I know a lady whose husband was promoted as a project manager in an oil and gas company in Canada. The guy called us to come and celebrate with him because within two months of landing in Canada he got a job in the company that promoted him within 6 months of working with them. The wife on the other hand has been in Canada for 5 years. She initially came to study for her masters. When she finished her studies, she tried to get her permanent residency through Canadian Experience but she was told she did not have enough experience. She was advised to do menial jobs in order to get her papers, which she did. She got her papers through that avenue. She tried getting a job in her field but she has not gotten any yet only data entry or customer service jobs. She brought the husband to Canada and within 2 months of coming to Canada the guy got a job. On the day of the celebration, she was complaining bitterly. She compared herself to her husband saying the guy does not even have masters. This surprised me. Can a wife be envious of her husband?

A wife can be envious of her husband's success and a husband can be envious of his wife success to. However, the common one is seeing men envious of the success of their wives. I watched a movie, knocking on heavens door. It was about a gospel artiste who was popular and her husband was threatened b her success. He always sabotaged any major deals she was about to sign because he couldn't stand her being more successful that him or being more popular than him. A secure person would not be threatened by their partners success. Instead, you should be pushing them to do more and even supporting them. You shouldn't feel bitter or envious about your partner's success. Most women downplay their success so they won't look more successful than their husband because they are nursing his ego and don't want him to feel threatened. That is wrong. I've heard so many African parents tell their daughters to downplay their success in order to make their husbands happy. Some even tell women not do drive expensive cars or wear expensive clothes even if they can afford it because men may feel threatened and may feel that she is out of their league. Those men are insecure then and women should do their best to run away from those type of men because they could kill their dreams or stand as barrier to their success.in one of my comments, I talked about a man who killed his wife's dream of owning a school because he felt threatened that she would become more successful than him. I know that the male ego is very big and sensitive and anything that makes them feel less of a man is unwelcome but your wives' success shouldn't make you feel that way. instead, you should be proud of her and support her in every way.

Yes it happens, because she is a wife doesn't mean she isn't human. I watched a movie where a wife and her husband were competing for a political position. Her husband was doing much better than she was, with the amount of love they had for each other,she was still envious of his success.

I don't think that she's being envious of her husband. She only said that out of frustration and anger. After striving to get a job and permanent residence for five years and it took her husband just six months to get it, it's not envy, frustration.

Well this is weird and it's the first time in hearing of a wife being jealous of her husband's success. As far as I know instead of being jealous of each other's success you are meant to celebrate each other and encourage too. Jealousy will ruin it all of you let it get the best of your marriage. Dont be jealous of the success rather make other jealous of your success. Celebrate each other.

Any wife that is envious of her husband, is a witch, yes i said it... a witch. I can you be envious of someone you claim to love dearly to the extent that you brought him to Canada. She should be happy that her husband got promoted, it means more money for her and the family. Whatever the husband has, is hers and that of the children so i cannot understand the basis for envy.

Hmmmn. A wife that is envious of her husband's acheivement is a woman that is not happy with the progress of her husband because the joy of every woman is to see her husband progressing because it automatically mean she is progressing because the both of them have actually become one and they benefit from any form of acheivement that they both have. It is often not advisable that a woman is envious of her husband progress , infact it is very bad, such a woman is not a virteous woman and that attitude shows that she doesnt lover her husband. When it comes to marraige, we really ought to know that the two of them have practically become one and whatsoever that any of them accomplish must be seen as the acheivement of both of them. In marraige, it is not longer "i" but "our" because you now share same things both good and bad, etc. So if you are a wife that is envious of your husband's success then you have to change your mindset now because it is not just his success but both of you success and you will both be celebrated together. What you should be doing is to be thanking God for the success and then pray for more success rather than wasting your time, energy and Joy envying your husband instead of rejoicing and praying for more success and greater heights.

One major failing of human beings is a failure or unwillingness to accept human nature. What is described is just normal human nature that is the way the human mind works at its most basic level. Some people are better than others at disguising their natures but as humans we are pretty much similar there are no good or bad people just circumstances. If we have plenty of food we remember our neighbours and in time of starvation humans have resorted to cannibalism even killing their own children for food. This is not new. To say I cannot do this, I cannot do that is to fail to understand our selves. Under the right conditions we would sell our mothers.
Thankfully for many those conditions do not exist but let us not judge anyone for we are no better!!We all had a good laugh at Suarez's biting but are we different,really? By the way is it jealousy for a man or woman to be unhappy that al their peers have kids and they do not or cannot

According to my understanding, the way of life also most importantly the way of Godliness, a woman should not have any reason to jealous his husband .the reasons are Firstly, he is her life partner, they are one and what the man has is equally hers too. Secondly, God has made a man the head of the house and every necessities to carry out his duty must be provided and lastly destiny can never be change nor destroy. It doesn't require your qualifications to be great in life. God's time is the best. So therefore, its not advisable for a woman to jealous her husband success rather she should be happy. Jealousy destroys home.

It is possible for a wife to be envious of her husband's success. When this happens, it shows that the marriage is not base on genuine love. In a marriage, the wife must understand that God has place her husband as her head and she needs to treat him as one.
