Dealing With a Jealous Spouse

Valerie and Danny, who've been married for six years, say they have a great marriage — except for one issue. He gets so jealous and controlling that he doesn't even let his wife go to the bathroom by herself! He gets aggravated if she goes out without him, and pulls the silent treatment if she's too friendly with someone on the supermarket line.

"I just don't trust other people ... I know how men can be," says Danny. "My biggest fear is that she would cheat on me for someone more interesting."

This is how out-of-control his wife says things have gotten. He'll send her cards, for example, that practically read: "Happy Birthday ... I hope you never cheat on me."

Valerie, who's never had an affair or misled her husband in any way, is "fed up with it," and turns to Dr. Phil for help in making her husband more secure and trustful — before it destroys their marriage.
