A do-over husband...usually a second husband who is considered a safe choice (i.e. more financially stable, less abusive, and more faithful) than woman's first husband.

Only after being married to the exciting, yet less responsible jerk husband and perhaps having his offspring, does the woman want a new supportive provider before she become older and less desirable.
