Sometimes other people feels that if their partner doesn't get jealous, that this person doesn't care. A little jealousy here and there for assurance purpose is not bad.. For me being jealous is normal and its a sign of love the person because you dont want to lose him.. what can you say about it?

jealousy isn't a healthy emotion. jealousy isn't a sign of love, but a sign of insecurity and a desire to control your partner. controlling someone isn't a way to show you love them. if you love someone, they can talk to whoever they like, or go out with their friends, wear what they like, and you won't feel insecure about this because you respect them and believe they are capable of making their own choices and won't hurt you.

and I agree with this too ^_^ because if you really love someone you have to let them make their own decision and just support them and give them advice if you think that the path they are taking is out of the right way. In the end, its still their decision if he/she will follow you as long as you support him/her as a partner.

A little bit of jealousey is not bad, but if it's too much then jealousy is very cruel. I happen to know a lot of person who does things that is bad for the both of them when they get jealous, sometimes people would kill because of jealousy and that is too cruel.

Yes, I think so because you are afraid that the attention you're getting from someone might be affected. But if you love your partner you have to trust him/her as this is one of the contributors of a happy and long lasting relationship.

I think that one should be a bit jealous of the husband or wife, it is a way to show you love him and care for him, and that you want him to be yours. But this should be supplemented with trust and not over possession.

When you are in love getting jealous be seeing your partner with someone else is a sign of love. BUt dont get mistaken that if you are jealous this is the only a reason of being in love with a person because sometime jealous comes out because you think that you owe that person. So jealous doesnt only mean love

I think jealousy is not a sign of love. Just like everyone says, I think it only shows that you don't trust your partner. A little jealousy is fine but if it gets too much and became possessive its not healthy anymore. All people have feelings although some doesn't show it in the way you expect them to be, its because they have a different way of showing it and maybe the partner is just blind enough not to see it, lol. Most people depends on how action speaks louder than words but we should consider that there are still people who relies on words too to make it more official or sort of confirmation.

Jealousy is a sign of a possessive nature and, sometimes, an indication of a lack of trust. It is closely related to envy and pride. St Paul said "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves." Jealousy has no place in a truly loving relationship because it seeks to prevent someone else from being themselves and not wanting to lose something that you hold dear is, although natural, a selfish feeling ... it is 'self-seeking'.

Love is about trusting your love one. But if somebody show jelousy it okay we can say is a sign of love. But jelousing to much.. is not love. but affection of one people to another.

i agree with the trust thing, but when i began seeing this guy he never seemed bothered if i was hanging out with men at a club or bar, which made me question if he even cared about me. but then he told me he was jealous and just didnt want to be seen as a controlling boyfriend :) but i think there needs to be some jealousy just to know that the other person cares!
