i put an offer on a property from a divorced couple and it was accepted from one of the sellers, but the other seller is not signing their half of the accepted offer. to make things even more interesting, the seller that won't sign had her boyfriend make an offer 500 dollars more than mine and she signed his offer. what rights do i have as a first time offer on this property?

I don't know how you found out how much the other offer was for, but if her boyfriend is really ready to buy the house, either you go higher, or he buys the house - the ex-husband should sign whichever offer nets them the most money. If that is from the new boyfriend, so be it.
The "first offer" has no rights to it. The first accepted offer does - that means accepted by all parties that need to sign. Until there is an agreement (by all), there is no agreement at all.
