Artist's Description

Morbid jealousy (also known as delusional jealousy, or Othello syndrome) is a psychiatric disorder in which a person holds a delusional belief that their spouse or sexual partner is being unfaithful.

An affected person typically makes repeated accusations of infidelity based on insignificant or minimal evidence, often citing seemingly normal or everyday events or material to back up their claim. They may also take great pains to test their partner’s fidelity, endlessly checking and re-checking mobile phones and diaries, and can go to considerable lengths to monitor their behavior and movements. This may be taken to extremes, such as “private-eye” type surveillance outside of the partner’s residence or workplace, following them into the bathroom in case their partner has an illicit meeting, or even hearing the voice of the perceived lover.

It can be found in the context of schizophrenia and delusional disorder, such as bipolar disorder, but is also associated with alcoholism and sexual dysfunction and has been reported after neurological illness.

The name “Othello syndrome” comes from the character in Shakespeare’s play Othello, who murders his wife as a result of a false belief that she has been unfaithful.
