I get slightly ratty (inside) when I hear my husband talk about things he did in his first marriage, things his son had/did etc.
I wouldn't say I am a jealous person, but he has over the years, sometimes (not all the time) talked about things from the distant past (I've generally heard about them many times before).
Now here is the rub, example from the other day a conversation on prams cropped up and he nostaglicaly spoke about the silver cross pram he had for his son. I knew without asking but put him on the spot, what did he think about the pram our children had. He admitted he couldn't remember it. This is what upsets me, he can remember vividly stuff from marriage no.l which lasted 9 years but the next 39 years with me escape him.
I feel upset for the children it is as if they were not that important to him as his first son.
