Our expert says:
Its understandable that you hav been upset - such an intense friendship, even if it doesn't go beyond ridiculously long phone chats, is rather like infidelity, and highly inconsiderate of you. He is, in a sense, cheating emotionally, no physically. And the other woman should realize that this intrudes on your own relaionship with your husband ( I wonder what her husband thinks of it ? )
It makes no sense for him to insit that you must change "your jealous nature" BEFORE he'll join you in counselling - the mariage counselling would be the best way to deal with the issue of jealousy. For your own sake and that of the kids, don't even think about harming yourself. And persuade him that you have thought about what he said, and have taken some preliminary advice about the jealousy thing, and have received expert advice that this would best be dealt with, because it so obviously affects him as well, by you working on it together, in couples counselling
