How jealous are you??

My husband is constantly talking about other girls we see while we are out in public and girl that we know. This does not bother me in the least, but all of my friends say it should. I always thought this was normal and if he wasn't thinking these things there may something wrong, and at least he is comfortable enough with me to say it out loud. Also I have always viewed this as me being secure in my realtionship. My friends on the other hand seem to think I just don't care; on the contrary I would care if I thought there was any kind of threat there. So my question to you is: how jealous are you when your man look at and comments on other women, wether you know them or not and does it make a difference if you do know them?

  • If YOU are okay with it and secure in your relationship and your hubby gives you no reason to have a fit over it, then you are just fine. I'm not jealous, for the most part. I only get jealous if there is good reason, such as if my hubby were to physically hang on another girl (yes, my first husband use to do this) or if he actually talked about having sex with a girl he saw (so it could really happen). You know, things that are real, physical, in my face - then I would be jealous. I personally don't like to hear my husband talk about other hot chicks, and out of respect he doesn't do it - in front of me, but I know he does it when he is with the guys and I couldn't care less. Sometimes, most times, a woman's insecurity and jealousy comes from the way the man treats her to begin with, and sometimes she's just insecure with herself. Hubby and I have 100% trust and respect for each other and that goes a long way.

  • I'm very jealous. My DH doesn't even have to say anything (we've been together a long time) and I know when he finds another girl attractive, and it makes me jealous immediately. But then again... he's given me reason to not trust him. He says he's changed and grown up, but... you never really know if that's true.

  • I trust my husband. I've grown up and gotten past the immaturity of jealously. Those are constantly jealous (like your friends seem to be) are very immature and insecure.

  • With my ex I noticed that I wasn't jealous at all. That's one of things that helped me realize I wasn't in love with him. I think some jealousy is normal, as long as you don't take it overboard.

  • i am very jealous..and if my husband were to do that to me out in public i would probably be very rude or ugly to him..and if it were about a friend we know it would depend on the vibe i got from him with it...a women can tell her mans bf said all of those things about her husband like you did and come to find out he was having an affair at work...i never let my guard down never...i warned her about some of her husbands comments about other women and towards me and she blew me off...well you cant deny whats looking you right in the face...

  • If your ok with it then thats cool. I mean you know your hubby nd what is ok in your marriage, what they say shouldnt matter.
    Personally, we feel there is no need for that in our marriage. It would be extremely dissrespectful. I trust my Husband and I am not a jealous person, it is just that DH and I feel there is need for that in our marriage. Everyone is different, and what works for you may not work for other's. It is not always because they are jealous or insecure though.
