married for the first time, three times

He was married for 30 years and didn't know it.

Earlier this year, an unnamed man married his long-time girlfriend. They had been together off-and-on for nearly 20 years and felt it was time to settle down. The man, now 67, thought it would be nice if they moved to Sydney, Australia because that is where his wife had been born.

Unfortunately, their application to move was rejected-- because records showed that the man was married. He had married a woman from Arizona 30 years ago -- and didn't remember.

The man confessed that back in 1978, he was on vacation from his job as a cook on an oil rig. He was pretty much drunk for the whole 28-day vacation. He remembers that he met a "nice blonde woman" but had no recollection of marrying her. The two parted company after the 28 days, and had not seen each other since.

The man said that the "sky fell in" when he saw the marriage certificate complete with his signature.

This new revelation, of course, caused the man's most recent marriage to become annulled-- making his wife his girlfriend again. However, since authorities cannot locate the Arizona wife, the 1978 marriage has now been annulled, making his first wife not-a-wife.

Now, he is planning to marry his second wife- again.

Now we are waiting to hear from the first wife's lawyer, demanding delinquent support payments and alimony.
