My mother was married before I was born, then got divorced, married my father, and had me. Is there a term for my familial relationship to my mothers ex-husband?

    He's "your mother's ex-husband".... there isn't a more specific term. – AndyT Sep 18 '17 at 16:35

    @AndyT “Too specific to exist”? This is an extremely common situation which millions of people are in. If Aimee had been a child of the first marriage, then her mother’s second husband would almost certainly have been her stepfather. The fact that she happens to be a child of the first marriage doesn’t make this any more specific than the concept of stepparents. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Sep 18 '17 at 16:45

    "My mother's ex" is what you'd hear; expand "ex" to "ex-husband" and that's about it in my experience. Alternatively, consult "Miss Manners". – Xanne Sep 18 '17 at 16:54

    It's not "too specific to exist;" however, the English language doesn't have the complex terms for extended family that some others do. And we have no word for this relationship. – Davo Sep 18 '17 at 17:24
