Okay, for those of you who are married or even those in a long-term monogamous relationship, when you got married/got with your partner, did you stop doing things with your friends? Are you only supposed to do things with your spouse now?
I ask because my fiancee gets absolutely DISTRAUGHT whenever I bring up the idea of having a girls night or even just wanting to go to a bookstore and read for a bit. Last Friday was a good friends birthday and I went to dinner with her. The four days and nights leading up to that he wouldn't sleep or eat, because he was depressed that I wanted to go. He says he just doesn't understand why I would want to do anything without him when he never wants to be away from me. He claims that I do not love him in the way that he loves me. He never goes to do anything with any of his friends though I try to get him to. He won't agree unless I go too.
Help ladies. Is this normal?

It's not normal, he has issues. Time to find a new man unless you want to live like this the rest of your life. It could be warning signs of emotional abuse.

That might be normal at the beginning of the relationship when you're still in "obsessive" mode, but if it's been a while, no.
It's perfectly normal (and healthy) to do things without each other every once in a while!
