One major topic that is usually argued about, is the body count issue.
Should it really matter how many people your partner slept with, before you? Or should the last remain in the past?
Maybe this mail I got last week will give you a clearer perception:
Dear Agony Aunt,
I don’t know if this is supposed to be an issue, but it greatly disturbs me.
Yesterday my girlfriend confessed that she has slept with over 30 men. 30!!!!!! I swear I am speechless. Mine is not even up to 30. I think my own is 18 thereabout.
Since she told me, I have been trying to act normal but I have just been looking at her with the corner of my eyes.
I still can’t believe it. Is this one wife material like this?
Is it bad that I laughed after reading this? Please, tell me you did too.
Anyway, after controlling myself, this is what I replied him:
Why is it okay for a man to have a high body count, and not a woman? Doesn’t that sound like double standard?
Also, you cannot fault her for having a high sex drive, although it can lead to some problems if you do decide to continue the relationship.
On the other hand, why can’t the past just stay in the past?
Now would be a good time to drop an advice in the comments.
