SEXUALLY jealous women tend to challenge their partners and show their distress, while jealous men are more likely to ignore the perceived threat to a relationship in the hope that it will go away, according to a recent study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry. In a random sample of 351 men and women from Dunedin, New Zealand, the researchers also found that jealous men were more likely to have married before the age of 20, to suffer anxiety and depression and not to be living with a partner; women were more likely to be jealous if they drank too much, had low self- esteem and were under the age of 30.
