How would you react if you were to learn that your mate’s previous lover wasn’t the same sex as you?
I mean… that’s in the past, right? She’s not still seeing this woman anymore. So it should be no more of an issue than if she had been with other men in the past.
Look, I’m not going to get jealous over people in my significant other’s past. Unless I have a reason to be jealous. Which would really only indicate that someone from the past isn’t really in the past. If my girlfriend or wife was still hung up on someone that they used to date or even be married to, then yes, I’d have problem. But, again… if the past is in the past, where it belongs, there are no issues on my side of things.
What about you? Would you have a problem finding out that your partner’s previous entanglements involved someone who wasn’t the same sex as you? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments!
