Baxter,                                                                                                                                        I recently moved in with my girlfriend and her 2 kids, 4 & 6 years old.  While I was unpacking some dishes she threw a fit because I had shared these dishes with my ex. She made it very clear she wanted nothing that would remind me or her of my previous relationship. I've tried to reason with her but says I need to understand and respect her feelings.  What do I do?

Hey Brad,

Easy one.  Tell her you completely understand exactly how she feels and then point at her kids. This should bring her around.  Hope this helps.
