My hubby parks me in every night- is this a control issue?

My hubby parks his car in front of the garage when he gets home fr. work. He told me in the winter it was cause he doesnt have to scrap the wind sheild if the car is close to the garage. He still does it in the spring and the summer. I have to ask him to move his car every time I want to go out. He gets mad that he has to move it, and says A minor curse word. I have to call him sometimes if I am out to tell him not to park in front of garage, so I can get back in when I get home, and that makes him mad. WHY does he do this???? Is this a control issue???

  • You've talked about it enough. Why put yourself through the stress of an argument every time. You know how it's going to turn out every time. Just move his car to the side of the road when you go out. Don't even talk about it any more. He's not going to like his car on the side of the road, so he'll start doing something different.

  • I am thinking it is just a habit. If you haven't already. Some quiet time, tell him that you have a concern about where his car is parked. (Don't indicate that he parked it there, just say where the car is parked. - this helps to keep him from losing face.) Say that sometimes you need to get out quickly and you don't like to bother him about moving the car. Maybe even ask him what can we do about this concern- ask him for a solution. If you don't get the answer you are looking for, ask him to park elsewhere- tell him exactly where.

  • So your saying you do not have a key to his car?? See I have a key to both vehicle and he does to..So if my DH did that I would just go out and move his out of my way.

  • It sounds like it is especially if he gets upset you ask him to move cant you park on the street till he gets home than pull in behind him.

  • I dont think its a control issue, probably more of a habit.

  • It's a territorial issue. He likes that spot.
