Jealousy typically refers to the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that occur when a person believes a valued relationship is being threatened by a rival. The word jealousy stems from the French jalousie, formed from jaloux (jealous), and further from Low Latin zelosus (full of zeal), and from the Greek word for "ardour, zeal" (with a root connoting "to boil, ferment"; or "yeast"). Jealousy is a familiar experience in human relationships. It has been reported in every culture and in many forms where researchers have looked.    It has been observed in infants as young as 5-6 months old and in adults over 65 years old.     It has been an enduring topic of interest for scientists, artists, and theologians. Psychologists have proposed several models of the processes underlying jealousy and have identified individual differences that influence the expression of jealousy. Sociologists have demonstrated that cultural beliefs and values play an important role in determining what triggers jealousy and what constitutes socially acceptable expressions of jealousy. Biologists have identified factors that may unconsciously influence the expression of jealousy. Artists have explored the theme of jealousy in photographs, paintings, movies, songs, plays, poems, and books. Theologians have offered religious views of jealousy based on the scriptures of their respective faiths. Despite its familiarity, however, people define jealousy in different ways. Some even mislabel it as being protective of something or someone, when the fact is, it's really simply possessive jealousy itself; and many feel they don't possess effective strategies for coping with this form of jealousy.

Words are so easy to say. In this day and age I would not trust it. How old is the child by this woman? How old r u? Young people tend to put so much in the word love. His kids mother will always be there try to have a decent relationship with her yourself. You'll have a better chance to know. If not just pick any day make him drop his pants and smell him....

I would base my decision on a few different things: 1. How does he feel about the childs mother? 2. Is he trying to have a relationship with her? 3. Is he commited to you? 4. How does he treat her? 5.What is you gut feeling/woman intuition saying? When my finace and I first got together and his ex found out (they had been split up for two or so years barely had any contact) she came out of the wood work like a bat out of hell. I was not worried about him cheating on me, but he made it very clear to her no matter what she tried that he was not interested. After a few weeks she disappeared again. He hasn't heard from her since.
