Some people try to make their partner jealous so their partner pays more attention to them. This is negative attention - the partner is thinking (angrily), "Hey, my partner is *mine*, other people should stay away!" You donīt want your partner having angry feelings when thinking about you.
Also, a partner who is taught to be jealous will now be jealous of other people in your life - friends, family, even children. You need all sorts of relationships to grow as a person. To encourage your partner to be upset by these external relationships will cause trouble later on when you want to go out with friends or spend time with family.
