Got married this spring, found out a few months later that

Got married this spring, found out a few months later that my divorce wasn't final so obviously that meant I had two wives..... Contacted my attorney, divorce is now final. My new wife and I continue to live together and consider ourselves married.... are there any legal ramifications we could incur because of this? The prior marriage is dissolved - do we really need to annul our marriage and get married again? There are NO children involved, no spousal support, no outstanding financial obligations.

My Boyfriend who is a Saudi student who is here on VISA and

My Boyfriend who is a Saudi student who is here on VISA and a scholarship from his government and I am American citizen wish to get married. Since he is on a scholarship we can not have a marriage approved by KSA and if we did he would risk losing his scholarship. Our question now is can we marry in the US? And if we do marry here, will KSA or the embassy be notified? We want to marry because of our moral beliefs so any marriage, so long as legitimate, would satisfy us.
