Should I leave my con­trol­ling boyfriend?

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - WEEKEND TV -

My boyfriend and I have been to­gether for three years. I’m 19 now and was only 16 when we got to­gether — he’s now 25, so there’s quite a big age gap.

I was happy for him to take the lead on things when I was younger but, as I’ve got older I’ve learnt a lot and have ideas of my own. The thing is though, he’s for­ever telling me what to do and he thinks he knows best be­cause he’s older. It’s re­ally start­ing to an­noy me and he can get quite ag­gres­sive when I don’t agree with him, too.

I’m get­ting more and more un­cer­tain of my feel­ings for him. Do you think it’s time I left him? FIONA SAYS: TAKE A STAND You’re right to be con­cerned — the fact that he gets ag­gres­sive is wor­ry­ing. You are clearly al­ready un­happy about the way he is treat­ing you, and I think you need to take a stand. If he shows any sign at all of ag­gres­sion — ei­ther ver­bal or phys­i­cal — then I’d say it’s most def­i­nitely time to move on. In the BBC drama Come Home Christo­pher Ec­cle­ston’s char­ac­ter Greg was ac­cused of be­ing con­trol­ling by his es­tranged wife Marie (Paula Mal­colm­son)
