Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
No, it is not smart at all. A spouse has far more potential rights than a fiance. While your new spouse may not be a guardian, your past spouse generally cannot bar access to your new spouse unless that person is 'unfit'. So hiding a marriage is unwise, especially because doing so may create a claim by that person that you are not acting in good faith by failing to disclose all relevant information.
