Boyfriend

Dear CS

recently we went shopping with my boyfriend of 3 years ,he is very commited to me and we dont have any serious problems,but we went shopping and were looking for photo frames,we live together with his two kids ,so we were actualy putting up photos of our family on the wall ,he suggested that we put up a photo of the mother of her KIDs ,i refused ,i dont understand why she should be hung up on our wall,i dont want the duty of explaining who she is when visitors come to the house ,he says that we will be doing it for the kids so that they also have a picture of their mom,i absolutely do not like the idea ,he still does not see a problem with it but we ended up not putting the pictures up because i did not want them,do you think im being unreasonable ?please help

Isn't it possible to hang up a picture of the borth-mother in the children's room, if they want that, along with pictures of the pair of you, and themselves ? That is their own private space, and not open to your own visitors.
In the family lounge where viitors would come, maybe it's not appropriate to have that mother's picture on the wall.
