Do you think jealousy for any reason can ruin a relationship?

I do believe that it can, as it can grow out of all proportions and eventually lead to a break up of the marriage.

It is a non confident person in themselves that becomes very jealous.

I believe we all have a bit of jealousy in us, if we care for a person.

Definitely!! Especially when that jealousy is totally unfounded.I think that if someone is jealous of their partner,it is a sign of their own insecurity.What a huge waste of energy,which could be used in a far more positive way!! Loving someone is not owning that person.They still are a human being in their own right and the fact that you love them does not give you any rights over their existence. Jealousy can lead to immense damage of the innocent partner both physically and mentally.Very, very cruel! Also children whose parents are in a relationship which involves Jealousy are often damaged in very real ways.

Yes, there is the potential. One needs to be in control of their feelings and feel like they can communicate openly in a relationship. If not, barriers slip in and there is a serious communication breakdown, which negatively impacts the relationship from going further.
On all accounts.
jonaj -u r being very brief today!! Or are my questions all one liners?

Oops sorry Finy :)

I see it weaving it's way around a relationship.
It is one little thing, then ideas are roaming around in the head, and it become's a green eyed monster they say it is.It is something that just over time..will build if left unchecked.

I think it can ruin a relationship. But I think it will depend on how old the relationship is and what their history is. If one of the two people in the relationship has a past history of flirting, etc., then jealousy is justified and if it results in conflict, then the relationship will suffer.
Yes it can and this is from experience........I agree with Finy that there is always a tad of jealousy in a relationship..if you love that person
by Fran
Yes, I think it can.
Jealousy is not good for a relationship - particularly if is on a regular basis
by AJ
I believe so.
by Vee
From past experience it has ruined relationships, but I am still a pretty jealous person and it doesn't seem to bother my husband now. He just laughs it off, which is probably the best way to handle it.
Yes, I think it could eat away at a relationship over time. Communication is the best way to deal with jealousy. If that doesn't work, then perhaps a re-think of the relationship is required.
I think so but not sure as I have never been in that sort of situation.
Not if you're not the jealous type or have a mature understanding of human character
yes maybe
Yes, most definitely!
Yes, I do. It can manifest itself in a lot of unsavoury ways too. I think the jealous person is very insecure, the partner is probably not understanding the reasons and then something snaps. Either the partner gets fed up and leaves, or the insecure jealous person does something foolish. The end result is probably always the same - broken relationship.
