May I suggest you speak to wife No.1 first? Maybe she knows, maybe she doesn't. There is nothing worse than a woman scorned, and if you don't care, everything you get, you deserve! :twisted:

Ok I am no expert on this matter but this seems to give some info on what you must do. Good luck.

How is the marriage process in Thailand carried out?
The marriage process in Thailand is fairly straightforward. For foreigners to get married in Thailand, they must first obtain clearance from their respective embassies. However, do note that different embassies have different procedures for providing this clearance. With the clearance, a foreigner can obtain an affidavit which states the name of the foreigner as well as personal details such as citizenship and legal freedom to marry. This affidavit will have to be translated into Thai and legalized pursuant to Thai law. When all the documents are in place, the administrative marriage can then be performed at the Thai district offices known as ‘amphur’ or ‘khet’.

How long does an administrative marriage in Thailand take?
Including the time involved in procuring affidavits from an embassy, having those documents translated and legalized, and having the marriage performed at a local amphur, the process can be completed in as short as 3-4 days. If there are complications such as back-ups in paperwork at an embassy, or different requirements for certain nations' embassies, the process could be prolonged.

The above described procedure is correct, but is for a legal marriage in Thailand. I doubt that you can have 2 wifes under Thai law, as the OP seems to want. Maybe he can under the muslim law at a mosque, but that would not be a marriage recognised by Thai law.
