With more than half of all marriages ending in divorce, the number of women faced with the prospect of becoming second wives is at a record high.  This compassionate and timely guide to remarriage mixes insights and advice from experts with interviewes with more than one hundred second wives. Barash tackles such issues as competition with the first wife, in-laws, stepchildren, and the financial strain of supporting two families.
