This post definitely applies to a very, very large portion of the population. But not to everyone. When my long time partner fell in love with another guy and pursued a relationship with him, I felt only good happy feelings about that. I never had any jealousy at all. And I can't imagine I ever would, unless he were to seriously neglect our relationship -- which he would not, because he really does love me. So I just can't see myself having a serious problem with jealousy, ever.
That said, if ever I do face jealousy in myself, I'll be happy to confront it and deal with it. It will shock me to no end, if it does! I just can't see that in my future.
