Once a person marries, it is time to put away all those things you got from other lovers. the only reason to keep such nonsense would be to cause insecurity in your spouse. That is a lousy way to base a relationship. A little jealousy is good, but keeping cards, etc, from a previous relationship can cause a lot of jealousy and totally ruin a wonderful commitment.

It's always nice to keep old mementos for future recollection. I still keep the cards from my friends even if we have ended our relationship/friendship. That way when the broken heart is mended I can go back to the cards and relish old memories. However because of the new technology--emails and ecards,I don't get so much cards anymore. But still give some to my close friends.

hi jemina. ya, i like sending cards to loved ones, not the ecards. if my friends are unreachable, i usually send ecards, unlike before i go to the post office just to send cards and letters to loved ones, or friends living many miles away from me..

I always keep letters and cards even when I was younger and up to now that I am married except those things that come from my ex lovers. Before I got married I burned all those letters and cards. My marriage is another chapter of my life, my friends are still there but ex lovers? No. I do not need to keep their letters.

Yes I still have letters from 15 years ago from all the girls in high school I dated. I like every now and then taking a look at them because its like a big flash back.
