DEAR DEIDRE: I KEPT accusing my husband of being unfaithful – until we finally split up for a couple of months.
It erupted one night when he wouldn’t tell me who he was texting. I got paranoid and aggressive.

He later showed me he’d been texting his brother but was sick of the constant interrogations. He was so upset he left “to sort his head out”.
Over time we began messaging and managed to sort things out. I’m 43 and my husband is 30. The age difference is a big part of my paranoia.
Since we got back together, I found pictures of my husband with another woman – a colleague of his. They were taken when we had split up. She is 26. Now I’m worried they will get close again as their work is preparing a return to the office.
I want to tell him to be professional but I’m afraid he’ll misunderstand me and think I’m having a jealousy crisis again. I don’t know if I should approach him about how I feel. Should I feel betrayed?
DEIDRE SAYS: You were apart when these pictures were taken.
He has chosen to be with you, so try to have faith in your bond or your jealousy will push him away again.
Take a deep breath then simply say what you have found – and that it is bothering you. I hope he will reassure you. My support pack Dealing With Jealousy will help you too.
