Controlling husband

by Tal

My husband is very controlling. He tracks me with my phone. I can't do anything or go anywhere without his approval...otherwise, I'm cheating. I've never given him any reason to think that I would cheat. He says he's just been cheated on in the past and I should consider his feelings about that. He is a violent person and is always mad about something.

I've caught him lying about many things. He even told his employer that he is an ex-Marine...what??? He also made a comment last week that about make me puke. He said that if it doesn't work out with us that he can just go for my 18 year old daughter since we look just alike.

I mean, isn't that gross or is it just me?!

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
