A: Well you could divorce that person who is trying to commit bigamy or polygamy which both are prohibited in the United States. BE as it may, you need to consult with a family law attorney of your choice regarding your immediate legal choices. Good luck to you.

A: Not sure if this is an immigration question. There is nothing you can do at this point to stop him. Specially if this behavior is in a country were it is legal to have more than one wife. If he were to marry a second wife, according to US law that marriage is invalid from its beginning.
