    Good and evil is black and white.  The issue is not black or white.  IF you are jealous that your wife is in an adulterous relationship, it is understandable.  It is the adulterous relationship that is wicked, not the jealousy of the spouse.  This was the case of God having a jealous love for Israel, who gave their allegiance to idols.

    Interesting that the Bible, which says that God is love, also says that he is a jealous god.  So the two are not mutually exclusive.

    I would hope that if I loved someone, I would have some jealousy towards them, in that I would want to protect our relationship together.  Keep that person way from harmful influences from others.  But there is also a balance where you get obsessional jealous, isolating the person and become overly possessive of the them.

    Like with anything, there are good traits to it and bad tratis to it.  there has to be a balance in it.

    Natural. But what you do with it is either good or evil. Some people are jealous over people they aren't even with. Some people act violently with them or whoever they see as a perpetrator. So it's a deeper natural instinct than just good or evil. As a Christian I know that God gets jealous. And there is no evil in him, he reacts jealously when someone is courting his people with something else.

    Evil, since it means that you do not trust your partner.  If you feel confident in a relationship, then there is no reason to be jealous.

    Jealousy is destructive.

    It's stupid if you have a solid relationship.
