This month Ask Coach Kathy is about a spouse who has trouble with feeling jealous.
My husband and I have been married for 18 months. I knew going into the marriage that he is somewhat jealous. His former girlfriend had cheated on him. I can tell when he is insecure and bordering on jealous. What do I do?
Your new husband needs reassurance from you that he is your top priority. Whether you show it in words, touch, actions, or gifts, you may have to give him some extra attention now and then. If his jealousy seems to get worse after a sustained effort on your part to reassure him, I recommend he seek professional help. His insecurity may stem from something from his childhood, as well as the infidelity in a past relationship.
