It's not illegal not to mention it, although it's possiblethat the marriage (if your spouse finds out about it) could have the marriage annulled. Marriages and partnerships can be declared invalid because of:
If it's material that you were not married before, or there's a strong inference as to that fact, it's possible that an annulment could be sought.
It's not illegal to not mention it, but it's possible that there could still be ramifications.

Thank you for your answer, I would like to know one more thing please.
I noticed that anyone can search my records just by googling my name, they will be able to know if I was married or not, is it legal for the state to have my record available for everyone, is there anyway that I can be sure that these information not available online by the state of texas?
While there IS a way, it's very difficult. That is, these are public records, and the general policy is that court proceedings and records are public. Only if there is good cause to "seal" them would that be something that could be made private.
And even in that situation, records already in the hands of private companies would not be collected.
(that is, not made private)
The only thing that sealing does is seal the public records from the date of sealing onward.
Further, you would really need to show some very compelling reason for privacy (such as trying to avoid an abusive ex spouse, etc...). Keeping information from a new spouse / friends / etc... would not be a compelling enough reason.
