Is it acceptable to talk about ex partners in a relationship or kept in the closet?

Best left unspoken, though it can depend.

I think it depends on how well you can talk to your partner and how sensitive your partner is to the subject.

I guess it's okay as long as it's not the only thing you talk about all the time :)

Your past is your past. There is no rule regarding discussing previous partners however, sometimes, a person will say, "tell me, I won't get upset" but nine times out of ten, whether male or female, they do get bothered or upset. Only you can make this decision.

If you are talking about events in the past there is no problem with including your exes in the conversation. But generally people don't like their lovers talking about their ex-lovers just to talk about them.

It's better to get it out into the open, then once it's been cleared up, toss it into the closet.

don't talk about your ex"s there the past you don't look back on bad relationships you gotta look forward and stay confident about your girl friend, wife, etc. i personally don't like for my fionsey to talk about his ex's and so i defiantly don't talk about mine its a sensitive subject because you want to feel like your the only thing that matters to him or her and when your lover talks about an ex lover it makes you feel like they care more about the ex than you..

now if your lover speaks to you about it and has something to tell you about his or her past yeah go ahead and let it out but don't constantly talk about an ex. its a touchy conversation.

You both should divulge all that information. Openness is key to any good relationship

It's acceptable, but don't talk about them all the time. Use your past experiences with exes to help your current partner learn more about you, your likes dislikes things like that.

I went through the same thing. You may not miss them you just miss the memories y'all had together. I'm not the type to talk about things I like to write my feelings out. It helps get things off your mind
