Reluctant Groom Sets Hotel on Fire

A man in Japan was arrested on suspicion of arson after the hotel he was scheduled to get married in was set on fire. No one was injured in the early morning fire at a resort hotel in Yamanashi Prefecture.
Tatsuhiko Kawata, 39, had gone along with wedding plans despite already having a wife, the Yomiuri newspaper said.

"I thought if I set a fire I wouldn't have to go through with the wedding," the Yomiuri quoted him as telling police.

He should have just said "No." Link

I understand that arranged marriages are still sometimes made in Japan. But Are multiple marriages allowed in Japan? Seems like he had the perfect get out of marriage card right there, just show them proof of being married and they couldn't do anything about it.
