    Do you believe that with trust there is no jealousy, or is there always jealousy?

    I think if a person really trust the other one, there will be no jealousy. What do you think? Are you a jealous person or do you just can't trust?

    What is trust? The weakness is not in the man or woman in the true sense, but in the level of evolution of the individual. Their consciousness. Judas betrayed Christ, Thomas doubted and Peter denied him x three. Vivekananda, who was in my view, so further down the road than many, still doubted his Master.

    Trust in a relationship is necessary, and would go a long way. Still, we are all weak, and exposed to the right circumstances or wrong forces, if you like, it can be tested. Jesus survived the demons as did the Buddha, but it was taxing, by all accounts, and they were very advanced Souls.

    My take is that love of God and detachment in a relationship, doing one's duty while surrendering the results to the Divine in a spirit of acceptance, is a better way forward. We are all weak and fall short of His glory.

    Jealousy to some extent is a natural human response that love has very little ability to fully dissipate. No jealousy at all would imply not human. I am not a typically jealous person. I trust my husband more than I trust anyone in the world, but there are moments when I am jealous.

    Jealousy has different levels and forms.
    While one may not believe their mate will betray them they still may not dislike him/her being friendly with (other people) they dislike or distrust. Oftentimes they want their mate to "discourage" others.
    Some people just hate sharing anything including their mate's time.
    Not many women would jump for joy if another woman sat in her man's lap and he remained cordial to her. Sometimes jealousy is about our mate "not reacting" to situations and people the way (we) want them to. We may want them to respond with rudeness or anger.
    It's not always about distrusting your mate.
    It may be about feeling disrespected.
