You are not legally married.  Your husband sounds like he committed bigamy. He cannot be married to two people at the same time.  If your husband was still legally married to Wife #1, your marriage is not legal.


Please contact a divorce/family law attorney in your state to go over any rights you may or may not have.  Try www.attorneypages.com and check his or her record at the Florida State Bar.
