Who is more jealous - Owen or Claire?

They’re both jealous in their own way, but it comes not from mistrust, but from insecurities. 

Claire is not oblivious to how attractive Owen is, and it took her a while to get used to the idea that he wanted to be with her even though he could have easily chosen anyone else - honestly, he could have whistled, and every woman in a five-mile radius would eagerly fall at his feet. For a while, she was expecting him to get tired of her. She kept looking for the signs of it in his behaviour, surprised to find none. 

As for Owen, he is very much aware of the fact that Claire is not only stunning beyond belief, but she’s also crazy smart. When she’s talking on the phone with her coworkers discussing profit margins and revenue, it’s like she’s speaking another language. Now, he is not dumb, of course, not at all, but until the incident brought the two of them together, their lives were so vastly different they might have as well been living in different worlds. 

Their jealousy comes not from the lack of trust - if anything, Owen is keenly aware of the fact that Claire would never cheat on him simply because it’s not in her, and she knows for a fact that he’d pretty much die before he’d hurt her - but from the uncertainty that they’re enough for the other one. Good enough, smart enough, funny enough, ect. - they’re both struggling with finding that middle ground. Their jealousy of not the toxic kind, though, there’s no snooping around each other’s phones or ‘You should’ve been back 15 minutes ago, I bet you spent them cheating on me!’ 

They’re both territorial without being suffocating. Basically, their only problem is their inability to see that their differences are what makes them fit. Obviously, they’re prone to expressing their feelings if they’re uncomfortable with each other’s interaction with the other people - Owen tends to turn on the charm without actually meaning it, like a reflex, for instance. But at the same time, they never really mean it because they both know they would never intentionally hurt each other or break each other’s trust.
