With all the money Reese has, why is her Mother so worried about her ex-husband's money. Don't they have enough ever.

Uh, it wasn't her ex-husband. They were never divorced. He just married another woman. Two wives are better than one?

I think you fail to see the point. Mrs. Witherspoon's main concern isn't the money. She has stated that, through everything, she still loves her husband, and she is afraid that this woman is only a gold-digger who is taking advantage of him. The amount of money that Reese has is completely irrelevan!

feel sorry for Reese.

I sincerely hope you're right. Maybe his real wife cares for him but can't live with him. And doesn't want to see someone(gold digger) using him for what money he has. Maybe she "thinks" he has more money than he actually does. Who knows.

babewalkingaround is absolutely right - pretend wife is NOT married to Mr. Witherspoon, because he was already married. Pretend wife has NO standing to get anything and their pretend marriage is void from the beginning

Ha ha ha! You're a publisher, right? English-speaking country? Yet you don't understand the difference between 'quite' and 'quiet' as in your banner line? Now THAT'S unsettling.

Bigamy is illegal in all 50 states because it is against public policy. Each state has the sole authorization to legislate marriage; not any religious organization, church or other group. You can have a church wedding, but there is a requirement that a valid marriage license must be issued by the state. In years past, some states have recognized common law marriages, where a man and woman lived together as husband and wife and held themselves out as such, yet never had a ceremonial marriage. This was more acceptable when there were fewer people and many lived "way out" in the country on farms. Now, most states no longer recognize common law marriage. (And where there is a common law marriage, there is no "common law" divorce). A divorce requires that one of the parties file a petition with the court requesting dissolution of the marriage, and it is only granted when a Judge issues an order of divorce, never by agreement or stipulation, etc.

Try telling that to the Romney's. They jumped the boarder into old Mexico, running from the law, where Mittens daddy was born! That makes Mitt Romney an Anchor baby! Let's see your birth certificate Mittens!

Sounds like someone may be going to jail. GL in prison Tricia

Unfortunately Tricia won't be going to jail - only Mr. Witherspoon commited a crime (bigamy)

well I hope the Witherspoons make out better than we did with our father's probate fraud

Thank you for posting this. My sister is on the road to doing something similar....except she's taking all the money before my parents die. Their will says 50/50 (there's 2 of us only), and if anyone sues the other, that sister is out entirely. However, 50% of 0 = 0. I actually don't even know what the will says, because my sister knows where the safe deposit box is, but I don't, her accountant is my parents' accountant's partner, my parents' new bank accounts are at my sister's long-standing bank, my sister has online access to their bank accounts, but I don't, (I don't know for sure, but she may masquerade as my mom online), and she just had them buy her a new house (with a large new mortgage - over $500,000). My parents' money is 0 mine, but it's also 0 my sister's. If she is going to get so much, and their original intent was 50/50, end of story, then why shouldn't I have parity?

You don't need to "annul" something that never existed in the first place.. legally. This women is not his "wife".. end of story.
10:18 PM on 05/10/2012
I don't think that's the point Mrs. Witherspoon is trying to make. She's trying to have it annulled so this "second wife" doesn't have access & leverage with the family's financials. From what the article states, she's simply trying to protect her family from "the other woman"..
11:45 PM on 05/10/2012
There is nothing to annul because they did not have a valid marriage since he was already married. The 'other woman' has no standing and no right to any assets

No, you have to annul it on the record, because the fraudulent marriage is on the record. With the marriage on the record, the crook can continue to defraud people, because there is no reason to challenge it. It has to be annulled on the record.

Uhhhh, she may love her husband but he doesn't live her. They haven't lived together in years and she considers him her husband, pathetic.

if they have never divorced, he is, indeed, still her husband.

Marriage is a contract, as soon as he slept with another woman the contract was broken, ergo no marriage except for the clueless, disillusioned woman who can't live without being attached to a man, any man. Pathetic IMO.
10:35 PM on 05/10/2012
he is her husband-until there is a legal divorce(decree) and it doesnt appear that either one of them ever filed....you dont have to live with someone to love them---people usually love their spouses their entire life if they have had children together.....

He slept with another woman, the contract is legally broken kinda like defaulting on a lease. Only a desperate woman who has to be attached to a man for her self worth would consider herself still married after her husband sleeps and lives with another woman. Naturally she's blaming the "other woman" and enabling her "husband"... "he's ill". These Type of "married couples" make me laugh. What's right for me isn't necessarily right for you, I understand that and so should you. It's called standards and mine are high, I expect greatness from the men in my life and that's what I get.

Wow, didn't Reese make a movie similar to this situation. You know " Sweet Home Alabama". Life intimating Art I guess.
10:01 PM on 05/10/2012
I was thinking the same thing lol
10:06 PM on 05/10/2012
In Sweet Home Alabama, Reese was only married to ONE person

If they are still legally married, then his marriage to the second woman is already null and void because it's not legal, anyway. She wins.

Hope they make out better than the Elvin Meek family did

Yet another reason why the only marriage law in this country should be you must be a consenting adult to get married. If a guy can get more than one woman to marry him, good for him. Let gays marry. Let people marry five people. As long as everyone involved is a consenting adult I just don't see what the problem is.
10:12 PM on 05/10/2012
You must consent and be a certain age to be married in every state already, and I agree with gay marriage, but you just have to be ignorant to think that anyone should have MULTIPLE spouses!! (And marriage laws are authorized by STATES, not by the country!)

You have to add "of sound mind". Insane people should not be able to marry. People who have been found to be incompetent to handle their own affairs, should not be able to marry without consent of the court. Have you ever met married people and wondered how could anyone have let them get married?
10:37 PM on 05/10/2012
oh gawd-isnt it already confusing enough?
06:53 PM on 05/12/2012
Then will it really matter if it gets a smidge more confusing?
