    No,it can not be healthy.
    The only way is walk together through life,helping each other,resolving problems together.
    Trusting each other is the basic.

    No, the person like that is mentally ill if it is too much and she/he should seek a doctor because it's too dangerous..Why?

    I have a friend who had a bf who is so very possessive and jealous it gets worst when he is angry cos of jealousy he cannot control anymore with his feelings and would end up hurting my friend physically that's too bad. My friend was so afraid because her bf is not doing a normal attitude towards being possessive and jealous and they always argue because of that.

    So I advised you to not let your emotions rule you just control. ask your self why you are like that? what is the reason? if your answer is not normal then I think there is something wrong with you. I hope you won't get me wrong since I example my friend with his bf.

    Jealousy is normal but too much of it is not good.

    It is one thing to be concerned of your partners behavior, but, to be jealous, and possessive is very dangerous in a relationship! If you are convince that your partner is cheating than ask others if you have the right to think the way you are thinking! If you feel you need to micromanage their every move than you need to get help, and quickly!

    Jealousy can be a healthy indicator that you are not getting what you need from your partner emotionally. It can also signal an oppertunity for emotional, psychological and spiritual growth for you individually. Chronic, unresolved jealousy and possessiveness, are not healthy in any way.

    to a degree yes. it shows u care about the other person and want them for yourself. after a certain point ,though, it will start to tear apart ur relationship. im saying this from experience.
