This sounds pretty safe!

After being divorced for 20 years, why are you and your ex at the same gatherings, and why is it up to you to introduce her to anyone to begin with?

Is she the mother of any of your kids? I've heard "the mother of my son" but that might come with a snark factor.

I see my x-wife at birthday parties for my grandkids. I say Hi but don't get into discussions. My wife talks to her sometimes which bugs me.

My father-in-law used to introduce my wife as "his daughter by his first wife". He was only married once.

I see her at my children birthdays and grandchildren events. I sometimes get stuck when someone new asks who this is. I like the suggestion to use the first name or former wife. I'm trying to keep the situation pleasant for all. Ed
