I used my retroactive jealousy of my wife to justify years of affairs, seeing prostitutes, and masturbating to porn. In recovery, I'm trying to ensure that retroactive jealousy won't haunt me again. I've defeated it -- at least 99.9 percent of it. How do I get to 100 percent? You should know that my retroactive jealousy was not rational; my wife's premarital experiences weren't remarkably different from my own. Yet, coming from a very conservative family and community, I struggled with my belief that a man should be experienced and a woman should not. What should I do?
