Re: Relationship question

I love your question.

The key part, in my view, is why NOT, and the answer is cultural, not logical.

There is a chance that the second wife helps raising the child to justify the attribution of step mother.

Or it can be used to stress the step mother is not the biological mother.

In Spanish (as spoken in Argentina at least), the child would be "hijo de la primera mujer" = son of his first spouse.

BTW, step mother as an attribution is decreasing steeply probably because of Cinderella and other sour examples.
