No way. I don't hold onto the past in the relationship aspect.

I hold on to a few things because we were in high school together and shared 10 years together so it would be a large chunk out of my life... Plus I'm holding on to a few things for my daughters.

actually  I didnt have a past love that was that romantic to give me stuff, I did have a  cuddly pink teddy bear from a past and when I got over him I donated the bear....I however have ALL the cards and sweet love notes from my husband saved in a box.......!

I have pictures I saved from my past relationship because of my DD. I have them saved for her. Mostly pics of her, me, and her dad together.

sometimes when he is away and I miss him I will bring the box and letters out to look at, and one anniversary we went through the box together laughing at some of his cards and trinkets...its  fun...eventually I will get them in a album mine are from 14 yrs back when we first met to last year, he STILL sends me a card for whatever...

HELL NO! No need to. I have a husband and any other man I've been with has no part of our life... so why hold on to them with thoughts??? Not to mention, if my husband saw something; he would be pissed; as would I, if it were the other way around.

No it's the past for a reason.

Nope, I'm married now, no reason to keep anything from my past relationships.
