Dear Dr. Romance: How Can I Handle My Jealousy In My Marriage?
Dr. Romance answers a question about jealousy and offers more reading to help handle the suspicions.

Dear Dr. Romance:

I just read a fine article of yours from a link off the internet and I was wondering if you can help me. Can you recommend any book that deals with jealousy and suspicious minds in a marriage even when there is no real proof?

Dear Reader:

Thank you for reaching out. I believe Handling the Green-Eyed Monster will help you sort out your jealousy issues. Money, Sex and Kids: Stop Fighting about the Three Things That Can Ruin Your Marriage also gives you tips and tools for working through jealousy issues. Please read those and I wish you well in your marriage. You can also visit Loveforever.com for free tips and courses for improving your relationship.
