My first marriage took place in 1993, but my wife had previous marriage prior to 1993. We got separated and in 2002 I got married again the second time to another woman.

Was the first marriage valid? What will be the status of the second marriage? Would I be charge for bigamy?

Thanks in advance for the advice...

The first marriage should be judicially declared void ab initio. The second marriage is void since the first marriage is still subsisting.

By contracting a second marriage without the first being annulled, you can be held liable for bigamy.
