In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

If you were forced to touch the Quran by your hand, but you did not utter any statement, then there is no harm. 
Brother anything that is forced is not valid in Islam. Every action should be made intentionally to be acceptable. If you are satisfied that you were forced to swear by the Quran then rest assured that action is invalid.
Make sincere taubah to Allah swt and honor your vows of marriage to the other lady. Do not divorce your second wife without a valid reason. You will be severely accountable to Allah swt.. You do not need the permission of anyone to marry up to 4 times. If you have married her then you are responsible for her upkeep completely. Your wife and your brother's wife will not be answerable for the zulm (transgression) that you will be doing to your second wife. So be a man and do the right thing.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
