    Exclamation Jelous of and jelous from?!

    "He is jelous of his brother"
    That's a rigth sentence, but can we say:

    He is jelous on his wife from their new single neighbour?

    We can definately say that he is jelous of the neighbour, but what if we want to say that he is jelous on or about his wife?

    Is that a right structure in English?

    Thanks!

    I would stick to "of"

    Jelous = Jealous

    Kind Regards

    So, there is no preposition to mention the third party (from whome one is jealous)?

    And sorry for the typo

    Hey Ducklet Cat,

    No problem about the typing mistake mate, I just pointed it out.

    I checked the possible prepositions and all the examples I have found were with the preposition "of".

    Kind regards
