Hello Therapist, 

I have been married for the last 5 years and we are planning to have a baby. We are very happy together. But now the only issue is that my ex-girlfriend wants to be in touch with me and I can't say no to her. I know my wife won't like it. Please suggest what should I do? 

Hello Pinkvilla Reader, 

If you can assure your wife that you know your boundaries very well and will adhere to restrictions, then the wife’s confidence can help you out. Don’t talk to your ex without your wife’s knowledge. The behaviour of marital possessiveness is actually an evolutionary adaptation and an ex can definitely be seen as a threat. Best is to decide your priorities and not get swayed into unnecessary hassles if you are planning on having a baby.

"I cant say no to my ex"... should have married her instead.

This is just a made up question for making the article. Because no one asks if I should get in touch with my ex when I'm trying to be a parent. If they are that dumb they shouldn't have a baby as parenthood is a huge responsibility.

Its not unnatural to have feelings for Exes . Such things have happened to every one including myself . Be polite be friendly but be supportive and loving to your wife more . she needs you more than your ex .

He can get in touch with ex after 5 years when he is bored with wife. Why is he even asking this question if he really over his ex?
