My first wife died last year... We were married in 1982... We sperated in 1983... I contracted a second marriage in 1986... I separated with my second wife in 1995... Can my second wife charge me with bigamy at present?

If your
1. first marriage was not legally annulled before your second marriage;
2. second marriage was not legally annulled before your third marriage;


If your answer is yes to number 1,you could have been liable for bigamy upon charge of any person. Because your first wife is dead already, it would be pointless for anyone to charge you anymore. Technically however, 2nd wife can still charge you for bigamy if she was innocent of your 1st marriage at the time she (2nd) married you. This is possible because your second wife is a victim of your criminal act.

If your answer is yes in number 2, you can be charged for bigamy by your second wife even though she was aware that your marriage (2nd) was bigamous.
Incidentally, 3rd wife can charge you also if 3rd wife did not know that you were married to 2nd wife.

Note that the 2nd marriage is voidable (void but must be declared void by the court so that you will be free from its effects). Since you did not ask for court declaration that it is void from the beginning, the elements of bigamy can still be proven.

your defense can be prescription of the offense if she has known about your first marriage for at least 15 years.

lhyse, while it may be true, in legal actions, what you need will be proof, not rumor.

if they are living together, a case of concubinage. if the infidelity is repetitive, psychological abuse against your husband. or a civil case against the woman for interference in your marital affairs.
