New Question for Law Educator:I closed the last question out too soon, I find I have follow-up question concerning the same topic.Would you call a fraudulent marriage in which it is a false return of a pretended marriage and is also a false record of this pretended marriage "invalid" in a pleading?

I got married to my husband in a religious ceremony in maryland
I got married to my husband in a religious ceremony in maryland in 2012. He did not get a marriage license at that time but said he would get it in a few months. we have been living together, referred to each other as husband and wife in public, bought a house together as joint tenants and share a bank account where our paychecks go in and we pay the bills and mortgage. He is from pakistan and went there a week ago and within 5 days got married to a woman there in an official wedding ceremoney. Is that legal for him? will he be able to sponsor his new wife to the US? what about me. am I still his wife. does he need to get a divorce from me and what are my rights? He had earlier been married and divorced in pakistan and was in single status in his tax returns. I came to know later that he had gone to pakistan in 2010 and remarried his ex there but didnt tell me. then last year in september/ october he went to pakistan and divorced his wife. I came to know all this later.

I learned something from my current wife (my second marriage).
I learned something from my current wife (my second marriage). Until a conversation last week, she had told me she was married 2 times before – and that is what she put on the Marriage License (in Virginia). Last week she told me she was married one time before her ‘first' marriage. But it is stranger than that. She initially married her ‘first' husband in France, where she was brought up. At that time, he was already married in the US. He was a Canadian citizen and married a US Citizen ‘on paper only' to gain Permanent Residence status in the US. After the wedding in France they move to the US (Minnesota) and she gets married to another person ‘on paper' so she can get US Citizenship. Here is a timeline: (I will call my wife ‘M')1981: 'M' and Husband 'A' meet in Minnesota while "m" is on a vacation trip from France~1982: Husband ‘A' marries ‘Linda' in the US.1983: Husband ‘A' and ‘M' marry in France.1983 ‘M' comes to the US on a tourist Visa to live with Husband ‘A'1983: ‘M' marries Husband ‘B'~1986: ‘M' divorces Husband ‘B.' Husband ‘A' divorces ‘Linda.' Both now have US Permanent Residency1986: ‘M' and Husband ‘A' marry in Virginia2000: ‘M' and Husband ‘A' divorce in Virginia2002: ‘M' marries Husband ‘C'2010: Husband ‘C' passes away2012: ‘M' and I marry. On the Marriage License ‘M' put our marriage as her 3rd. It is actually her 4th. Since ‘M' and I have been married, I have supported her 100% (she stopped working 5/2012) including making all the mortgage payments on her house (I am not on the title to her house). I would not have married her had I known of this history and I am going to pursue divorce and will be contacting a local attorney. I am writing here to get some idea as to what I can claim as far as the property settlement is concerned.
My husband is a District Judge in the state of Idaho. He wouldView more family law questions
My husband is a District Judge in the state of Idaho. He would like to perform the wedding for my son (his step-son) in Superior, AZ (on 6/1/13). From what I've read online it says "Judges from courts of record", but does not indicate they need to be a judge in the state of AZ. Is an Idaho judge legally acceptable to perform a wedding ceremony in AZ under this definition?
