Of A Hubby And An Ex


Finish the Sentence Friday


This week flew by, but I am so glad it's Friday. After yesterday's company event I was left with way too little sleep, and empty stomach, and a glass of wine or two too many... It was tons of fun, but the best part of the night was being picked up by my dressed-up husband after his concert.

Tonight's prompt at Finish The Sentence Friday:

When it comes to my past relationships, my husband thinks...

... well, witness a phone call with my ex J. a couple of weeks after we got engaged (about 6 weeks into our relationship):

J: Hey baby, how's it going?
Me: Oh, fine, not doing bad at all...
J: Do you want to hang out some time?      * booty call alarm*
Me: No, don't really have time, busy, you know..
J: So, what's going on?
Me: Oh well, I'm just going to get married soon...
J *loud enough for Richard to hear from across the room*:  WHAAAAT?????
Hubby:  grins

Our philosophy is that our past is just that: the past. I am lucky enough to be married to a man who is not jealous, who trusts me. He accepts my past relationships as part of myself, as I accept his. The past is the past, and if we had wanted any of the people in our past, why would we have married?


Thanks so much for hosting, Janine!

  1. That kind of trust is so great, it's the same with me and my husband. The only time we talked about the past, was if there were issues to be worked out ie, they hurt us or cause us to have 'issues'. But once it was out there, it doesn't come up. Before we dated each other we were both more jealous/protective, but there was this sense of calm and trust from the beginning between us and it's awesome. I see girls with jealous guys and it's just SO not me!

    1. The same here, Pinky. I'm not jealous, and an ex who even tried to control me after the relationship ended just drove me insane. I have a past, and that doesn't change. I'm glad that he is so laid-back in this regard!

  2. I love it and have to admit think I would have been smiling a bit myself if I got to relay that kind of news to someone who was from my past, who truly wasn't Mr. Right. And I will admit, I think Kevin would have gotten enough pleasure from something like that, as well. Thank you for sharing this here with us and for also linking up again, too!! :)

    1. Ohhh, it definitely was satisfactory that he found out.. It was an issue of him not willing to commit and suddenly being surprised that I had moved on.

      Thanks for hosting, Janine!

  3. My husband isn't jealous either. Doesn't it bug you just a pinch sometimes?

    1. Actually, no. I don't give him any reason to be jealous. If he was anyways, it would mean that he doesn't trust me, and that would bug me..

      Thanks a lot for stopping by, Kenya!

  4. I answered almost the same way! The past is the past! We're lucky for it but more lucky for now.
