How A Successful Woman Should Handle A Jealous Partner

Titilayo Ilori

In the society we live in, most women who are more successful than their husbands find it difficult to move on. Only strong dedicated women will be able to scale through criticism and marital crisis.

Women who are more successful than their husbands face a lot of marital issues from their partners. Not all men want their wives to be more successful than them.

You must be careful when it comes to dealing with your partner, so it does not result in jealousy. All you need to do is follow these easy steps:

1.  Involve him in your success story

Mention his name each time you are making headlines. Let people know your husband is one of the people behind your success. Most men are happy when their wives appreciate them and make them feel they are responsible for their success. Learn to appreciate him. Tell him "If it were not for you, I won't be where I am today." But if you behave as if you became successful on your own and you act as if his opinion does not count, he will see you as a proud wife and jealousy will set in.

2. Don't hurt his feelings

If your husband is the type that likes to take care of the bills without asking you for help, then let him do it. Only assist him if he asks for your help.

If you help without asking him, he might think you want to start acting as the man of the house.
