Common Marriage Problem - Jealousy, a Real Relationship
The list is endless and jealousy in and of itself is not a bad thing, it’s
strong indication that you really care. The main thing we need to remember is not to let the jealousy consume, arouse fury and become
If you are suffering from feelings of jealousy look at the cause, question your
feelings and determine whether they have any foundation. Is your partner actually doing anything wrong, have they really done anything to
drive your jealous emotions or have you just let your emotions spiral out of control.
If the fault is on your side, learning to recognise the fact is the first step
towards controlling such an emotional and destructive thought process. It allows you to discuss your fears with your partner, explain how
you feel and seek there help in enabling you to over come your jealous emotions, strengthen your marriage and build a more solid foundation
for the future.
Communication is the foundation to marital success. If you can learn to
communicate then you can express your emotions in a non-confrontational, non-accusatory, understanding and supportive
Don’t just blurt your fears out such as ‘I think you are having an affair’ it might not be true
and it will just add fuel to the fire. Explain that something seems to have changed in your relationship, explain what has changed and what
makes you think your marriage is different, don’t blame, don’t get emotional just explain to your spouse what is going through your head
and seek their help in trying to sort it out.
One of the most common marriage problems is expecting our partners to always know what we want

Tell them now, save your marriage before its too late.
You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Even if the answer isn’t what you want to hear knowledge is power and with knowledge comes
the ability to turn your life around.
