USA recognizes a marriage as lawful without the need to register it anywhere. So you would be considered as married even without registering the marriage in USA, as long as the marriage was lawful in Jordan, and not entered under duress, fraud, and/or for someone who was underage or a polygamous marriage.
While your state may not know of the first marriage, it is still "legal." This means whatever marriage you enter into without first divorcing from your first marriage would be void ab initio meaning void from the beginning, and can be formally voided at ANY TIME.
So someone in your situation wants to divorce from the first marriage prior to marrying someone else.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
