Agence France-Presse (AFP), via Interaksyon.com, reports that Alan O'Neil, a resident of Pierce County in the state of  Washington, "is facing bigamy charges after Facebook suggested to his estranged wife that she should ’friend’ his new spouse." He is due in court on March 22.

 

The AFP report noted that O’Neil, whose original name was Alan Fulk, "married his first wife in 2001 but moved out eight years later, though neither filed for divorce." According to the sources cited in the AFP report, O’Neil changed his name in December (presumably 2011) and then married another woman later that same month.

 

The report detailed how O’Neil’s double life was discovered: "(The first wife) discovered the new woman in her husband's life when Facebook-thinking the pair might want to get to know each other-recommended her as a ’friend.’ Clicking on the picture, the estranged wife saw her husband with his new partner, dressed in smart clothes, next to a wedding cake." The first wife eventually contacted the authorities.
