Q. What are the exceptions to bigamy in Oklahoma
A: Bigamy is a felony in the State of Oklahoma. Bigamy happens when someone marries a person while still legally married to someone else. Often the perpetrator will do everything in their power to hide or lie about the previous unresolved marriage(s) to the new spouse, their previous spouses, and law officials. Although, the act of Bigamy is a felony crime in Oklahoma the process of marriage is severely flawed to prevent such crimes. When applying for a marriage license in Oklahoma the applicants sign attesting that they are able to marry one another. Currently, there is no assurance to the “new” spouse that this statement is not fraudulent. If the United States of America maintained a Centralized Marriage Registry – there would not be victims of Bigamy.
