Possibly. There is a kind of righteous jealousy mentioned in Songs of Solomon 8:6. That is the type of jealousy I got; not the insecure or stupid sort. I am completely assured of my husband's love, jealousy has a meaning unique to an individual.
If you have no (fear) of losing your husband and no fear of him betraying you then why be jealous? The only other form of jealousy I can think of is actually "envy" which makes no sense since he (belongs) to you. What is an example of your jealousy?
Jealousy is as natural as love; people are scared to admit it in them because they want to project a wholesome personality when deep in them are suppressed true feelings . I have a hub on this to answer your question.

That's a more realistic and brave statement. Keep it up.

Yes, we all can always choose to change and can really change if we want to. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing.
"you as the wife will just have to accept that."? No one is stuck with anyone! If someone is unhappy with their spouse they always have the (option) to leave! Acceptance is just (one choice). We're all entitled to have our own "deal breakers"
We can always speak of what is right in the general sense but in the end the decision is still personal level. What applies to you does not necessarily applies to all. In my case I am assertive in every detail in my marriage relationship.
Luckily, i doubt if i will have the opportunity to be jealous with my husband as he is not that kind of a man . I know, been married to him him long time. I feel blessed that my marriage with him is healthy overall. Can't complain much.
It is always situational. Your being married for a long time has made you well-adjusted to each other. My husband and I had just been married for less than two years and we are apart all this time.
Jynzlly, you're right. The longevity of the marriage has a bearing to the success or breakdown of a marriage.no marriage is ever perfect but there is always the possibility of a happy one.Cheers on that one, lol! I'll take the latter.
I have seen women stuck with their marriages even with big infidelity issues for different reasons -the children are one big reason like Jynzly said.i don't think men and women are programmed to be monogamous if you look at marriage statistics.

You're right, meaning of jealousy is unique to an individual. My meaning of jealousy roots in my experience of having a womanizer ex-husband. I can only have a clean and sincere married life otherwise I'd rather be single and peaceful.
Therefore your "jealousy" stems from a lack of trust in your husband to uphold his vows. Clearly if you don't trust someone it's wise not to become emotionally invested in them. Jynzly, an ex is not an ex if you project him onto your current mate.
