    I said other. I requested that he get rid of anything that he really didn't have an urge to keep, because he is a major packrat and had way too much stuff. He still has a huge box of stuff, but we are keeping that for his kids when they get older. Even those his relationship with their mother is over, the kids may appreciate it in about 15 years

    His past is his past. Can't change it. He doesn't have very many momentos of his past, but the ones he does have, they are his - I would never ask him to get rid of his history.

    I'm his first girlfriend, and he's my first boyfriend, (or, we were, before we got married ) There was nobody besides either of us, in between either, even though we broke up for awhile. So, I don't want him destroying pics of me

    Dh doesn't have things like that. But if he did I'd ask him to get rid of them. He's not with those people anymore, why should he have things from them??

    I am his first and if he DID have anything, he got rid of EVERYTHING (literally) when he went off to BCT so i have NEVER had to ask.

    and the only reason i would ever ask him to get rid of anything is if it was like... naked pics or something. i see nothing wrong with keeping mementos of past relationships... you arent there anymore and keeping those doesnt mean you wish you were.. just that you were glad that it had happened.

    plus... mementos are great to show your kids someday.

    I would never ask him to do that. Both of our pasts are seprate so the other people in our lives never effected eachother or our relationship.

    This is a really good point, I agree.

    I said "don't care" because he really didn't have anything, even though they were technically together like 2 years. That was way back in high school, and both of them knew they weren't right for each other. So yeah, he didn't really have anything.
