DH has ALWAYS been a blue collar man and works in a field where NO women work (except for the occasional tough woman who wants to try it out). So I've NEVER even had to think about other women being around DH at all - except this one dispatcher that took a fancy to him once - she got fired.
But after 5 years and a half dozen promotions, yesterday he started his new adventure as upper management. He's been transferred hours away from home and I won't be moving until we can find a house there, which may take some time (housing shortage - go figure) So he's there, I'm here.
He called me and while we were talking something happened, I heard a ruckus type noise then the line went dead. He called me back immediately and I could hear a woman laughing in the background, he was laughing too and telling me that his office chair just snapped and he fell backwards out of it. The woman laughing in the background is the secretary.
For a split nano second I felt a pang of jealousy. I have absolutely NO reason to distrust DH, never have had any reason. So why in the world would jealousy be the first emotion I have when I heard her laughing? I even laughed so hard myself when he told me about the chair breaking and him busting ass in the floor.
What the heck is wrong with me - I'm not a jealous person. Or I didn't think I was.
Could that feeling have come from hearing another woman sharing a laugh with my husband - and THAT'S something I've NEVER had as an experience before?
(Don't know where to put this - it's not really about our relationship - just my reaction to something I've never experienced before - and my reaction surprised me )

There is no reason why you should be ashamed of yourself. Sounds like your missing your husband and when you heard the laughing you felt left out.
