When can you have two spouses?

In this post, Chris Staples talks about a new case (Blair v. Cooke) from the Ontario Superior Court which has said that for the purposes of making a claim for support against the estate of a deceased, the deceased could have two spouses at the same time. This is because more than one person at a time can fit the definition of "spouse" as set out in the Ontario law. Though most of us would logically think that we have only one spouse at a time, this case shows that the law may not agree with you. To read Mr. Staples' comments and the case itself, click here.
