You’re an upwardly mobile manager and the date of your wedding is fast approaching. At the last minute you discover you’re already married. Becoming a bigamist because you got hitched for a laugh 20 years ago while visiting Las Vegas and out of your teenage head on peyote is going to look so great when angling for the next promotion, right Elena?
