I was talking to a female friend the other day and the topic of cheating came up. She told me that if she ever caught her husband cheating she would beat him to a pulp and then divorce him and fleece him for as much money as possible. She's quite a dominant type and is always phoning her husband as if she doesn't quite believe he is where he says he is. Her husband, as far as I know, is a very hard-working decent individual. His wife has made him give up all his friends, while still keeping all hers. I can't help but feel that she wants him all to herself. Her husband used to be a fun person to be around, but now he seems kind of timid and care-worn. I didn't want to get involved but I did say to her that she should perhaps monitor him less, as her fears of him cheating or lying may in fact push him into the arms of another (self-fulfilling prophecy). I guess I was curious as to how many people experience jealousy and what qualities in one person may trigger it in their partner. Are you jealous, and if so why or why not? Or is your partner jealous? Is she always half-joking, half seriously saying she would chop off your man-parts if you were to cheat? Do you constantly have to text or phone your SO to ask them what they are doing?
