Bigamist gets nullity

Bigamist gets nullity

In these days of relatively easy divorce, it is hard to think of anyone committing bigamy. However, a  bigamist recently obtained a nullity order from the Family Court. In the case, Mathus and Pews, the husband remarried in 1986, 3 years after meeting wife number two. The marriage certificate said that he was divorced. That was untrue. The husband married  wife number one in 1975, separated from her in 1979 but only finally divorced her in 1995, 9 years after remarrying.

Justice Dawe, granting the nullity, found that the second marriage was void.
