How jealously led to depression

How jealously led to depression

Women always say they get jealous because they love their husbands. However, if they are too jealous, how will their love be?

Srey Touch, 24, got married when she was 20. Unfortunately, the marriage ended in divorce after two years and now she is very depressed. All of this is due to jealously.

Enamoured with love, she always got jealous with her husband. He spoke to other women, but they only talked to him because they were his friends or colleagues. However, Touch did not allow this.

Srey Touch sometimes went directly to her husband’s workplace to start arguments with the other women. Because of these unreasonable jealousies, her husband decided to move in with his relatives.

According to her elder sister, Touch was too jealous of her husband’s friendships with other women. Her elder siblings often tried to tell her not to be so jealous, but she never listened. Day by day, she became more and more jealous.

She added that before the divorce, Touch and her husband always had arguments over her jealousy, and she could not understand her husband.

Touch’s sister said that her jealously has caused psychological problems. Even though Touch is now a bit better than before, she still lives as if she were crazy. However, she is not actually crazy– just depressed.

Through this awful experience, how can we learn how to avoid destroying ourselves and our family happiness because of jealousy in life?
