hello, im new to the group. I have been having a little trouble with being jealous. let me start off with a little background info. my husband and i have been married for a year, and we have a 4 month old son. my husband grew up in a small town where everyone knows everyone, which is where we currently reside now. as for me i grew up in a big city where you were lucky if you ever saw the same person twice. Every time my husband and i go to the store, someone is always stopping to talk with him, usually female, and he usually introduces me. on occasion he wont, and afterward i ask why, and he'll say oh that was my ex or my ex's mom, or dad. its not that these girls are a big part of his life, but when we see them or their families it usually is on a weekly basis, so it feels like a big part of his life. Being in a small town im sure everyone knows im his wife and we have a baby together, and almost everyone knows hes not the cheating type, but sometimes i get jealous. There was only one time where i had a right to be- i was 7 months pregnant and we were going through a bit of a rough spot just arguing, and his friend wanted to set him up on a date with a girl we worked with. in which i knew the girl liked my husband, because she announced it to the whole restaurant. One day i was reading his e-mails (i know shame on me) and there was an e-mail from the girl, saying she was sorry he couldnt make it to dinner with her that night, and he wrote back saying he was sorry too but he had to work. when i confronted him about it, i asked why he didnt say he was married (which she knew) and would never cheat on his wife. he said the point was that he didnt cheat. my point was, he didnt stand up for our relationship. So tot his day ive been jealous of girls he talks with and doesnt introduce me too or girls who eye him up in the store. i dont know what to do, i hate feeling this way, but for me its not so easy to just "let it go" especially after the almost cheated incident.
