What are your thoughts?

Okay, here goes. Maybe It's just the emotions of being a woman and being on clomid at the moment, I dunno. I want some other ladies thoughts and opinions. DH and I have been together 12, married for the past 5. My DH had one other girl that he truly once loved and was with her for 3 years prior to us meeting/dating. He was also broken up with her long  enough to date a couple other ladies before he met me.  Well anyways, my MIL kept a huge, like 11x7 sized picture they had taken while they were together hanging in her livingroom for many many years.  Within the last year or two it had disappeared and i thought she finally had gotten rid of it, but we were over Thanksgiving dinner and we were going downstairs to tell his siblings bye and there that same damn picture hung above the staircase, but in a different size a 5x7. Im kinda feeling a bit disrespected that she finally took the picture out of the livingroom, just to hang it up in a different size at a different location. DH says his mom just likes the photo of him and that's why she keeps it up. I don't care if she keeps the pictures, but I think it would be more respectful of me if she didn't hang them in display in her house. What is your take on the issue???

My take it its her house and she can decorate it how ever she feels. Her pictures are not displayed to irritate, disrespect  or hurt you.

Sorry, but it is your mother in law's home and she is going to put up what she likes. You can always look at the situation this way. What if you had something on display in your house that you really liked but mother in law did not and she asked you to take it down.

My feelings felt hurt once when one of DH aunts had an 8x10 pic of him and ex GF! But it wasn't his moms house so I didn't care! They said for me give updates pics of fam! So they removed it! DH&I have old pics of prom/prom dates but not hanging on wall!

I'd probably lay a smooch on my honey that made his socks roll up and down, then check his pulse rate. If it's around 80 or 90 beats per minute, I'd try to not to worry about it too much, cause if you still make his heart pound, he's yours!

Yes, dh and myself have old photos of the such at home in our photo albums. I'm fine, were both fine with that. I'm not okay with his mom putting any on display tho. It's just wrong and disrespectful in my book!

I think its a bit of an over reaction. Its not there to insult you, its a picture in HER house of HER son. As much as you hate it it was a time in his life. Maybe take a new picture of you two and give it to her as a Christmas gift ;)
