Legally, second marriage is illegal and hence the second wife has no status in the eyes of Law, so far as Hindus are concerned.
However, children of illegal and legal marriage both have same rights.
As such, in case of partition, all the said 5 children will have equal share.
Anyone can bring in a partition suit for the same.
