I think in NYC one can get a marriage record for free if you are looking for your own record or for your parents if they are both deceased.

Absence from marriage records in 49 states is no guarantee that a person was not married. In fact, Americans can be married in most other countries with little difficulty, and the marriage is considered legal and binding in the USA. There is no general registry of marriages. The US consulate will perform the marriage, if local laws cannot accommodate the marriage of foreigners. I have an American friend who married a British wife in the US consulate in a third world country.

There is virtually no way to detect bigamy in the US, unless somebody blows the whistle. Bigamy often arises only after the man dies and two or more women make a social security claim.

I have a friend who separated from her husband, and never bothered to get a divorce. Then she read his obituary in the paper, which claimed that he was survived by another subsequent wife.
