Jealousy and Anger in Couples

How can Reading and Wokingham Counselling services help?

Marital Jealousy is a normal factor when two people love each other just like jealousy among siblings. It is brings in healthy arguments and opinions that tell the partners in relationship that they are two separate individuals feeling, thinking and behaving differently. After the honeymoon period that can last up to two years a couple will find that insecurities start occurring in the relationship as the couple gets back to interacting with the wider world in terms of meeting friend circles more, having children and going to family gatherings more, going back to separate hobbies e.g. husband like horse racing but wife prefers using that time going swimming.

the challenges of normal life will enter the marital relationship and will test the trust level, the maturity level and the honesty level of each partner. when clashes happen for example, husband mentions innocently that he is late because he ran into a female friend he has not seen for ages at the golf club, then it is a test of all the above mentioned factors. usually after a session of healthy jealousy partners will bounce back to their secure base of love and boding and the trust, honesty and maturity wins.

But when is it that a couple(or one of the) decides it is time for relationship counselling due to jealousy and anger in the couple? Due to one partner's self belief system that stems from his/her own experiences with relationships it often happens that he/she cannot let go of the jealousy and it can escalate in stonewalling, resentful silence, contempt or else following and watching the other partner, reading signs of not being good enough and partner preferring other men/women.

When the consequences of Marital jealousy becomes:

Then the couple know that the marriage and potentially children are suffering and often that is when Counsellng whether faily counselling or relationsip/marriage counselling is sought.
