How to Deal With a Dominating/Controlling Husband
Dealing with a Controlling and Dominating Husband is a very painful issue. Being controlled for every small detail is a big nuisance. Submitting to the husband’s desires, wishes and fancies, definitely takes a toll on the woman’s health.
Here are some ways in which one can deal with a dominating husband:
A husband tends to lose trust from his wife when he feels insecure about their relationship. Do not let insecurity creep into your marriage. Let your husband know what you are doing and whom you are with. Not letting him know your whereabouts will cause him to become suspicious. Open communication is necessary between married couples. Let him know if you do not like a particular behavior of his. Communication is the key to all problems.
Do not Give A Chance :
You as a woman have your own dreams and desires; once you accept unexplainable behavior from your husband he will continue to repeat it. Be firm when you are right and stand up for what you think and believe. You do not have to agree on everything, what is important is how you learn to disagree in the right way.
Do Not Take in Abuse:
Do not take in physical abuse from your husband. It is a sign of weakness. Let your husband understand that you are his better and equal half. Whatever decision has to be taken, it has to be taken by you both as a couple. For this to happen, you should learn to respect each other, and not to hate each other.
Family and Friends:
If things get out of hand then seek the advice of your family and friends. Your husband may behave in such a manner, because of his past or maybe because he had a father who was very dominating. Consult a therapist to help sort out such psychological problems as a couple.
Marriage is a holy partnership between the two of you. Imbalances in control distort the relationship. Divorce is not the answer to this problem, healing your relationship of all the misgivings and learning to respect each other will greatly add to developing the bond between the two of you.
