25 Silly Things That Make You a Jealous Husband

When you and your significant other tied the knot, you promised each other respect, partnership, and a lifetime of commitment. What you likely didn’t write into those vows—but probably should have—was a promise to keep your petty jealousies in check. After all, research published in the British Journal of Psychiatry suggests a strong link between an uptick in jealousy and a reduction in both self-esteem and overall relationship quality.

But don't fret: If you're simply aware of your impractical behavior when you're under the influence of jealousy—and simply talk things out with your spouse—your relationship will only grow stronger. “One of the most important aspects of a relationship is communication and respect," says certified mental health counselor and life coach Dr. Jaime Kulaga, Ph.D. "If you communicate well together, you often know the actions and behaviors that make your partner uneasy, insecure and jealous. Then, you must have enough respect for them that you don’t do those things, or that you find common ground and compromise to make the relationship work in way that makes you both comfortable. And, always remember one of life’s golden rules: treat others how you would like to be treated."

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the 25 silliest things that make you a jealous husband, from those nights out on the town without you to those annoying mentions of their ex, helping you tame that green-eyed monster once and for all. So read on, and remember to talk things out! And for more relationship behaviors you should knock out, don't miss these Old-Fashioned Dating Rules to Stop Following Now.
