It's obvious that my wife is controlling because she has convinced herself that controlling her environment and the people around her is a way to protect herself from getting hurt or disappointed. But I can't keep living my life with her threatening me to divorce when we argue, or leaving the room when she's about to lose an argument and have to apologize, or go to sleep when it's my turn to talk about my needs/feelings, or force me to stay awake to listen to her needs/feelings, or when things don't go her way she takes charge and manipulates everyone/everything around her so she can get what she wants, or anything else she does…

It's very obvious to me that if I was to strip her of her control over her environment or even just over me, she would go into an unstable and anxious state of mind and try EVEN HARDER to control what I denied her. She has a false sense of security by controlling everything around her; even the financials have to be in her control because she doesn't trust anyone but herself.

How do I end the controlling and give her the correct coping skills to deal with her fear, anxiety, and her insecurities??? Because controlling your husband and all his actions is NOT a way to have a successful marriage…
