    He says I'm Jealous and Insecure

    Asked Jan 31, 2007, 03:06 PM — 7 Answers
    My husband and I have been married for 2 1/2 years and it seems like we are still single. We have separate bank accounts, credit cards and cell phone accounts. I found out for the second time that he has been calling lady friends (of which I do not know) and using up to 5000 minutes per month on his cell phone. He also keeps his phone locked. So when I found out he said that these women were calling for his friends and he even called one with me on a 3 way line and told her he had no interest in her. She was supposedly his friend's woman and his friend can usually be reached through his woman's phone. There were other numerous women and I called just to hear the voicemail. I have never been a jealous or insecure person. However, when people appear suspicious I have reason not to trust him. Now that is has happened he has agreed to change his number and go on an account with me. I don't want to police anyone's records I just want to know I can trust the person I married. Why the need to have so many female friends and why don't I know any of them. If I had met them it probably wouldn't be a problem. I have male friends too, but most of them would be with me if they could.

    He has the nerve to call me insecure and unreasonably jealous. I am not that person and I will not let him make me into that kind of person. I must add that I moved 3 hours away for a job and also because he had no respect for the marriage and would stay out late with his friends until all times of the morning. His friends are also a huge problem in our marriage. They are all single and he doesn't see a problem awith constantly hanging out with them almost every weekend. When I want to do something I have to ask instead of him initiating. He used to do things with me before we got married but now that he has me he takes it for granted. I will be moving back home in a few months but in the meantime I can not monitor everything that he does and will not. I have decided to put more distance in the relationship and see where that goes.

    This is only question I see in your post, so here's my best guess at an answer.

    I'm guessing he has so many female friends because he likes the attention, the sense of adventure, the intrigue, the chase, and the reputation for being a player. Probably the reason you don't know any of them is that he thinks if they knew about you it would undermine his reputation and success at being a player.

    He sounds like a player and is still playing the field. You need to make him understand that this behavior is not acceptable and that if he intends to stay married, it stops now. He has the choice.

    I don't have an issue with separate bank accounts, sometimes it can work if each pays specific bills and the such, I honestly don't want to know how much those new curtains cost and my wife does not want to know what I spend on fishing equipment.

    But there has to be a budget worked out and money saved jointly for ememgancies and the such.

    He has to be willing to sit down and explain things, or he does not really want to be married

    I hate to break it to you, but your marriage is over. Move on. There's too much resentment now. Go have fun like he is, life is too short to be with one dork who annoys you.

    I told him last night that if he wants to have his friends that he just talks to on the phone that's fine but he needs to understand that I will continue to have my male friends. In addition, my male friends like to go out and have drinls play pool, eat and do other things. He says that he would consider those to be dates. I told him not in my opinion and if I tell him that nothing is going on he needs to believe in me and I will do the same. I don't believe in putting demands on people but I do believe that 2 can play the game. So I will be living my life just as he is but I will be interested to seeif he can take it. My husband and I are very compatible sexually and I don't have any intentions of going outside of my marriage because I really do fear the Lord. Besides that, I would never hurt anyone like that.

    I wouldn't trust your husband. I don't know if he's cheating on you but why talk to all these women? He doesn't enjoy talking to you? How would he feel if you called up men in the night just to talk. He'd say, TALK TO ME!! I've been with my boyfriend for almost 6 years now and I swear, he doesn't have all these lady friends but if we were to get married and all this calling up the ladies came about, I would be flippen upset too! But seeing that I'm not married, I'm telling you to play the same dirty game. I want to tell you to keep those male friends and make him jealous. But what would come out of it? And what if he's okay with it? Then what are you to do? WOMEN KNOW WHEN THEIR MEN ACT DIFFERENT, WHEN THEIR ROUTINE CHANGES. We're not stupid! And if we're insecure, we have a damn right to be because they made us feel that way. What's up with the separate everythings? You're married now! Sharing is a part of marriage. He might have something to hide (maybe he doesn't want you to question what and where he spends his money on). Girls calling for his friends? That's a bunch of bullshiet. Those friends of his sound like trouble. Maybe a part of him wants to play that single game again. I hope you don't have kids.

    We don't have kids and I have decided to separate from him because he is not ready to be married. I am moving on with my life. I can take a hint. If there is a need to have all these friends be it male or female that just says that he needs more than just me. I have my friends too and an occasional girls night out but his is constant. I don't want to be married to someone I don't trust or respect. Wish me luck because I am moving on to bigger and better things!
