I am a British citizen and got married two years back in Egypt. I moved to Spain right after my marriage, and my wife joined me in Spain on a spouse visa. The marriage is ending soon. Therefore, on my return back to UK:
Do UK officials have a record of me being married, or do I have to register my marriage first for it to be recorded?
If it is not recorded in the UK, can I get married in the UK again prior to my divorce from my first wife (since she left to go back to Egypt and that will take some time)?
If it is not recorded I would rather not go through divorce hassle and just carry on with my life back in UK and get married soon.
