I had to google it:

Step-wife is the woman that has married your Ex-Husband.

or, reciprocally,

Your husband's ex-wife.

BILL ~ Ooops! That was supposed to be SM -- or step-mother ... :lol: I always use this when referring to my step-mother (my mother passed away; and my Dad remarried). I'll go and fix that, thanks!!! :D

Well, now you have me thinking about it -- maybe I should leave SW in too, as I'm sure there are people here who have EX's who are re-married (we have some SW's in our family).

BTW, I didn't realize that a step-wife could be both of those you mentioned; we learn something here every day. ;)

Wouldn't that be "Sucker"?
