Having one is ok, but having two is not. However, Richard had no trouble until he went from having two to having one

The "one" and "two" are objects?
Is Richard a real person? A man? A boy?
Is his trouble a matter of life or death?
A legal trouble?
Anything about health?

An attribute of some sort associated to a human?
Like an address?
Polygamy involved? Are they people? (Children? Clients? Masters?)

Went from having two to having one: does this mean losing one? Or ceasing to have one? Does one disappear/leave/quit/similar?

Is "having" a possession or similar direct relationship? Such as, a man having a son? Or a recurring event, such as having two meals a day, or having easter once a year?

So a man "went" from having two wives to having only one.
Was he initially allowed to have two wives by his religion/culture?
Did he get in trouble because of the way he "went" from two to one? Like if he had killed one of his wives?

Is the man living in a region or a country where polygamy is the rule?
So that, having now "only" one wife, is he considered out of law?

I have a feeling that the trouble he gets in is not similar in nature to the trouble one could normally get in for being polygamous.
Is the trouble actually
being out of law?
being in danger of physical harm or death?
being put on the blacklist by some society?
losing some privileges?

Would he be in the same trouble if he remained with his OTHER wife?
Would anyone else having two wives and going to having one get in the same trouble? Is there anything about the person relevant? About the wives?

It seems I was wrong, but just for completeness' sake, what I meant was that the way one would usually get in trouble for having two wives was not the same way Richard got in trouble.

Can I call the lost wife Louise and the remaining wife Roberta?
Was Louise murdered? If so, by Richard? By Roberta?
Did she die of natural causes?
Did she die in an accident?

If Louise was still alive, but, say, divorced from Richard, would he still have gotten in the same trouble?

Was it her actual death which caused problems? Or more procedures like hospital records, registering the death, arranging the funeral, paperwork generally?
Were taxes involved? pension? some other financial benefit?
Was Roberta directly involved in the trouble? in causing it? did she know about it at all?
Did the two wives live in the same town? county/state? country?
Is Richard's work relevant?
Did he finish up in jail? with a fine? without some source of income which he had previously received? was his loss in the future - e.g. Roberta was rich and he had hoped to get money through her?

Did he keep in touch regularly with Louise? Did he see her? Talk to her on the phone? Communicate with her by other means (internet?) ?

Did he find out of her death shorly after?

Relevant why Louise wouldn't mind having a husband that doesn't live with her at all?

Was he lying to her? For example, saying that he's on tour?
Did Louise have any other husbands? Did Roberta?

Did somebody else inherit Louise's small fortune? Did Richard inherit anything at all?
Is the inheritance relevant something different than money? Is it covered by the word "fortune"?

Is Richard's legal status relevant? Is he legally married to both ladies? To Louise only? To Roberta only? To neither?

The word "inheritance" is misleading because:
it carries the meaning of a legally executed will/testament?
it usually refers to money or assets, and in this case it's about something different in nature?
it implies that it was Louise's intention for Richard to get it?
it implies that Louise was aware that Richard will get it?

Are there any legal issues that prevents Richard from receiving whatever is in the will? Did he want it?
Was Richard aware of the will? The content?
Did a lawyer person try to contact Richard about the will? Did he talk to Richard or Roberta?
Was there a third person doctor/coroner/police/relative who contacted Richard/Roberta when she had died? Did they have problems finding him?

Does it consist only of money? Is the amount relevant?
Was his trouble caused by trying to cash it in? Or by some consequence of this action?

Did anything of importance happen to him or the money just after he got them? Such as he was robbed, he died, he told someone, the wrong person (other than Roberta) found out about the money, Roberta found out?
After receiving the insurance money, is the insurance company out of the picture?
Are there any detectives or investigators involved?

**********SPOILER***************

Based on a true story from 2005:

Roberta, married to Richard since 1964, found an extremely large deposit when looking at her bank statement and contacted the bank for details on the transaction. The bank told her that it was an automatic deposit from a life insurance company. She contacted the company and found that her husband had taken out a life insurance policy on his wife, Louise, married since 1985, who had just passed away. Obviously this wife was someone other than her! Furious, Roberta contacted the police, who after an investigation found that Richard had indeed been married to both women, and thus arrested him for bigamy.
