Jealousy

Jealousy is a reaction to a perceived threat to a valued relationship. The threat can be imagined or real. A person's jealousy often focuses on their feelings of inferiority and insecurity. A nationwide survey of marriage counselors indicates that jealousy is a problem in one third of all couples coming for marital therapy.

Who experiences jealousy?

Most people will experience jealousy at some point in their lives. However, people who feel secure and like themselves tend to be less jealous of others and less possessive of their partners. People who have experienced abandonment or betrayal in their lives are more likely to become overwhelmed with jealousy.

Jealousy is bad for a relationship

Jealousy can wreak havoc on a romantic relationship. Jealousy often causes someone to be doubtful of their partner and feel threatened by their interaction with certain people, the clothes they wear, or the places they go. Jealousy will destroy trust, the foundation of all good relationships.

Jealousy also takes away from your quality time together because it leads to numerous arguments and hurt feelings.

It is important to find a way to control or get rid of your jealousy. Jealousy will be harder to control as the relationship progresses. Jealousy becomes a big problem when aggression and/or violence accompanies the jealousy. Once you've reached this stage, you obsessively begin questioning your partner's loyalty to you, and that sends you into a rage, maybe even using physical force.
