Mike and Nicole’s OPP: Jealous Spouse
Our OPP this week was a phone call that we received from a listener that needs some advice for her relationship involving jealousy.
She and her husband have been married for 14 years total and have 4 children together. After 6 years of marriage, they separated for about 2.5 years and eventually divorced before getting back together. The reason for the separation at that time was more of her husbands temper and issues surrounding that, not any kind of infidelity.
Now that they are back together, her husband has become increasingly jealous in various situations. He walked in when she was talking to a male co-worker on the phone and she says she hasn't "heard the end of it". She tries to talk to him about it and his response is "don't come at me with psychology crap". He says he trusts her, but he doesn't trust everyone else.
She wants to know what she should do about his jealousy and how you handle being in a relationship with someone who has severe jealousy when there has never been any reason given for him to feel that way.
