New family. It's not what you lay in bed dreaming of when you were small and imaging how your life might be as a grown up. You don't ever really want to end up sharing your own children's weekends with another woman (or man) only linked to you by virtue of the fact that your former love has ceased to be yours and is now theirs.  But that is how it is now.

As I continue to recover from my recent surgery, I have realised in the last week how important my partner's role is for our son's development.

When people want to tell us who we are, it's important to consider what they have to say. They may have something to teach us. But their perspective is based on their experience. Ultimately, they must be heard through the filter of the love you have for yourself. Don't take somebody else's word over your own heart. That is resilience.

When I was 17 years old a man pulled over an articulated lorry on a busy road to hit on me. I can't be sure, but I think that's when a lifetime of being hit on constantly began. Now wait - before you think "ugh, what is this woman complaining about now?" I'm here to explain why women need to stop thinking other women are bragging when they tell these stories.

When a girl experiences their partner even looking at another female, it can be a great punch to the gut. I have been with my partner for five years, and yes, he does make the occasional comment about another girl he has seen. The only thing is that now, I am more likely to say 'yeah, she's attractive'.

Now most of us would be embarrassed to admit to feeling jealous. And most of the time, we wouldn't even realise that we're feeling jealous. But jealousy happens to the best of us, and when it does, it just creeps in, eats away at us and tastes sour. It makes us overreact, misinterpret and assume things. Simply put, jealousy is toxic; it doesn't look good or feel good.

Jealousy is exactly like the water spilling over the bathtub. Unless you be that team that fights the actual problem, it'll keep spilling over and over, creating paranoia and more mess leaking into other areas of your relationship, meanwhile damaging the trust and fun you have.

Three Big Questions About Open Relationships

Louisa Leontiades | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle

Being pregnant and not sexually exclusive is the ultimate challenge to monogamous thinking. There are even expressions which belie our patriarchal history - 'She's carrying MY baby'. Pregnant women are 'holy vessels' not important in of themselves but as objects carrying the male seed; so much so that sex during pregnancy ~ even with the father ~ is taboo to many.

Envy is not jealousy. The latter normally involves affairs of the heart, and specifically relates to what one has. In contrast to jealousy, envy is resentment generated by what others have, accompanied often by a feeling of ill will toward those who have it.
