  • Our Member Testimonials

    I joined SWC in 1999 because I felt like nobody understood what I was going through as a new stepmom.

    This website made me feel like I wasn't alone. It also became a safe place for me to release frustrations to people who wouldn't judge me or tell me I knew what I was getting into when I married a man with an ex-wife & children.

    SWC is a must for stepmoms / secondwives.” -- SM


    “I joined Second Wives Club in 2007 when I moved in with my then boyfriend (now husband) and we combined our families - three children for him and two for me.

    Without the wisdom and caring of the wonderful women on this site, I don't know what I would have done
    or how I would have navigated the confusing blended family waters.

    I can say now that my SWC sisters are some of my closest friends.” -- LK


    “I came to Second Wives Club when I was feeling alone and full of anxiety.

    This community has helped me feel as if I am a part of a real family and allowed me to share my thoughts, feelings and story with other women and allows me to feel as though I am helping others in my same situation.”

    -- J


    “I have been a member of Second Wives Club since 2000.

    I absolutely love this web site.

    The ladies here have gotten me through some very stressful times and kept me acting with my head instead of reacting emotionally.

    I feel this web site has helped me grow as a stepmom and as a person and I am truly thankful for all the wonderful women I have met here.”

    -- W


    “I came to Second Wives Club when we got engaged. He was the single, divorced father of young teenage son with emotional problems.

    I was looking for support, sympathy and suggestions for a soon-to-be full-time custodial stepmom.

    I got all of that and more, here at SWC. -- JJ


    We've been married a year, and I am able to come here for understanding and support that I cannot get from my family and friends.

    The only people who fully realize that being a stepmother is the hardest job in the world, are other stepmothers.”
    -- AK


    I chose to be a moderator because I wanted to give back to the community that has given me so much.

    I truly believe I would not have survived my first few years of steplife without my SWC sisters.

    I hope that my small contributions over the years have benefited other secondwives and stepmoms.” -- SC
