Meet the 'world's most jealous woman' who insists on subjecting her husband to a lie detector test every time he returns home.
A touch of jealousy is quite common in relationships. It's natural to feel a twinge of envy when your partner receives attention from someone else once in a while. But for one woman, jealousy knows no bounds.
Discover the extreme measures taken by the 'world's most jealous woman' as she shares her story on This Morning.
Debbi Wood and her husband Steve recently appeared on the popular daytime show to discuss their unique relationship dynamics.
During the interview, Debbi proudly proclaimed, "When you've got a good man, you're not going to let him go, are ya?"
Her comment prompted one of the show's hosts to suggest that her actions might be pushing him away.
This unique couple's relationship takes an interesting twist as they both share their perspectives. Debbi believes that even if she tried, she couldn't scare her husband away, a sentiment Steve echoes by saying he would have left already if she had.
Steve offers insight into how Debbi keeps tabs on him, revealing that she occasionally makes him undergo a lie detector test, primarily to ensure he's not cheating on her.
The conversation veers towards Steve's TV habits, with one of the hosts highlighting that he's not allowed to watch certain content because of the presence of other women on screen.
Steve defends himself, explaining that he mainly watches sports, particularly Formula One, which he doesn't find problematic.
However, the host playfully points out the presence of beautiful women in Formula One, with Debbi nodding in the background.
They question Steve about being prevented from watching women on television, even referencing an article from the Daily Mail where Debbi expressed her reservations about him watching The Weakest Link, especially due to the former host, Anne Robinson.
Wood shares with the presenters: "All women have an inner beauty, but for a man, it goes beyond that… lusting after a woman mentally."
"Mentally having some sort of intimate fantasy about them as opposed to actually just admiring that person's beauty."
Debbi Wood's extreme jealousy might find its roots in a diagnosed condition known as Othello syndrome, as explained by MedicineNet.
This syndrome involves having delusions of a spouse or partner's infidelity, often leading to incessant accusations and extreme efforts to prove one's partner's loyalty.
The name Othello syndrome is inspired by Shakespeare's tragic character Othello, who, suspecting his wife Desdemona of infidelity, tragically killed her.
Interestingly, it was reported in a Daily Mail article that when Debbi and Steve initially began dating, Steve was involved with another woman simultaneously.
