"The pictures are more than 30 years old and the girl in them looks nothing like that anymore; she’s around 50 and a grandmother of four by now."

Dear Angela: My fiancée (34) found a shoe box full of old pictures in my attic.

Among them was an envelope with sexy pics of my first ever girlfriend that she’d given me for my 18th birthday.

I didn’t even know I still had them, but now that I’ve seen them again I want to keep them.

My fiancée doesn’t understand that; she says I need to throw them out. I don’t understand why she is so jealous.

The pictures are more than 30 years old and the girl in them looks nothing like that anymore; she’s around 50 and a grandmother of four by now.

My fiancée is very bossy and most of the time I let her get away with it, but this time she’s going too far.

I need a bit of space to breathe, but she’s only happy when she can control me. Should I give in and throw the old pictures out, to keep the peace?

Answer: No, don’t give in. Everybody is entitled to some space and privacy, and that’s something you need to discuss with your fiancée before you get married.

Tell her that the pictures are a part of your past and that it’s up to you whether you keep them or not.

To avoid more stress and trouble, bring the pictures back to a safe place in your attic.
