Jealousy is a poison to any relationship. It is a troubling and unpleasant thing. Some individuals are jealous of the time their partner spends with friends. Or, they may be jealous of any person who shows attention to a partner. This can adversely affect your relationship.

Envy of things your partner accomplishes can be a serious problem. For example, envy over your partner’s financial success or public notoriety. Or, perhaps he or she receives more from a family member. Such feelings are bound to cause problems in a relationship.

I have known partners who are envious because their partner starts working much later and can therefore sleep in every morning. It would seem that one would be happy that their partner has additional comforts.
