My Divorce Wasn’t Final Three Days Ago? … Oops

A Canadian architect (Husband) living in the British Virgin Islands was in the process of divorcing his Wife of several years.

Husband’s divorce lawyer had reportedly told him that his divorce would be final on February 24th.

Based on that, Husband arranged to marry his pregnant Girlfriend on February 27th.

Problem is, the divorce was apparently running behind schedule.

Husband was still married to Wife when he married Girlfriend.

Rotten timing.

Husband is now charged with bigamy – and giving false information to a public servant.

Perhaps Husband should have checked in again with his divorce lawyer before taking his vows the second time around?
