Greetings, Nelbie00, and welcome. You asked:

<<if a mans first wife is drawing on his social security account, does that impact the amount his second wife will receive if she chooses to draw on his account also?>>

Under normal circumstances it does not. Both the ex-spouse and the current spouse will receive the same benefit. However, sometimes those benefits may be reduced for everyone when a large number of dependent children who are also eligible for benefits on that person's work record also exist. That situation is extremely rare.
