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, and I hope that my small
contributions over the years have benefitted other secondwives and stepmoms.
I joined SWC at a time in my life that was very frustrating. We had just
moved within a few hours drive of the x wife and the nightmare we were
living turned worse. I found a lot of support and some decent advice over
the time I have been a member. It has been nice to know that there are other
wives in similar situations as myself. Being a first wife and a second wife
I've been able to relate to both situations. SWC is a place I love to come
to when I don't want to bother my husband with the frustrations of his crazy
I love Second Wives Club. The women here are honest but kind and
straightforward without being judgmental. I feel like I can say anything
here. I like the advice I get, even when it is not what I want to hear.
I think SWC is a treasure, a real resource for those of us who NEED it, as I
have for the last several years. It probably saved my marriage!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. 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 - because the only people who fully realize that being a stepmother is the hardest job in the world, are other stepmothers.
