Does it bother you if your partner talks about his/her ex? Why or why not?
Personally, it doesn't bother me. My boyfriend was with his last ex-girlfriend for 3 years. I just see it as a different chapter in his life. I realize that she was a significant person in his life and I don't feel threatened by that, nor do I feel like he needs to pretend like there's a 3 year gap in his life where she used to be (as if she didn't exist or they were never together). I like to know about my boyfriend's past because I like to know the things that have shaped him into the person he is today.
What do you think?

It's obviously wrong to deny or ignore your partners past. But they also have to be able to put it aside and make space for new things. So there is a time and place to talk about it (and the bed isn't one e.g.).0
