Legal Solutions For The Bigamist

Bigamy

Most of the legal solutions for bigamy are unsatisfying at best. They resolve legal issues of marriage only, not the emotional turmoil caused by the bigamist. Even recovery of assets is a long and difficult process for the person that has been betrayed. While many societies still consider bigamy a crime, it often goes unpunished legally. Morally, few bigamists are punished because they tend to move to a new place where their former lifestyle is unknown.
