Kansas Man Allegedly Had 2 Wives in Same Apartment Complex

Friday , March 20, 2009



A Kansas man faces a bigamy charge after allegedly being married to two women who lived in the same apartment complex.

Charles L. Clemens Jr., 61, of Overland Park is charged with bigamy and other felonies, according to authorities.

Officials say police were called to the complex in November when the second wife went to first wife's apartment to confront Clemens and found out he was married to someone else.

Clemens was arrested this week and made his first court appearance Wednesday.

Erickson says Clemens married his first wife 22 years ago. Court records say the second marriage occurred in January 2006. Both women are in their 50s.

Clemons is also charged with using his father's Social Security card to lease one of the apartments and with stealing jewelry and money from his second wife
First, I'd like to point out the idiocy of trying to date two women at the same time who live in the same apartment complex, let alone being married to two women, in the same apartment complex. Secondly, this raises a question for me: if the marriage laws are either changed or abolished altogether, (thus allowing for bigamy/polygamy) what recourse would these women have?
