Welcome!! Not completely understanding your post. You feel like YOU need to ask permission for everything? Then girl you need to stop asking permission.
He trying to control you. I went through it and it sucked. Our friends could see that he treated me like a kid and they told him he was wrong. He doesn't do it now.
The dominant partner will control when given the opportunity. Honestly, if it is about money and he is trying to save money to make life better for the family, then you need to support him. However, if he is spending "his" money on what he wants and doesn't give you any money to spend then yes he is being controlling. I might could see his point with the sell from home theory, because I know a handful of women that ended up paying for the product and couldn't sell it. Its a waste of time and money. If you can get a job that doesn't require you giving a company money, then go get one. I know lots of moms (and a couple of dads) who work part time. They don't make much more than to cover babysitting and gas but its their way of doing something that is all theirs and keeps the boredom at bay. Tell him that you want a job and you are going to get one and that's final. And do it. You are allowing him to stop you.
Sorry your being treated like that, put your foot down and tell him you are not a child that needs directions from HIM!
