Jealousy

A man is fiercely jealous, in that, he said to his wife that if she ever sleeps with another man, he’ll kill her. He was very specific about it. He knows she slept with his best friend, yet he is not jealous at all because of it. Why not?

Some people are average, some are just mean.

Most likely, his best friend is a dog?
 
Or, why not, a woman?
 
Or, not another man, but one she already sleep with regularly.

Building on towr's second answer, perhaps his best friend is his wife.

I've heard it called many things, but never sleeping with yourself*.
Unless it's some sort of transport/duplication accident.
 
*) Notwithstanding that "how do you sleep with yourself at night?" is a common enough expression.

I think that sleeping *without* yourself could be quite difficult.  (Or perhaps vacuously easy, depending on how you look at it!)

Towr offered additional answers. They all sound just fine to me. All right! However, the intended answer lingers in the shadows (I can't stop watching the Hobbit).

Unless you use a vibrator. Does that count?

Whatever helps you sleep with yourself at night! Wink
 
Anyway, perhaps the man's best friend is himself?  Or maybe, the man's name is Joseph...

She slept with his best friend. Period. Stop riddling my brains out.

She slept with his (human, male) best friend before they got together. And/or the best friend is now dead and/or far way.

Yep. That is the expected answer. Are all Dutch as smart as you are?

Considering that the pseudo-fascist populist party in our country currently has 12 seats in parliament, and is leading the polls for the upcoming election, I'll have to conclude that, unfortunately, no.

Well, that's good to know. You truly are one unique Dutch.
