It is legal to marry more than once, but illegal to married to more than one person at a time. You must divorce before you can marry again.

Not at all, it is perfectly legal to have multiple wives. You can look it up in the law books under the Ron Jeremy Federal Harem Act of 1973

Illegal unless you get divorced from your previous spouse first

It depends on what you are talking about here. If you get married, and divorces before marrying another person, it is perfectly legal for you to do that but, if you are married and is not divorced or you just abandoned your partner and went and married another person, you havve committed an offence in the eyes of the law known as bigamy. So, it is an offence to do that.

If you are married to more than one person in most western countries it is called bigomy. Muslim men are allowed to marry 5 woman from memory.

Most people with the divorce rate so high are married more than once. Most states allow up to 7 marriages in a lifetime. If you are referring to marry the same person, you can marry and divorce them more than once.

Only if you don't get a divorce in between them...


Junebug
It is against the law to marry again before getting a finalized divorce. If you marry for the second time before getting a divorce, the second marriage is considered null and void.


LuciaLaLa
You can only legally be married to one person at a time in the United States.

It is illegal unless the previous marriage ended in divorce and you have proof of the divorce.
