Trophy Wife

It was a real shock to me when he said it. I was having one of my bad days, one of those days when I refer to the ex- as The Faerie Prince – and my friend stopped me short.

“I used to date a lady,” he said, “who was divorced for the same reason you are. I figure, when those guys do marry, they pick out a Trophy Wife for themselves. You might want to think about that.”

Trophy Wife? MOI?????   But I thought about it, and I dug out some old photos, and I thought of the few other women I know who were in this position, and … you know what?

He was right! My friend was right! We are Trophy Wives!
