My husband told me that he and Mary are really close and that she's his "work wife." I trust him, but I can't help but feel a little jealous. Should I be worried about their relationship?

No, you shouldn't be worried about their relationship. It's perfectly normal for people to develop close relationships with their coworkers. And in many cases, these relationships are completely innocent and platonic. So as long as your husband is happy in his marriage, there's no reason to be jealous of his "work wife." Enjoy the fact that he has a close friend at work and try not to worry about it too much.
