I think hormones may have a bit to do with jealousy, but I think it has more to do with how people are socialized into thinking of relationships as exclusive and in terms of sexual possessiveness. Women get jealous and fight about it in the U.S. now, but in other countries or in the past, where one man was expected to have many wives, there were situations where all the wives were cooperative with each other and functioned quite well.
