There is nothing wrong, being jealous in a marriage relationship.
Jealousy is Godly. Even God Almighty, calls himself, a jealous God (Exodus 20:5)
Jealous simply says, “I want what is mine, when I suspect or see someone else coming for it.”
Every husband has the right to demand for his wife, when he suspects or sees another man, coming for her and every wife also has the right to demand for her husband, when she sees or suspects another woman, coming for her husband.
If your husband or wife is not jealous over you, then, you could be sitting on a keg of gun power. It is safe to say that, the marriage has ended, technically.
We make demand for what is ours or express jealousy, in several ways.
No matter the approach you use to make demand for what is yours when you see or suspect a competition, imbibe the spirit of decency and orderliness (2 Corinthians 14:40).
let’s stop using words to intimidate each other in marriage. Instead of using the word ‘ JEALOUS‘ as a weapon, to make your wife or husband cower or feel less than they are, ADDRESS THE UNHEALTHY JEALOUSY.
Unhealthy jealousy is unreasonable jealousy.
Unhealthy jealousy emanates from personal weaknesses, it has nothing to do with the other person.
If your husband or wife has unhealthy jealousy in them:
1). Go to them.
2). Mention the unhealthy jealousy, you see in them.
3). Reason together.
Ask questions like:
*What is this unhealthy jealousy in you?
*Why is this unhealthy jealousy in you?
*What can I do to make you not to be jealous unhealthily?
*What makes you think that the person coming around me is a competition?
*What makes you think that I can be lured away from you?
*What boundaries can we apply to reduce or eradicate unhealthy jealousy in you?
When a husband and wife are governed by the consciousness of God’s purpose and benefits for their marriage relationship, they will address their faults rather than use it to bring each other down.
Jealousy is good but unhealthy jealousy must be addressed, in the interest of God’s purpose and benefits for the marriage relationship.
