  • I had one and I divorced him. I decided that his demands were not reasonable and cruel. Like, not reasonable that I worked from 9am-10pm then came home and cooked dinner that he would throw on the floor if I chewed too loud for his comfort. Not reasonable. So if his behavior is just flat out ridiculous, then I would leave.

  • no, but I had a boyfriend (we were engaged for a while too) who was like that. it wasnt like that at first, but he became very controlling and abusive. he'd do the whole "my father used to beat me, i'm so sorry" excuse and I felt bad for him and felt it was ME who needed to change. He didnt like me hanging out with my friends, yet if I didnt invite him he felt rejected. there was a younger chick who had a crush on him and he loved it. one time, she wanted to meet him in private a few hours away and she didnt want me to go. he felt guilty that she was intimidated by me (because I was dating him) so he went.... yes I know it makes me sound like an idiot. but I am a stronger woman now and looking back I should have been stronger and left him sooner.
