RQOTD - Weekend Edition

Do you still have pictures of you and your ex(s)? Where do you keep them?

Yes. I do have a few pictures. Trying to think of where they are... In a box or drawer somewhere. Or both. Probably in the closet in the computer room.

Yes. Both DH and I have a tupperware box that we keep memories in...there are pictures in there. DH recentlly received his wedding album from his first wedding from his ex-MIL, we're debating on where that belongs. Its important for the kids sake that its acknowledged, but I don't want it in my living room, iykwim? I think on the upstairs bookshelf would be appropriate.

Not a single one. My ex-husband in one of his fits (hence the ex part) threw away pretty much all of my momentos that I had from not just past boyfriends but quite a lot of things from my childhood as well. When I filed for divorced, I burned all of our wedding pictures and any other pictures that we had together (10 years worth, big fire).

Yep. I just kept digital photos. They're on my hard drive and on our back up too (like everything else). I dated my ex for almost 3 years. I like to think that if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't appreciate my husband so much. Smile

I think I have one picture of an old HS boyfriend and myself. But DH and I started dating in High school so I don't really have much stuff from ex's.

Nope - not even one. When Jus and I started dating it was clear to me that it would really bother him for me to hold on to my past at all. Out of respect for his (sensitive) feelings, I went through every pictures I had, including my wedding pictures from my 1st marriage, and tore them all up and threw them away. I know that some of my family and friends still have pictures from my wedding and it bugs me to no end. Why do they keep them? Its me and my ex - if I don't want them why do they? They think they are doing me a favor by holding on to them since "one day I may want to see them again".

I don't think I ever knew that you were married before.

I have a couple of pictures of one ex in an old photo album that's put away. I don't think I have any pictures of my HS boyfriends.

Yep. We got together our junior year of high school, got married at 22 and divorced at 26.

Jackie, you mentioning digital photos makes me feel so old! I'm not sure anyone had digital cameras when I was dating my exes. lol.

I backpacked through Europe with my ex, Will (we dated for a year and a half or so in college). He committed suicide five years after we broke up. Those photos are very important to me. I wish I had digital files to give his family. One of these days I should get them out and make copies of the best ones and send them to his mom.
