My boyfriend wants me to delete every photo of my ex: Thoughts?

I broke up with my son’s father 2+ years ago. I took down every picture on social media that we had as a couple, or of the three of us. I am in a new relationship now. My boyfriend is demanding that I take down all pictures of his existence. I have pictures of my son with his father became no one will ever replace his father, and to be honest; I feel like I don’t need to go through every single album to remove them. Am I wrong and insensitive? Or is he overreacting? I really don’t know how to feel about it.

This new man seems insecure and immature. Set your boundaries and don’t let them be negotiable.

I wouldn’t… It’s memories. He has to understand you guys were a family beforehand. Seems insecure.

I wouldn’t! That’s something that will mean alot to your son when he gets older. Tell your Man-Child to grow up and stop being so jealous

Major red flag. He’s the father of your child, nothing will erase that. Keep those pictures for your son to have when he gets older.

I have photo albums with my son’s father and him together … even our old family pics from when we were a family. It’s kept for my son if he were to ever want them. No way would I ever throw those out!

Overreacting entirely…he has no right to take issue with that…cause one day all your son will have left is photos…I would ask him how hed feel if this was the other way around…

Save the photos to your google account for your son to have later on. Then delete the ones on social media.

I feel like if it’s pictures of just you and him maybe put them in a private album if them are memories you want to truly keep if not delete them,if it’s pictures of you him and your son or him and your son then your boyfriend needs to grow up ,them are memories you are keeping for your son to look back on one day, if he is throwing a tantrum like a five year old about pictures you have for memories of y’all as a family or of him and his daddy then he is the issue .
