If your husband remarried without first obtaining a divorce from you, then his second "marriage" is null and void. In other words, it is as though it never took place. In the eys of the law you are still his legal wife. If you no want to end your marriage, you should file for divorce, however due to the circumstances I wouldnot file on my own, i would retain a divorce attorney.
