ORLANDO, Fla. (MyFoxBoston.com) - Miltha Plaisimond, 57, was sitting in church in April listening to her pastor announcing new marriages during the announcements portion of the service. It was then that she found out her husband of 21 years, Patrick Celicourt, was married to another woman, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

"When it became time for the announcements on the altar, they announced that my father 'Patrick Celicourt' was newly married to another woman while still being married," the couple's daughter wrote in a Sheriff's Office report. Plaisimond later found a marriage license issued a month prior bearing the names of her husband and another woman, according to The Sentinel.

She brought copies of both marriage licenses to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, leading to the arrest of Celicourt on charges of bigamy and making false statements, the Sentinel adds.

It is unclear whether the pastor knew of the original marriage at the time of the announcement, the Sentinel reports.

That almost seems like a situation you would read about in a Molly Harper book And One Last Thing or in the Sweet Potato Queens series.

Did he lie on the Florida ML application?

Oh, Florida...

Where else would someone try to lead a double life in one town?  Also, that church must have been huge if the pastor didn't know that one of his congregants was married already.

Well, that's a way to find stuff out.

I'm confused. If this is her church, you would think the pastor would know her husband, and wouldn't marry him to another woman. This is like something out of the twilight zone

Is it her husband or her father?

I live in Orlando. It wouldn't be hard to lead a double life. It's a big enough city people tend to stay in their own area of town except for the work commute. We have a few mega churches too and I wouldn't expect the pastor personally knows thousands of people.

Quoting Rhodin:
