I PROMISE to keep it in my closet

If you find out your SO/DF/DH had given a ring (promise ring/engagement ring) to his ex 2 years ago, would you be mad finding it out 1 year into your relationship?

  • Men always diminish the relationships they had in the past, they want you to feel special. I wouldn't make too big of a deal, unless he blatantly lied to you about their relationship (like they only dated a month or something like that) then I would address the lie, not the prior relationship.

  • No. He is obviously with you now. I don't get why some women have to know the details of the mans past relationships. It is the past, let it go.

  • No. What happened with them back then has nothing to do with him and I now. Everyone has had a relationship or a moment with someone that meant something truely great. That doesn't take away from what he has with me now, because he's with me now and not them.

  • I don't think it would bother me, unless he was planning on giving me that same ring! I think it would be ok because DH doesn't have any contact with his ex.

  • no because his past was his past..just like my past is my past...

  • Why does what he did with an ex bother you? I've been engaged a few times, it's part of my past. Has no bearing on whomever I'm with in the present or even in the future.

  • No, my DH is with me now and not with the other girl. If he told me was once engaged or that they are friends, I wouldn't be upset. I am friends with some of my exes. I am secure enough with our relationship.

  • I guess it would depend on if you had talked about it and he had lied or delibratly omited it. Everyone has baggage tho .. But I know it would be hard. ((hugs))

  • My DH has his ex's ring from over 25 years ago. It doesn't bother me
