Dear sir

One of my friend remarried after getting  divorce from his wife. At the time of divorce they had a male baby. In the 2nd marriage he didn't have any issue and there is lots of misunderstanding with the 2nd wife and both of them are not living together for a period of 3 years. the girl he married second is already a divorcee(exparte divorce given by her ist husband).

My friend wish reunite with his first wife. Is it possible to live with his 1st wife without settling the 2nd wife. what is to be done in this case.

Can you please advice.

Thanks and regards

malini

stupidly he has given his ist wife name in all his documents i.e from passport to lic.

In the name of meeting his child he can do so but once he had written in divorce agreement that whole rights of son will remain with his first wife so he has to wave this point through court and get the visiting right after that no one can made any objection but first wife will never get status of his wife untill he got divorce from her second wife.

I think he want to remarry with first wife. Then he can get divorce from second wife and can remarry.

Malini ji, First of all, you make it clear that no act like settling with a divorced wife or meeting child because he is his son is entertainable without a legal right. Yes, his second wife can sue your friend for maintenance if she comes to know that he is neglecting to maintain her, coz, she is the legal wife now. Your friend has to seek permission by the court if he wants to see his child or keep son with him. He cannot act according to his whims and fancies.

Malini ji, even if your friend wants to live with his first wife, he has to get legal divorce from the second wife and then marry his first wife again.

Why should doubt arise in your mind? Your friend wants to marriage the 1st wife or x or y or z while his legally wedded wife is living. This bug should be removed from his mind. No divorce, no marriage.

He wants? What is the value of his want? Does his 1st wife also want and is the second wife ready for divorce? Remember in giving divorce, aliminony and maintenance may make him pauper.

I think living with any woman without getting married (e.g. live-in relationship) is not adultery.

Malini ji, the first wife can choose to have live in relationship with him. the present wife cannot sue her as the first wife is a divorcee now. Regarding the status of first wife, if she has live in relationship with your friend for considerably long years, she will have property rights over his property. Her son is the legal heir to his property anyway. Live in relation cases have come before the courts regarding property issues, and SC has considered that a woman who is in live in relationship with a man will have rights over his property.

 The second wife can't do a thing. There is complete freedom to live with anybody. As rightly pointed out by Ms. Suchitra, live-in relationship, except for legally wedded wife, gives total protection and right of inheritence.
