    I don't think anyone would ever advise jealousy. Bottom line-do you trust him? Relationships don't necessarily die after a breakup. It is perfectly healthy to have friends, whatever the origin. Now, if there were conflicts of old emotions causing problems in your marriage, then that would have to be resolved, but not by forbidding him from contact. Nothing good ever comes from an ultimatum. Communication is the key to a successful marriage. Talk about your feelings with each other and take it from there.

    Maybe you should start emailing past boyfriends see if he likes it. But seriously if he is doing this is because (now dont get mad) u r allowing it. tell him that you dont like it, its hurting your feelings and most of all its very disrespectful. Maybe you guys have a lack of communication and that is why hes doing what he's doing. Not blaming you at all but this is not acceptable. You need to stand your ground and let him know your thoughts on this. Good luck!!!

    I am a close personal friend of the Green Eyed Monster so my opinion is likely biased. Yes, I would be upset. Tell him how you feel when he does this. For myself, it would be something like: Why do you need them? I want to be the only woman in your life. I am hurting over these relationships you have outside our marriage. Ask him to please cease correspondence with these girls (and if he continues to do it in secret, THEN you've got a problem!)

    Honestly, the fact that it is not just one girl in particular probably makes it pretty innocent-but I still think you should share how it makes you feel.

    I would say not to be jealous. But he needs to stop doing that. He is married to you and made the commitment to you he needs

    to let go of old girlfriends. I would let him know it is not acceptable. Good luck.

    Your husband should be respectful of you. Old girlfriends belong in the past. I caught my ex doing this, and it led to other things. Beware!!

    depends on what's going on with the emails and the old girlfriends.....if it's just keeping in touch with an old friend, then i don't see a problem......if you're afraid he's cheating on you, then you should ask him about the situation........either way, if it's bothering you, then talk to him....

    I think i would be putting a stop to it.Emailing old girlfriends is still a form of cheating.If he has you then he needs to stop all contact with the ex's and focus on you.Tell him he has two choices you or them.

    your married and no he shouldn't be emailing others. there is a reason why, maybe he wants to hook up with one of them, yes it would upset me, because it would make me think he was looking for something more from his life, and that maybe he wasn't happy with me.

    I would surely wonder why and what is the purpose. Start e-mailing x boyfriends and see how he feels about that. God bless****
