FMIL just sent me some pictures for the slideshow/photo album/whatever that we’re thinking of doing. Aaaaannnddd….she included pictures of him at prom, homecoming, with ex-girlfriends, etc! She knows these were for use at the reception. I’m kind of inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt, but why on earth would she do something like this?!

WOW, how rude. Do you two get along??? As a woman I’m sure she knows thats inappropriate.

I don’t know I see it totally different. I just see it as milestones in his life. Those “girlfriends” were just insignificant childhood girlfriends. not adult relationship. I recently showed FH all my old highschool pictures included all my prom/homecoming pictures with my then boyfriends and we had a great laugh about the hair or dress or whatever.

Yea – but if I was going to use pictures from prom for a slide show, I would use pictures of me and my girl friends, not of the guy I was dating at the time.
I would be annoyed by this also, but she probably just has no idea.

I think she’s probably unaware. How often do guys ‘dress up’ these are probably just some of the pictures she has where she thinks he looks really nice, so she thought you might want to include them.

Maybe during those years she has few pictrures of FI. Better than the bare baby butt shot!
I’d probably leave those shots out–I’m sure she wasn’t thinking clearly.

We are doing a slide show and I don’t mind those kind of pictures… as long as there are only a few. Its part of his life.

If it makes you uncomfortable then don’t include them. I won’t be including pictures of either of us with any of our exes not because we’re jealous but because we have plenty of other pictures from those same milestones that don’t involve the exes. If your FMIL asks you can always tell her that you didn’t want the slideshow to be too long so they didn’t amke the cut.

Yeah that sounds kinda innocent to me… are the girls far away from him in the pics that they could easily be cropped out? That’s one option…

She probably didn’t think much about it but was grabbing photos of him growing up. Just write back, “got any without old flings hanging on his arm? =] ) and unless she hates you, she’ll probably send new photos your way.

I dunno. She probably didnt even think about it.

wow, i feel so lucky! mine is well trimmed down there, cuts his toe nails (into the toilet of all places, but they dont go everywhere so i dont complain) doesnt talk with his mouth full, does his own laundry, gets his haircut when it gets a bit too long, and is totally well groomed!
wow, i cant actually think of anything he does that grosses me out! thats pretty impressive, because im super picky about stuff!

I would prob not be to thrilled with these either. I would ask for some other ones w/o the old girlfriends.
