Susana, I agree with you about detecting that little twinge of jealousy. I remember one time, a friend of mine said she wished her boyfriend would let her quit her job “like [mine] did” so that she could “stay at home and do nothing and spend his money.” I thought, is that really what you think I do? Stay at home and do nothing and spend my spouse’s money?! Then I realized she must actually be jealous because she perceives my situation to be somehow superior to hers. It’s a shame how catty some people can be.
