  • I don't know if i could.. eventually I would just yell at him that enough is enough and threaten to leave. I can't stand having everything I do over analyzed and put under a microscope. I love my guy friends, I love hanging out with my female friends and i don't want to feel guilty for going out and having fun.

  • I really don't have an answer, Is it something in the past that you did or most of the time when a man is like that he wants control you or he's the one cheating and he's playing mind games, so i would reverse it and ask him the same questions he ask you.

  • Some men are just insecure. Just keep reassuring him he's the man.

    And I submit to you that the line about someone protesting too much applies here.

  • a jealous SO is one thing, a jealous DH?? that's somewhat immature, in my eyes at least. sometimes i WISH my SO was jealous lol, a guy could hit on me right in front of him- even ask for my number- and he wouldn't care or say anything...but that's because he trusts me and trusts i will. trust is an enormous foundation for a relationship, especially marriage, so if that's not there than that says a lot of things- counseling would be my only advice. i've had a crazily jealous ex husband before, hence the "ex" part-- that stuff gets old real fast.

  • Without trust the relationship is doomed. I'd end it now and move on.

  • yeah i think their are major trust issues and you need to step back and really take a look at the relationship and decide wether or not you want to be there.
