Previous: adj. existing before in time
A previous marriage(s), a previous game(s), or a previous time(s) I played basketball all refer to the time something existed before the present.
Sometimes the implication is that it was the last time a subset existed before the present. A previous wife is usually the last wife that you were married to before your present wife despite the fact that you may have been married more than twice to different women.
Some confusion can arise if you are polygamous and a previous wife can be one whom you are still married to or one whom you were divorced from. Similarly if you own more than one home your previous home may be one which you still own or one that you no longer own.
