If I were in your situation I would give little details, stick to my boundaries as best I can and stay empathetic to his. I would also do a tag search here for "jealousy" and read up on how he might deal with it. Maybe read it with him.
Yes, I agree. Even though he knew about my relationship with my lover before we became a couple, lots has happened since then. He has shown me and Max so much kindness, and there is no way I could ever tell him to just deal with it. I love him and also care about him and want to make this as easy as possible.
Little details, yes that might be the way.
