A woman known as “Britain’s most jealous woman” has finally married the fiancé that she used to force to take lie detector tests every time he left the house.
Debbi Wood, 43, married 31-year-old Steve Wood on Halloween after spending their entire relationship trying to control his every move.
“The next time I post something on here I will be doing so as a married man ... Who'd have thought eh??” posted Steve prior to his wedding. “Thanks to everyone who has been with me on this journey of life up to now and to the amazing woman who in just a couple of hours from now will be my wife ... Love you babe.”
Debbi reportedly suffers from Othello syndrome, which is also known as morbid jealousy or delusional jealousy. The very real psychological condition is usually defined by a spouse or partner holding an irrational or delusional belief that their significant other is being unfaithful, even though evidence supports the contrary. According to reports, Debbi almost always made Steve undergo a lie detector test when he left the house, put filters on his computer, and frequently checked his phone, emails, and bank statements.
“I think he’s gorgeous, but that’s not the issue - it’s about whether or not I can trust him not to look at other women while he is out on his own,” said Debbi of her jealousy. “I don’t want him thinking they’re hot. If you’re in a relationship and you’re happy with your partner, you should only have eyes for that person.”
Despite Debbi’s irrational jealousy and paranoia, she was able to put her issues aside for a day and marry Steve. Here’s to a happy marriage with less frequent lie detector tests!
