Default Poll: Do you want to know your SO's "History"?

I've always refused to acknowledge my significant others' history's as I feel it would never have made me happy afterwords, regardless of the 'damage'. Last night I got into a discussion with my swmbo about her history, and lucky for me it's not bad at all, and I'm slightly happy that I had an open mind about it.

What's everyone else's take on this matter?

By 'history', you mean who she f*cked before she was f*cking you?

Yep! I need to know this stuff. I know it's not my business, but I like to feed my self-destructive tendencies at every opportunity. We discussed all that at a very early stage in our relationship. I'm sure she held some stuff back though, as did I.

There are some things in my past that made me grateful for the relief it brought when one by one my family died, taking their knowledge of my past with them. And I ain't telling that stuff to NO ONE

I require a blood test, a credit report and a background check after a ten day cooling off period.

Seriously, I don't give a damn. If you've grown attached to a person, have formed a relationship with them and love who they are now, it shouldn't matter if they performed nightly in The Juarez Donkey Show. Of course I can say that because I've been married 25 years and my wife has never been to Juarez.

I don't wanna speak for your relationship, because I know nothing of it but I feel that it is your business if you are in a committed relationship and devoted to one another.

I certainly want to know, and it doesn't bother me because I am the only person she has had sex with.

Certainly you cannot make a statement like that & expect nobody to ask what you did. Don't you remember the poor sap who got a bunch of salt poured in his beer? We're not giving up on him either...

My SWMBO and I talk about our past, but it's not a high priority that I know who she was with. If they were that important, she'd still be with em I wot.

What my wife did before meeting me is really none of my business. Now, if there was something in her past or mine that might be pertinent to our relationship, I would hope we would both be mature enough to talk about it and handle it accordingly.

That said, we've both been open about and there aren't any skeletons around. In fact, we tease each other about it.

"I'M 37?!?!?"




I think, subconsciously, my SWMBO's past made me a homebrewer. The guy she was with right before we met was a homebrewer, and (apparently) he also had a gignormous cock. So, I think subconsciously, I associated making my own beer with growing a hge pecker.

I'm sad to report that, in fact, homebrewing has not been of any assistance
