How many is too many?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

NKOTB, not meaning to slash off your wife, but having raised a kid with a Cambodian mother for eight years now it's (becoming increasingly) difficult because our views on parenting are quite different.

Add some 'drama queen' behavior into that mix and it might just explode in your face

I totally agree. I don't care what she thinks. She's there to please me.

This is all rather medieval, when I was growing up we fucked around a lot. Asking how many partners someone has had is possessive and jealous behavior. A woman who has had a large number of partners does not equate to a taxi girl, nor a man to a playboy. Pathetic emotional immaturity on display here.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

My entire life I don't think I've ever asked a partner of mine, how many guys she's been with......that's something that has never occurred to me to even be curious about.........quite bizarre newkid.

This post is so slut-shaming and chauvinistic.

If your partner is being true to you, what does it matter who they have been with before?

I hate that sort of jealousy, it’s so destructive.

The usual pathetic emotional immaturity on display here. The guy seems a bit obsessed about regularly portraying or putting his wife and his relationship on some kind of virtuous pedestal above everyone else. Weird to say the least.

Mrs NKOTB has low self esteem, I feel so sorry for her. :(
She didn’t want to go to Oscar’s because she was scared people would think she was a hooker.

Someone with self confidence wouldn’t have even thought that. She would have just stepped out looking gorgeous and enjoyed a fabulous night.

Well, to be fair to her, she comes from a culture where maintaining 'face' and 'what people think of you' is given a premium, the likes of which we don't usually see to the same extent in the west.
