From sptimes.com: Stetson University College of Law CrimProf Bruce Jacob discusses bigamy with regards to Rev. Ledell Adrice Carr, who had recently married a woman in 2007. It was later discovered in fact that he hadn't divorced his first wife of 32 years, and in the decades since, court records show he had asked three other women for their hand in marriage.
Bigamy isn't uncommon, said Bruce Jacob, a professor of criminal law at Stetson University College of Law."Sometimes, it's a kind of a technical thing when a person might think they have a valid divorce," Jacob said.
But, he added, "There are people out there that deliberately marry more than one woman and shuttle back and forth, or they marry one and leave her and marry again, without bothering to get a divorce."
