The marriage can be registered once between two individuals. In case, you now want to register it again you shall have to get the first marriage annulled by a Court of Law and only then the marriage can be registered again.

There is no need to hide this important information. You should share this information to a person who is very close to you and your family members. Let them understand the issue. After understanding the matter, they can easily get convinced that there is no need to get registered again.
