(2) Any person, if that person's husband or wife has absented himself or herself from such spouse by being outside the United States, continuously for at least five years;
(3) Any person, if that person's marriage has been pronounced void, annulled, or dissolved by a competent court; or
(4) Any person, presently married, who believes, in good faith, and has reason to believe, that the marriage has been pronounced void, annulled, or dissolved by a competent court.
