i am.. my wallet has my picture and my husband's... i always like having a picture in my wallet, and most of my friends also have pictures of them or their loved ones in their wallet... i just noticed that when someone don't have a child yet, they have their partner's picture but when they already have a child...the partner's picture is replaced by their baby's picture... how about you? do you keep pictures of your loved one in your pocket? and who is in it? your husband?wife?gf?bf?baby? or a family pic? thanks & have a nice day!

I keep a picture of my son in my wallet. I think it is a good Idea so that I can show people how cute he is and go show progress on how he grows. I do udate my picture of him every so often. Pictures in the wallet are really good to have.

Yeah, i do keep a picture in wallet too, and that's me.. lol =D In the past, i used to keep pictures of my favourite celebrity.. BUt when i've got a gf, i will replace that picture with hers.. lol =D It's understandable that many will choose to have their baby's photo in wallet as compared, because baby looks, changes very fast.. So having a picture in wallet, is kinda reminding themselves that they have aged.. haha =D Or rather, they have more responsibility now, and to think thrice before they attempt to do anything stupid.. lol =D

Hi, ckyera. I used to putting a picture of my boyfriend and I in my wallet when we were in relationship. After we broke up, I took the picture out and put it away cause it's no longer necessary to put our picture in my wallet. Since we all have to bring our wallet with us whenever we go, so I always think that the picture we like to put in our wallet should be something precious to us. Now, I put my parents' picture in my wallet. I live in a city far away from my hometown, and I miss my parents very much. The picture then reminds me of my dear parents.

That's really a good habit. If anything goes wrong, that picture will aid in our identification. I don't usually do that! Because, since I'm a student residing at home, I don't use wallet at all. But, within few months, I'll be getting into some hostel. Then I'll definitely place my photo in it!

I also put a picture on my wallet. I use to it since I was in elementary. Pictures from my crush is usually much bigger than my picture lol. But as I grew older, I stop doing that habit. If you can take a look what are the pictures on my wallet, it is usually the person I love. =) and of course, my pictures with her lol

I only have a 3x4 cm picture of me in my wallet:) It just in case there is urgent needs that needs my pasphoto. Maybe also because right now I am single, so I don;t have any picture that need to be displayed. Lots of my friends has picture with their couple or kids, but I think most of them are women, men rarely do so. Having a picture of your old gf can caused men a lot of trouble. I see this fight a lot, because it tend to rise jealousy on the old couple, then the men/women usually will start to be investigated by his/her partner hehehe..

wow i am single as well, yes agree with you having in your wallet could means a lot of meanings, one would cause to jealousy yes that's true, me since im free and not yet committed to any relationship, it's safe to stock pictures in my wallet, it looks like a mini album in my wallet, many of this pictures were re-sized, i cut and make it smaller, that's it, i enjoy string on these pictures because i could remember a lot of memorable things, this pictures would take me to my past, reminiscing earlier days is so relaxing, i found it healthy doing this. many of this pictures were noted and signed by the owners and i don't get tired looking on these every time i want to! hi good luck to you, i wish you all the best hope you will found the right girl for you and put her beautiful picture in our wallet! then you could smile while staring on it!:):):)

hello there...as i read most of the posts here i noticed that you are right...usually it is the women who really keep pictures in their allet and men just keep pictures there for urgent needs! does it because women are more sentimental? i think anyone should not keep a photo of their ex girlfriend or boyfriend in their wallets specially if they are already married or with somebody else...i think its an insult to the present partner...and in the first place, why keep a picture of your ex, when you already with a new one? jealousy will surely rise and no body will like that... so keep the picture of the ex in a place where no one know and no one will see or better yet just put it in trash! thanks sophisticated boy!

Hahaha.yes, that's why it's so stupid for a men/women to keep their ex-photo in their wallet. The same also happened if we keep their SMS in our cellphone. They will start asking questions to us. But I think the reason they keep their ex pics because they have such an enjoyable moment with him/her, and it is hard to let them go. Or maybe dissatisfied with their new one. Yeah, I think men don't want to be distracted by pics in their wallet, if in case something happened..You know what I mean:))) So they don't feel gulity about it hahaha, but note that not all men like this. It is an exception. Besides, usually we don't care enough to put an effort in printing photos or cutting big size to small size pics to make it fit in our wallet.

sorry to hear that your mom is already deceased...you must really love her... you are like my mom, she also keeps a picture of my deceased grandma in her wallet...and our family picture... how many grandchildren do you have? is it true what others are saying? that grandparents love their grandchildren more than their children?

Some people are closer to their grandchildren than their children because of a difference in the relationship. With your children, you are busy instructing and correcting them as well as making sure they are fed, clothed and housed, but it is your children's job to take care of these things for the grandchildren. This gives you more opportunity to indulge the grandchildren.

haha, I keep my granddaughters more because she is three years older than the others so I have more pics of her.... She is my favorite granddaughter but I love them all, they are amazing. My grandmother had four favorites. Me, my brother, and my two cousins. There were like 27 grandchildren so what was she to do haha.... We would always get Christmas presents from her but the others didn't.

Before I read yours word,I don't care about this.But now I think it is a meaningness thing to keep a picture in my wallet.And of course,apart from myself,the person I will keep in my wallet probably be my families,my friends and in the future maybe my girlfriend.So it's just a way to show that who is the most important person for your.

hehehe...i am glad that i have give you meaning in putting a picture in our wallet. but actually its really depends on the person. some people don't put pictures of their loved ones in their wallet but instead they keep a picture of themselves to be used when needed but most people do put pictures of their loved ones in there for them to see it every time they miss them and maybe yes, one way of saying that they are important to us and we always wanted to them to be with us... thanks jakywoo...
