Per the slide jealousy is: A negative emotion triggered by possible loss of one’s mate.
- Men report greater distress from sexual infidelity than do women
- Women report greater distress from emotional infidelity then men
My take: I don’t believe in men “distress” more from sexual infidelity more than woman. I believe both men and women get jealous the same no matter if its “sexual” or “emotional”. Jealousy arises when there is an issue in the relationship that needs to be addressed. I know that jealousy makes me feel angry and I need to pinpoint why I’m jealous. If jealousy isn’t addressed in a relationship then the relationship is due to fail.
