Hi everyone,

here's something that really bothers me a lot: Iv'e been dating my boyfriend for over a year now and hoping to marry him one day. We decided recently that I move in with him and his three kids.I have kids as well but that's not the problem. Everyone gets along well. Here's what's bothering me: He's been divorced for 3 years and his ex is not around to see their kids or anything like that, but he's keeping the things she left behind and photos of her and the two of them together around. Is he waiting for her to come back? would he take her back? Does he still love her even though he says he loves me? I don't know what to think of this. Am I overreacting? Any advice? I feel hurt by this.

Jordan,


Let me ask you a question.

Jordan,

I posted a similar topic some time ago. I agree with Pamela to talk to your BF how you feel about this, because as in my case, my then-BF (now DH) didn't feel anything/think much about those things, those things were just there until he sells the house (loong story!).

Hugs!!
