I think that partners who are jealous of each other love each other more.

I think that jealousy cannot be used as measure of the love in a relationship.

I just like to agree with the comment before me.
I just feel as though a relationship or any feelings of love
cannot be measured in any way.
It definitly cannot be measured in jeolousy-
especially when people can love each other without feeling a great amount of jeolousy.

Separate emotion, that we like to equate to love, but the relationship is more complex.
Some people are jealous by their nature, without any relation to love.
Some people are are not jealous despite feelings of love.
Jealousy is also incorrectly tied to the feeling of insecurity/mistrust.
The absence of jealousy is also incorrectly tied to the feeling of caring, lack of masculinity/feminism...

Therefore, since emotion people experience is more complex than what how we try to simplify it.
It's best to separate emotion of jealousy in to a separate entity to consider separate.

A person can feel jealous while feeling secure, or with the absence of loving emotions.
Likewise, the same person does not have to feel jealous, to show that s/he cares or to prove one's masculinity/femininity.

Thus, jealousy is not a sign of love, and cannot be used to measure it.
