Idealization and envy are antipodal twins.  Idealization produces colossi that bestride the psychological world and can produce

claustrophobia.   Adoration mingles with envy, so that the result can be a secret desire to escape that can manifest itself

as a feeling of being so hemmed in as to want to make a jail break.  A wife who over idealizes her husband may be moved to seek

affairs to liberate herself from the tyranny of her adoration.  This is passing strange and also familiar.
