We got legal advice at the time & were advised to move on and forget our marriage. Since we were broke & in college, we took her bad advice. I regret it now. "Just a piece of paper"- hah!!
We lived together from 1978-91. For years we filed income taxes as married, but I don't know when we began doing that. IRS says their records only go back to 1992 for me.
I never remarried, but he did. So does that make him a bigamist? He and I agreed verbally in '91 to just move on. He was an alcoholic whom I put through grad school (PhD) and then it was supposed to be my turn. But I couldn't tolerate the craziness anymore and left.
He traded up to a legal marriage in about '93 & they're still together, I think. My pressing this issue would be major trouble for him, but good for me. Advice?
