Green-eyed monster

| November 01, 2009

Dear Carolyn,

My husband is driving me crazy with his controlling, jealous behavior. He’s always snooping through my cell phone calls and reading my text messages. I don’t have anything to hide and have never given him reason to not trust me. How can I get him to stop snooping? I’m at the end of my rope. He says he’s been burned before (his ex wife cheated on him) and wants to make sure it never happens again.
I’m not sure I can take it anymore.
Please help.
Cindy

Dear Cindy,
Jealousy is one of those evil emotions that defy logic. He is controlled by his own fears and that’s got to stink for him. However, it’s no picnic for you either. I always tell people that there are no guarantees of fidelity or lasting love. All you can do is assure him you honor your vows but deserve your privacy. Stand up for yourself now or this could go downhill quickly.
