From Matsya Puran:
On one particular occasion, Shiva addressed Parvati as Kali.  The word kali means dark and Parvati thought that Shiva referring to her dark complexion.  She did not realize that Shiva was merely trying  to tease her a bit. Greatly incensed at the imagined slight,  Parvarti decided that she would meditate so that she might become fair.  She wore clothing made of barks of trees and performed tapasya.  In the summer she prayed inside a raging fire and in the winter she prayed under the water.  Sometimes, she ate only roots and fruits.  At other times, she fasted. Prior to leaving for her tapasaya, Parvati had instructed Nandi that he was to stand guard at Shiva's door and permit no other woman to enter. There was a demon named Adi.  This fellow had performed a lot of tapasya and had manage to please Brahma.  When Brahma agreed to grant him a boon.  Adi asked for the boon of immortality.  Brahma naturally refused this boon.  He however granted Adi the boon that the demon would die only when he changd his form twice, not otherwise. Adi happened to come to Shiva and Parvati's house and discovered Nandi standing guard at the door.  Wondering what there was to be guarded, he adopted the form of a snake and slithered in.  Nandi did not notice the snake, but this was Adi's first transformation. Inside the house, Adi encountered Shiva and thought that he would play a trick on Shiva.  He adopted Parvati's form.  This was his second transformation. In the form of Parvati, Adi went up to Shiva and greeted him. Initially, Shiva did not realize that this was not Parvati.  He greeted the demon and said, Darling, I am delighted tht you have returned.  I can see that your rage has cooled down. But in a little while Shiva realized that this was not Parvati.  He slew the demon. Meanwhile, Parvati was continuing with her tapsaya and pleased Brahma with her prayers.  Brahma granted her the boon that she would become fair.  Since the word gouri means fair, Parvati was thereafter known as Gouri.  A goddess named Koushiki emerged out of Parvati's cells, thus named because the word kosha means cell.  The darkness of Parvti's complexion entered Koushiki's body. Brahma requested the goddess Koushiki to go and live in the Vindhya mountains.  She is therefore also known as Vindhyavasini.

Kartikeya or Skanda was born after some days.

Of these 13 were married to Dharma are, Sraddha, Lakshmi, Dhriti, Tushti, Pushti, Medha, Kriya, Buddhi, Lajja, Vapu, Santi, Siddhi, Kirtti. The other 11 are Khyati married to Bhrigu, Sati to Shiva(Bhava), Sambhuti to Marichi, Smriti to Angiras, Priti to Pulastya, Kshama to Pulaha), Sannati to Kratu, Anasuya to Atri, Urjja to Vasishtha, Swaha to Agni, and Swadha to Pitris

What I can read that Bhrigu rishi did some tapasya towards Lord vishnu to atone cursing him because of blessing from lord vishnu he got Mahalakshmi as his daughter.

I have a new question.  A lot of people may be familiar w/ the story of Bhrigu's wife sheltering some asuras, in response to which Vishnu beheaded her b4 killing the asuras.  Some accounts have it that she was restored to life.  This story was there in the Ramayan which Sumantra describes to Lakshman after Sita's exile.  IIRC, the name of Bhrigu's wife is not mentioned there.

Question is - was Khyatti the wife that Vishnu killed i.e. did he kill his own MIL?  Or did Rishi Bhrigu have other wives, and one of them happened to be killed by Vishnu?
That was Ishana, Bhrigu's other wife, Shukracharya's mother, not Khyati.
It seems, you are reading this thread from the beginning, most of the questions ae answered in further pgs.
Enjoy readingSmile

No he does not know it is his son. since ganesh is a creation of Parvati alone . He is created to guard  the entrance when she is bathing. When shiv tries to enter ganesh stops him saying that Parvati has asked to be  the guard and let no one pass.
Even if ur her husband I will not let u through.
And thus starts a fight. fight goes into full on war between the two powerful people on earth lol.
Ganesh proves to be to strong even for shiv [ i think] and in a fit of anger shiv goes chop chop .
Well all eeez well in the end.. and we are told it is also another Leela by shiv and shakti :P
