    Default Is it Legal to Marry in the U.S. If You're Already Married in Another Country

    to be currently married in the USA and get married in another country?
    For financial and other reasons, it makes sense for my wife and I to stay married.
    For other reasons, I want to marry the woman who has really been my mate for years. She will never move to this country (I live alone and spend the majority of my time overseas) nor will she try and get healthcare, etc from the USA.
    I am new here. Not certain how it works. Just Googled, registered and posted.
    Thanks.

    Default Re: Is it legal

    Bigamy is illegal in the United States, and it is also illegal in most foreign nations.
