Do You Have a Jealous Husband, Wife or Partner?
About Jealousy in Relationships
Jealousy is one of the most destabilising of emotions. It creates tension and conflict within relationships and can often lead to a breakdown in communication or a loss in self esteem for one or both parties in the relationship.
Someone who acts in a jealous way is usually experiencing insecurity in their relationship or some aspects of it.
That insecurity may in some cases be in part to do with the way the partner is acting or has acted in the past but in other cases it may have absolutely nothing to do with the partner’s actions and may just be a symptom of personal insecurities which the jealous person is likely to carry into close relationships until they seek professional help or are able to find a way of dealing with their insecurities through their own efforts.
What Can You Do if You have a Jealous Husband, Wife or Partner?
Most books on jealousy focus on what the person who is experiencing jealousy can do to control their reactions.
However there are two people in a relationship and if you are the partner of a jealous partner it may be that there are things that you can do to help achieve a better outcome for both yourself and your partner in the situation, whether or not your actions contributed to the problem arising in the first instance.
If you are the wife, husband or partner of someone who is acting in a jealous or controlling way there is a temptation to act in one of two ways either by:
- Beginning to avoid communicating honestly about what you are doing – in order to avoid a jealous outburst or reaction from your partner, or by
- Reacting angrily to accusations.
Both these approaches are common and understandable but often they do not help improve the situation and they may make it worse.
