Good for you! I love how you have discovered and looked at what is deep inside you to find what your jealousy is about. Very wise to slow down and work on some issues before deciding when it is time to take the plunge and try an open arrangement.
There are a great many threads on both jealousy and open relationships if you do a tag search and look at the stickies at the top of the forum... its great to know that you are reading. I hope it's all helpful.
