Under the eyes of the law, your "marriage" is null and void. That is, it is as if it never took place. The fact is that a person can only have 1 spouse at a time. Since your "husband" was already married at the time of your wedding, then he was not legally able to enter into a valid marriage with you. Assuming that his divorce is now final, you are free to get married.
