This is an awful situation! I got promoted at work, and dh thinks its because my boss has a crush on me! He wants me to quit! I think he's just jealous and I really really love my job, but will I have to quit to make dh happy? How do I convince him everything is okay?

UPDATE***** We had a really long talk after our ds was asleep, I told him that he should trust me, and he says he does but doesnt trust my boss. Something just rubs him the wrong way I guess. I have to respect his intuition. I cant retell the whole conversation it was so long but basically I'm not quitting, I'm just going to work harder at maintaining the professionalism between my boss and I and dh is going to work on his jealousy. He is not opposed to counselling like some of you have suggested so thats an option in the future! wish me luck! Thanks for everyone's comments its been really helpful!

If he leaves you over a job then you are better off.

doesn't sound like you can to me ... if he's stubborn nothing short of quitting will help

You can't. I would be offended if my husband thought I could only get a promotion if my boss had a crush on me.

You can't change his insecurities or his lack of trust in you.

He's being ridiculous, is he like this all the time? If so, you're better off without his nonsense.

You shouldn't have to convince him...I wouldn't bother, honestly. It's an insult to you and your merits.

Personally I would remember my wedding vows at this time.  I love my husband too much to let him be hurt.
