My neighbor is a “second” wife and she has told me that the word “second” seems appropriate to her situation. At times she has felt that she was “second” to everyone in her new husband’s family. His children’s needs and wants, even those of his ex-wife, seemed to come before her own needs and wants

"I remember attending a wedding where a woman had to endure having her ex-husband’s new wife, someone who was responsible for the break-up of her marriage, seated in a place of honor at the daughter’s reception. That was not a happy situation and the new wife should have had the grace not to attend."You mean the daughter of the lady with the former husband? If that is the case, how could the daughter be so disloyal to her mother to do that? The mother should have immediately demanded that former mistress be sent home otherwise she would make a scene and leave. If it is not her own daughter, she should not bother attending.

What is wrong with you people? The grace not to attend her step-daughter's wedding? If she hadn't attended, people would have accused her of . It seems like maybe the daughter bride, who arranged the seating, could have arranged it more tactfully. Or consider that since it's her wedding and she arranged the seating, perhaps the new wife is important to her, and she wanted her in a place of honor, and if her mother cared about her, she should have been willing to suck it up and be gracious for a night to make her daughter happy on her special day.
