Bathroom Window

I need some help here, I have forgotten the old painting rules, (if they even apply)...

I have primed the trim to a bathroom window in an oil based paint. The window is located directly in the shower stall and receives a lot of moisture. I thought the rule was that you can use an oil primer and a latex topcoat. My wife just told me it was the other way around.

Will I need to sand the trim pieces down to the bare wood again, or can I continue and apply the latex on top of the oil primer?

you are ok

No, you can put the latex paint over the oil-based primer. Years ago your wife's statement had truth to it, but the technological advances in latex paints has been incredible.
