The story of serial bigamist Ed Hicks airs Friday, May 18 at 10 PM. As many of you know, I was married to serial bigamist Ed Hicks, and as a result of my personal experience with bigamy, I began this blog in September 2005. Working together with the wife before me, Julie, we ensured that Ed Hicks was slapped with the toughest sentence ever handed a serial bigamist in the state of Virginia.
