Are you the jealous type?
I’ve heard it said that if you don’t get jealous with regards to your spouse/significant other, that you must not love that person. Not being the jealous type, I don’t agree. I think most of the time jealously is a direct result of insecurity, rather than a measure of how much you love someone. Sometimes it’s insecurity with the relationship, other times it’s more an internal “I’m not worth sticking around for” attitude. In any case, I see it more as a symptom of a problem rather than a trustworthy emotion.
I tend to be a pretty confident person, and I’m content and confident in my relationship with my husband. I think that’s probably why I don’t really get jealous – there’s simply no reason to.
Are you the type of person who gets jealous easily? Do you know why or why not?
