I am dating a 43 yo man who has a pretty wild past. I'm wondering if that matters, at all...
His college days include drug use (hard stuff, not just pot), jail time (dist the peace and cont to the delinquency of a minor), fathering a child (adoption). When dating his now ex-wife, his past includes an abortion. While married to her, it includes a one-night stand with another woman.
People always say the past doesn't matter, but I find myself a bit conflicted here.

Whether or not it matters is completely subjective. Ask yourself, "Does this matter to ME?"
Companies perform background checks because things like this matter to them. At the end of the day, you need to decide how much you care about this.
Personally, I would not give this person a chance. Hard drug use and jail time are an automatic DQ in my book.1
