As long as the first marriage subsists the second marriage is 

illegal and not accounted in the eye of law. So, the status of Second

wife is not accounted.

Law does not permit. It is illegeal


law comes in picture when some body moves it . Karunanidhi has two wives and sons of each of them are ministers.

marriage is null and void.

she will not be legal hair of her husband.

but the issues will get full right as his first wife as well as on property ( self earned only).
