Bonjour,

- This is my wife.

Quelle réponse est la meilleure et les deux sont-elles correctes ?

1. - I bet it's his second.
2. - I bet it's his second's.

Merci.

    Merci, effectivement après avoir lu votre message, le possessif ne convient pas.

    Merci.

    Je m'attendrais plutôt à "she's" (his second wife) mais "it's" (his second wedding ou qq ch comme ça) marche peut-être aussi ?
    Yes, you could also say: It's his second marriage (not "wedding").

    Note that neither of these sentences would be, as the OP put it, a "réponse" to "This is my wife."
    I could imagine two people within earshot of the husband saying either sentence in whispered tones to each other, but certainly not as a response to the husband's statement.
