    Should it bother you? No, probably not. But I totally understand why it does. My husband was married for 15 years before we met and there are a couple things in our house that were a part of their life together. It bugged me for awhile but I got over it. I can’t be so crazy that I make him get rid of everything that reminds me of her. He is married to me now, not her.

    I’ve kept a few things from my first marriage. FI is fine with it. They are useful and I purchased them so it’s cool. Don’t worry about it.

    I think maybe you should pick out a new painting together. Tell him you’d like to move in together and start fresh.
