Many times people exhibit controlling behaviors without realizing it. Other times people are controlled, and don’t know how to handle it in their marriage. We’ll talk about both sides.

In this show, we’ll discuss control in three different ways:
1. How to know if you’re controlling (you may not realize it!)
2. What to do if you are controlling (it’s not too late to change things)
3. How to handle being controlled by your spouse

One thought on “[PODCAST] Could You Be Controlling… And Not Realize It?- The Dr. Joe Show Podcast

    I have recognized a do have some ( but I don’t want to at all) controlling behavior as a wife in some situations. Obviously, not intentional and for sure NOT wanting to be this way. I think some of this on my part has developed over years over watching my father control women and me making sure no one ever does this to me. Never did I mean to do it to anyone. My husband has been naive and made some choices that could have easily put himself in vurnable positions, and this does make me afraid at times because I am overly cautious to keep myself away from anything that I feel could lead me down another path even if i innocently got there. He does many things with the avoidance motive… and I am not sure how this should make me feel. I want him to do things from his heart and because we both are on the same page of protecting our marriage not because he is worried about upsetting me. I feel we both lose with this happening. His motives are not sincere (which hurts me and tells me we are not on the same page ) and then he also will resent me because he feels he can’t do as he wants. Many of our issues over 20 yrs together is he doesn’t like confrontation with anyone …. not just me. So he can be a little deceptive in certain things he shares with me so I don’t get upset. This only complicates my ability more to “not control” I guess of trusting he is thinking thru some of his choices. Many times it’s been over things I wouldn’t have gotten upset over but now he has hurt my trust. It seems to be a cycle going on here…. honesty, avoidance, control and trust We have attended Marriage Helper workshop and learned so much. This is still an area that seems to be an issue.
