If you’ve noticed lately that your significant other has started to dominate you and you just don’t agree with this “communication method” anymore, read on and discover a few very useful tips on how to deal with a controlling spouse.

Dealing with a controlling person is never easy, especially when that person is someone you care about.

Yet, you shouldn’t let yourself be blinded by love, because no one deserves to be controlled.2

If you’ve noticed that your partner has begun to order you like you’re some soldier who needs to follow your commanding officer, if they are always trying to change you into someone that you are not, if they expect you to do everything the way they want and if you don’t, they just freak out, then you should take some action and do something to change their behavior.

Just remember: your partner will not learn to respect you until you learn to respect and love yourself first!

Here are a few extremely helpful tips on how to deal with a controlling spouse that you should keep in mind if you are trying to solve this problem in your relationship:

1. Notice the Signs of a Controlling Partner

One of the first things you should do if you want to learn how to deal with a controlling spouse is to notice the signs of a controlling partner.

If your spouse makes all the choices in your life, even the things you wear or eat, if they get extremely angry every time you make a small mistake, if they criticize you all the time, if they act like they are superior and even if they often embarrass you just to teach you a lesson, then you should really do something to correct this situation in order to save your marriage.

Start by Changing Yourself

You can not control/change another person, you can only control how you react to them. Look in the mirror every day & say "I love you, you are loveable, you are worth it"~ Louis Hay May I also recommend reading the book 'The Secret' EXCELLENT read...

I'm in a Controlling relationship right now. I really appreciate this advice. Thank you so much I'll definetely use it towards my relationship. He tries to control what I wear, eat and do. But I don't like him I put my foot down and stick but what I want to do. The worst thing you could ever do is do whatever that person wants you to do, because then they expect that everytime. Thank you.

The first thing you have to remember is that this is NOT Love........he does NOT love YOU......you just thought he did.......get out of the relationship and if it is meant to be then it will, when he becomes healthy....do NOT let this type of personality negatively impact your emotional, spiritual, psychological and physical health!

I agree.....I spent years in a controlling and verbally abusive relationship.....he didn't want to see it at all......he somehow got off on the boost it gave him when he put me down and felt in control. I am finally going through a very difficult divorce......there was no other way. My advice is to steer clear of these men in the first place.
