I'm really enjoying married life so far. Of course, my friends are getting married so there's still lots of wedding fun to be had. =D

I was just curious if there will be a place for those of us who are already married and have kids. I have been married for over 5 years and have a 4 yr old.

ChicBride, you can definitely post any marriage-related topics here. If you like, I can change the name of the board to "happily married" so it's more inclusive.

Hello to all newlyweds and married people. I have been married for about 2 1/2 years now and I have a wonderful son from my previous marriage. I need to get something off my chest and I guess this is the place to do it. I was divorced and a single mom for 14 years until I married again. I raised my son by myself and now he is attending college and has a part time job with the City of Rosemead. Anyways, I never wanted to get married again and I was definitly through with men because my first husband really hurt me a lot. My divorce made me realize that marriage is not easy and that it's never a guarantee that it will last forever, but I fell in love again with a wonderful man and I gave marriage another chance. I really enjoy being married and I know my newly husband really loves me a lot, but the problem is that he has gotten so jealous that we started seeing a counselor last month. I was just wondering if anyone has or knows anyone with a jealous husband or boyfriend and if so, if they have tried counseling and if it's helping. My husband has so many good qualities and I love him dearly, but I'm afraid of things getting worse. I needed to tell someone since my family and friends don't really know our situation at this time. I quess this is a marriage related topic and I'm sure glad I got it off my chest and was able to post it here with you all. Thanks:}

Ana,

I am sorry you're having difficulties with your new husband and aplaude your courage in posting here. It's also good news that you've sought counseling. In my experience, jealousy comes from a place of extreme insecurity on the part of the person experiencing the jealousy. Rather than turn it in on themselves they project it onto others (in this case, you) and become controlling and possessive. It really has nothing to do with what you are doing...unless you're trying to provoke his insecurity. But it has everything to do with his fears of losing you or you abandoning him. Does he have a history of the people close to him leaving him? It could be his mother or father or other family or former lovers. These are things that should be brought up in your counseling. Also, you can "help" him by reassuring him that you love him and will work through this with him, but that it needs to change, which means he needs to change. It won't happen over night, but with his willingness to grow and your patience and encouragement coupled with lots of guidance from a qualified therapist, it is possible to put the "green-eyed monster" to sleep forever. Good luck to you!

Lori, thank you for your words. Counseling seems to be working because he is really trying to change. Actually, counseling was my husbands idea because he knows he needs help with this problem. I think everyone is jealous in one way or another, but at times my husband goes over board. Don't get me wrong. My husband is wonderful and I love him. He's so romantic, affectionate, and loving. He makes me feel so special and beautiful. I work, I go to school and still do things around the house and my husband helps me a lot. Sometimes I get home from school and he's doing the laundry or making dinner. We do a lot of things together around the house and it's great. I really appreciate him a lot, but the jealously is what really concerns me. I guess no marriage is really perfect. I'm a really independent and strong person. I'm very out spoken and I'm able to stand up for myself and there has been a few times when I really had to and that's when we decided to go to counseling. The counselor really makes a lot of sense and my husband is starting to realize and listening to our counselor. I'm glad we started to get help right away before things got any worse. I know my husband won't change over night, but he's told me that he really wants the help to change because he loves me and he doesn't want to loose me. I love him too. For better, for worse, until death do us part. Have a great weekend Lori.
