how i got married in poland (2) the hearing
A week after getting back from Minsk we had to show up for a hearing with a judge. This was going to be the ultimate test of our to each other. Not surprisingly, it had my stomach . It wasn't like I had nothing to hide. I'd been married once before, back in the States. Even though it turned out to be a complete and the marriage only lasted a few months, if that, I was supposed to it, prove that it was all over and that I was free to get remarried.
But in the end we decided to ignore the divorce papers because they were way too complicated and besides they might some proof I just couldn’t any time soon. The fact is that I had absolutely no idea of how to get in touch with my ex-wife. I didn’t even know for sure if she was still alive or not. So the worry on was, if they ask me if I’m divorced, would I have to lie? Because that would really bother me.
To say I was over this would be an understatement. I went on whether to or keep quiet and hope for the best. In the meantime Monika was getting tired of me that in America, even if we were both foreigners, we could have gotten married within a single day. in Las Vegas you can tie the knot a number of times in a single day and a couple honeymoons for good measure.
