How can I address my wife's controlling behavior in our relationship?

Answer from our relationship trained AI Couple Coach:


March 10, 2024

Controlling behavior can erode trust and intimacy in a relationship. Start by calmly expressing your concerns to your wife and the impact her behavior has on you and your relationship. Use "I" statements to avoid sounding accusatory and encourage open dialogue. Set clear boundaries and assert your autonomy and independence within the relationship. Seek couples therapy to address underlying issues contributing to her controlling behavior and to develop healthier patterns of communication and interaction. Consider individual therapy to explore any underlying insecurities or fears driving her need for control and to cultivate a stronger sense of self-awareness and empowerment.
