Snooped and Found Photos of His Ex

I Snooped and Found Photos of His Ex — Should I Say Something?

Yes, I was snooping. Yes, it was morally wrong, but I did. He has an external hard drive with videos on it, so when I was looking for a video to watch, I found a folder of photos. I opened it and found a folder inside called "Private Photos," so of course I'm going to open that one. There, I found pictures of his ex-girlfriend — some that were normal, some of her partially naked, and a few videos of them together. Ugh. I felt so disgusting checking it out, but at the same time I couldn't stop looking. Like, is she prettier than me? Is that photo of him really a photo of him in love?

They were together for three years, then broke up because he moved overseas and she couldn't follow him. He never hid their relationship from me — he's always said that he is over her and loves me. I'm sure he never looks at those photos anymore, but it eats at me that they exist on a compact hard drive on our kitchen counter. Can I say anything? Should I say anything?
