Jealousy — a term with a bad rap could be a natural instinct in how we maintain healthy relationships.

Me bringing this topic up in this column came from a video I watched where a wife noticed on social media women complaining about seeing their significant other hitting the “like” button on women’s photos that were posted. She confronted her husband to ask if he was doing the same even though she saw nothing of the sort in their years of being married. The husband explored her concern with her and explained that he had no reason to and that he did not understand why men do that and that if men did not want to, then they wouldn’t.
