  • Possibly they get into the mode when at work and it carries over to the family, or they get so much control from their bosses at work that they in turn direct their frustration on the family- the old pecking order deal. Or they feel insecure in their jobs and try to control what they do have some control over.

  • What men are you talking about. My DH is far from controlling. You shouldn't make generalized statements like that. I know lots of women are controlling.
    People that are controlling are generally very insecure in relationships, so they feel that if they control another, they can make everything right. Controlling behaviour usually escalates to abuse, both physical and emotional.
