Quotation by Carol S. Becker

In contrast with envy, which usually occurs between two people and is focused upon another person's qualities or possessions, jealousy occurs when a third person becomes a threat to a dyad. Jealousy involves the loss or the impending loss of a relationship that one wants to hold onto, a relationship that is vital to personal fulfillment and claimed as one's own.
