Can I marry twice?
Bigamy occurs when a person is married to two different people at the same time as part of two different marriage contracts. If a person is married, it is a requirement for him or her to have the marriage dissolved through death, annulment or divorce before he or she can legally enter into a new marriage.
What happens if you marry someone who is already married?
Bigamy results in an invalid marriage. If two people enter into a marriage when one of them is still legally married to someone else, the state will invalidate the new marriage. If a same-sex couple gets married but one spouse is still married to another person, the second marriage is invalid.
What do you call a person who marries again before getting a divorce?
Can you be engaged while married to someone else?
It is not illegal to get engaged before you get divorced, but you have to get divorced before you remarry. While it is not illegal to get engaged while still married, in most places, getting married while still married to someone else is called bigamy.
