I've only had to deal with it a little bit, my SO is generally very supportive since he realizes the only way we have money to do the things we want is because of me. I've combatted the feelings by plugging in the laptop in the living room and sitting on the couch with him (this is helpful for me as well, I can tune out Star Trek and SportsCenter while working :) ) Also by planning special things on weekends for us to do as a family. It's better during the warmer months I think since I feel better and want to be outside. I think the biggest helper is getting your SO engaged in their own "hobbies" or something they enjoy doing, that can be done while you are working. What I think it comes down to though is that they are jealous that you LOVE your work! My husband can't imagine loving what he does, but he actually likes watching me work because that's when I'm happiest.
