The Mail on Sunday - You - - Food Sarah Wilson -

I re­cently got en­gaged to the most won­der­ful man who I thought was my Mr Right. He in­tro­duced me to his fam­ily, telling them that he was go­ing to marry me – it was great. But since then he has be­come more con­trol­ling. There are cer­tain things he doesn’t like about me and he wants to change. If I com­plain he gets an­gry. I can’t visit my fam­ily and friends, who live nearby. He al­ways wants me to stay in­doors and if I go out and he spots me he says, ‘I told you to stay in­doors. Go home.’ His con­trol­ling ways are mak­ing me fall out of love with him. The warn­ing signs are loud and clear. Con­trol­ling men are of­ten very charm­ing at the be­gin­ning of a re­la­tion­ship but once they feel that you have fallen in love, their need to dom­i­nate soon emerges. The clas­sic sign is that he is try­ing to cut you off from fam­ily and friends, and con­trol­ling where you go and what you do. He is un­likely to change as he prob­a­bly de­nies hav­ing a prob­lem and blames you for his be­hav­iour. You need to end the re­la­tion­ship. This is not love and he could be­come even more con­trol­ling. Tell your­self that you are lucky you have seen the signs be­fore you got mar­ried or had chil­dren.
