I am aware that two wives of the same man can be named co-wives. But what can a wife call her husband's other wife? I think calling her my co-wife will not be correct.

  • Did you look up "co-wife"? If, after that, it's still not the word you're looking for please explain why.

  • So do you mean you find it natural that a wife calls her husband's other wife "my co-wfie" If yes then this is what I am asking for.

  • I don't live in a polygamous society, so I'm just going based off what I read.
