Jealousy in previous relationships

I am 31 years old.
I got married at 29 and got divorced about 6 months later. My ex wife was my first gf.
I had 2 more relationships after that, one lasted about 4 months, the other about 1 month.
In the last month or so I am in a relationship which I beleive is very good for me. My gf really cares about me, really wants it to work out. And we are both extremely attracted to each other.
When we started dating I told her that I neither want to hear about previous relationships she had, nor to tell about mine.
But this strategy doesn't seem to help. It bothers me to the extent that I'm not sure I can live with it.
I know that the way I see the things is wrong. It's just the way it works in our society. And I honestly believe that if I was a more sensible man it wouldn't bother me in the least, since she has no contact with any of the men she had been in relationship with, and she wasn't in any relationship for over 2 years (until we met).
But I just can't help it... If it was someone else's story I would definitely recommend him to keep it and to do his very best to make this relationship flourish. Problem is that it's my story... would like to hear your opinions very much.
