  • No, as long as they're not mounted on the wall. He had a life before me, he's allowed to have photos of it.

  • It wouldn't bother me if they we buried in a drawer. It was a major part of his life good or bad or maybe some of both and for that reason he holds onto them.

  • My husband doesn't have an exwife. In fact the closest thing I can relate to would be photos from dances that he attended in school with other girls. He still has those and I don't care at all. It's part of his past and unless you didn't know about it when you got married, there really isn't a reason to be upset.

  • Not really- esp. if there are kids involved. I have a photo album saved for my boys of me & their dad. He just passed about a year ago, and I'm really glad I kept it for them. My husb does not feel threatened in any way by this (even when their dad was still here), b/c he knows that was my past & he is my present & future. :)

  • He could hang on to them. As long as they aren't like hanging on the walls with OUR pictures you know.

  • It would not bother me. It is something that is apart of that persons past. Their memories. I would not expect them throw them away just because they are with me. Heck, even if I get remarried someday I will have some pictures from my first wedding on display. Granted my ex is not in them but still. I also have many pictures with my ex in them and I have no intention of getting rid of them.

  • Dh and I don't have ex-spouses and dh doesn't have any ex-girlfriends. I have a couple ex-boyfriends and I still have pictures of them around in a box. There are pictures from prom and college and I figure my kids might want to see them when they get older and want to laugh at our clothes or what not. If dh did have an ex-wife and they had kids then I would expect him to have pictures to give/show to the kids. That would totally be understandable and make sense.

  • My hubby and I both have wedding albums of our previous weddings. They dont bother either of us having them. Both are first marriages were the white dress big formal church things and we both have pic's of family members who are dead, so the picture mean something to both of us. Now If the hubby were carrying around a portrait of his ex in his wallet, I would have a problem with that.

  • Not all at- it DID happen and was obviously a big part of his life. That being said I wouldn't want them out in the open for viewing everyday. I would hope they would be tucked away some private.
