Paddy McGuiness and wife Christine are forced to change two-storey extension plans at their £. m Cheshire home after neighbours say plans are out of character with area.

An earlier attempt to extend the house was opposed by their neighbours.

Peppered with quotations from second wives from coast to coast, this conversational and often funny book looks at the plight of the second wife in today's world.

From stereotypes of trophies, bimbos and homewreckers to often grueling day-to-day struggles of modern stepmothers, SECOND WIVES is an honest and thorough book about an important issue that affects millions of women. Lively writing and personal reflections touch on important circumstances, such as the blended family, the biased court system, the plight of the divorced father, the financial ramifications of child support orders and the deep feelings that millions of women share but never discuss.

Politically incorrect and fearlessly honest, the book examines phenomena affecting today's second wives, including the ex-wife from hell, the deadbeat mom, and even the challenges facing second wives in their golden years.

Above all, it is a call to arms. With more than 50 Internet resources and plenty of! information about advocacy groups across the country, SECOND WIVES implores readers to reach out and help change the sorry state of domestic relations.

SARAND
The only thing it doesn't cover or mention is the fact that husbands of second wives should stop enabling their ex's; then maybe they have to except the "real divorce", and the fact that they are no longer #1. I highly recommend this book if you are a second wife and my husband is reading it too (it has had positive impact on our marriage and his understanding of what I have been going through). Did I say you should buy this...you should.

Wow! This is the first book in my memory that I've sat down and read cover to cover as soon as it arrived! It was so gratifying to read about situations comparable to the ones I've been dealing with for the past four years regarding my husband's ex-wife. My husband agrees that chapter 7 mirrors his ex almost exactly. For anyone struggling with a difficult ex and/or stepkids, this book will really comfort you and make you laugh out loud at times (the author doesn't mince words!) A very satisfying book! The only negative feeling I had about it was the overuse of heavy sarcasm and hostility by the author...as a second wife who is also someone else's ex-wife, I couldn't agree with every single point the author made about first wives...some exes are OK. But if you're having problems with a nasty ex, you'll enjoy this book.

I'm sorry, but I think this book is very unfair. I just married a man who is divorced with 3 children. His ex-wife does cause a lot of the same problems talked about in this book. But this book seems to focus totally on the ex-wife being a total ***. I thought it would focus more on the feelings you go through being a second wife and how to deal with stepchildren. I was very disappointed. It made it sound like everything is the ex-wife's fault. I don't believe that to be true. A marriage takes two people to work at it. It's never just one or the other. The failure of my husband's first marriage was a combination of the both of them. Now of course his ex doesn't believe that to be true, and she takes every opportunity to remind him of that. But she cannot be to blame for all of the problems. Life is what you make it. This book paid entirely too much attention to the ex-wife. It was very disappointing.

I spent years dealing with the guilt and frustration caused by my husband's ex. I wish this book had been written 10 years ago. I would have understood my feelings were normal and I would have been able to deal with the stepkids better, knowing we were all experiencing the turmoil of putting a family together.
Second wives, stepmoms, even dads, will enjoy it and it'll make you laugh at yourselves sometimes, but, to paraphrase the author, we all need to laugh more and enjoy life while we have one to enjoy.

I think the topic that the author addresses is an important one & one which is often overlooked in the general concern over those involved in a divorce. Second wives & stepmothers often have a very difficult time of it, directly or indirectly dealing with the fears and insecurities of an ex-wife, the complications of shared custody or the complexity of lost custody, children who are having to adjust to something they didn't create or want, often, and so on. What disturbs me, though, and the paradox here, is the author's seeming inability to recognize that many 2nd wives are also ex-wives...how can they be such victims, on the one hand (as 2nd wives) and such witches, on the other (as ex-wives)? How can all ex-wives be so bad? Is it even remotely possible that the man the 2nd wife is married to used to have a good marriage with the ex, too? Or that the reason the ex is such a terror is because of the years of broken agreements, disappointments, failed attempts at closeness, and so on, that the 2nd wife may just not have gotten to yet? While I'm certain that the author comforts and reassures many a 2nd wife that she is not alone in her frustration and difficult situation---and she often is in a VERY difficult situation---what she also does, I think, is widen the gap instead of narrowing it. If both wives, past and present, were able to focus more on seeing each other as real women dealing with really complex situations and less as enemies or stereotypes, the frustration and anger would lessen. That's what this book fails to consider, and for me, it's a flaw that can't be overlooked because it turns the book into a hostile attack on ex-wives instead of a thoughtful examination of an often-painful situation.

Thank-you for a book that has been needed for an awful long time. I am a second wife and stepmother to four children. It will be 15 years this December. It has been an awful time with the ex wife. No matter what I do is wrong! Everything! It is so great to know there are other women who have the same problems. I carry the book around in my pocketbook. I have outlined parts that I need to read over and over. It is my support. Thank you again...when is the next book coming?
