I am in tears right now. I posted this morning about what I need to do. My DH is so controlling. We just had a conversation which as usual led to huge quarrel. He says unless I change into "the woman he wants me to be", we would no longer be together. Those were his words. He says he is the "boss" of our relationship and there would only be one boss! He is the "one" in charge! Nothing I say matters. I have to always do what he says or else we would have to go our separate ways. He also says he wants a submissive wife, one who does whatever he says without question. He doesnt want a wife who has the freedom go anywhere without his agreeance. I am a SAHM so it I get cabin fever a lot. We have had a lot of fights about this and I simply cannot be anyone's lap dog. I have a strong personality and he knew this b4 he met me. I thought marriage was a partnership? Am I wrong about this?Answer Question

I'm sure he didn't get like that over night. So he knew you had a strong personality before you married him and you knew that he was a control freak. Sound like you both went into this relationship thinking you were going to control and change each other. If the marriage is that bad, LEAVE. Something must be keeping you there or you would have left him by now....don't you think?
