Sorry that's an enormous stretch.
That a woman would not know for several years... whether her husband was living or dead, even when he filed suit against her.
Come on. That's got to be one of the silliest things I've ever heard.

Joan's marriage to Alan was bigamous ?



I'm not claiming anything. I'm stating that nobody has yet found

Yes- unlawful marriages, including bigamy happened, especially during

chaotic periods when nobody was sure who was alive and who was dead!
