quesCan re marry as first wife live in village and we have no relationship

Hi. I am married few years ago by Hindu tradition and my marriage was not registered. Now she lives in village and I am in city and we have no relationship. Now can I marry in court? Do I need any document from her what she agree? By documents I am single.

  • ansIf your first wife has all the legal documents for your marriage such as photograph, wedding cards, certificate from temple or pandit, then you cannot marry in the court because  during the lifetime of your wife if you re marry  then you could be held liable for  committing bigamy and adultery.

    Further your second marriage will be void.

    Hence suggested that you seek divorce from first wife and re marry.

  • ansDear,
    As you yourself admitted that you are married so definitely there are some evidence available for the same. But if your documents shows your status as single it reflects your malafide intention to cheat someone and its a crime itself. Now come to the next query i.e. to marry with another woman: dear without taking divorce from the first wife whether you have any relation to her or not is bigamy and a punishable offence in the eye of law.
    OPINION: I suggest you to opt for mutual divorce if possible and then proceed for 2nd marriage.
