This chapter examines how monogamy structures jealousy into a relationship and how open-relationships can help each member of the couple unlearn their jealousy. It first explains the psychobiological explanations of jealousy, before dismissing them and discussing how we learn what to attach jealousy to, and why monogamous relationships likely engender more jealousy than open sexual relationships.
