Dear client,as per Hindu marriage act no person can marry if the first wife is already alive and proper divorce procedure not done,in your case your husband committed 2/3 offences simultaneously, first is 420 of IPC, in this case, he has not cheated to you only but to the society ,as well as bigamy etc.send him legal notice about these offences .
