police and consult with an attorney.It depends on whether yours was the first or second marriage.

No. It's bigamy and the second marriage is void.

No. If the marriage was invalid to begin with (because of an existing marriage at the time of the 2nd marriage). The 2nd marriage is void and legally it is as if the second marriage never happened at all. Getting a divorce for the first marriage does not validate the second marriage. Your only option is to re-do the second marriage.

If you had a valid common law marriage in a state that recognizes common law marriage you may need to end that common law marriage legally in order to marry again. You should consult with an attorney. If you are legally married your second "marriage" would be null.If you had a valid common law marriage in a state that recognizes common law marriage you may need to end that common law marriage legally in order to marry again.

If your marriage was legally recognized in Lebanon you are legally married. See related link. If you try to ignore that marriage and marry again, your second marriage may be deemed invalid if evidence of the first marriage is exposed. You should seek legal advice.See related link.If your marriage was legally recognized in Lebanon you are legally married. See related link.

Bigamy is a crime but it is rarely prosecuted these days. Bigamy is "formally entering into a marriage while the previous one is un-dissolved". So that if one spouse remains married, and tries to enter into a second marriage, this is considered bigamous and the second marriage is declared void and grounds for an annulment. Therefore, one who knowingly enters into a bigamous marriage is guilty of the crime of bigamy. In practice however, bigamy is seldom prosecuted unless it is part of a fraudulent scheme to get another's property or to commit some other felony.

Your second "marriage" would have no legal affect. If you wish to have a ceremony in another state for some reason you should discuss it with the person who will be performing the ceremony and you must disclose that you are already legally married. You will not be issued a second marriage license when you disclose that you are already married. The second "marriage" could only be ceremonial.

If the second marriage was performed after the first wife died then the marriage is legal. However, if the marriage happened while the first wife was still alive (and still married to the person (ie not divorced)) then the second marriage is illegal even if the first wife is now dead.

No. Your second marriage is null and void if you were already married. You must have lied on your application for your second marriage license or it would not have been issued. You must obtain a divorce from your spouse and then marry your new spouse.No. Your second marriage is null and void if you were already married.

You should contact the local police department. It is a crime in most jurisdictions to knowingly marry someone else while you are still married to your spouse. In that case, the second marriage is invalid.You should contact the local police department.

AnswerWhy? The second state will recognize the first marriage. You can have a ceremony if you wish, as many times as you wish, but to get legally married you have to get a license and they ask you if you are currently married.It isn't like you would need to get two divorces.However, if the first marriage is a same-sex marriage, and the second marriage is in a state that doesn't recognize same-sex marriage, then the situation is much murkier. The state of the first marriage will treat the first marriage as valid and the second one as bigamous, but the other state will treat the first marriage as non-existent and the second one as valid.
