Frequently Asked Questions


What is First Wives World?

First Wives World is dedicated to empowering women through and beyond divorce, troubled relationships, single hood, widowhood and other life challenges. We empower women in two key ways: 1) through our free community, a private, secure support network, and 2) through our Lifeworks Assistance Program. 

Our Private Free Support Community - Our secure community is a social platform, protected from the search engines, which offers the necessary tools for its community members to anonymously connect with other like-minded women and find support, advice, encouragement and strength. At anytime and from anywhere a woman at the beginning of the difficult process of divorce is able to get suggestions, advice and comfort from women who are navigating, or have already navigated, those rough waters. Our community is 25,000 strong and growing. Join for free now.

Our Lifeworks Premium Membership ($189 per year) - In our desire to do more to empower women through and beyond life's challenges, we partnered with Lifeworks to create a tailor-made support service, providing best-in-class practical support.

Can anyone join First Wives World or Lifeworks?

We welcome anyone and everyone who has been affected by divorce, directly or indirectly to gain support through our community, website or our Lifeworks premium membership. Our most active community members include women in all stages of divorce, but we have had a number of men join our community as well and, as long as they were respectful, they were welcome by our existing members. Everyone has come to FWW and Lifeworks with the common goal of challenging the old views and practices and placing a new face on divorce that is vibrant, connected and supportive.


Privacy & Anonymity: Is The Content I Post On The Private Community Section Of The Site Seen By The Search Engines?

First Wives World is made up of two key sections: the public side (blue), and the private community side (magenta). All content on the public side is seen by the search engines, and the private community side is cut off entirely to the search engines. Samplings of the community content does anonymously show up on public side of the site, but these samplings are never associated with any particular user and are often limited in length.
