The illegal act of marrying someone while lawfully married to another. The bigamous marriage is considered void when it was entered into and may be annulled.
Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary
The condition of having two spouses at the same time. A marriage in which one of the parties is already legally married is bigamous and usually therefore void. In most states, if the bigamy was intentional, it is also a crime.
