I'm not typically a jealous person. In fact, I've gone so far as to suggest an open marriage with my H - an idea he rejected.
However, I do struggle with jealousy toward AP's W. Ironic, eh?
Especially now that they just had a baby together. It's hard not to feel envious, particularly since she can give him something I never can - an uncomplicated family. Although I'd say I'm attractive and successful, his W is too.
I try not to make it a competition, because truthfully, I've already lost that game... clearly - she's married to him! But, sometimes I can't help it.
He once said, "I spend 99.9% of my time with another woman, but 100% of the time my heart and thoughts are with you."
I believe him - but that just makes it worse. I wish I had more than 0.1% of his life and am jealous of the woman who does.
