No it cannot. The subsequent dissolution of a first marriage cannot validate an invalid a prior second marriage. The fact is that in the eyes of the law your re-marriage was null and void, which means that it is as if it never took place. At this point, you will need to marry your "husband" again. Until you do so, you are both legally single.
