Topic - Spouse’s parents
✨Sorry bit of a long one but any insights would be greatly appreciated ✨
I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years, we’re both 21 and still live at home with our parents (40 minutes away but we both drive so see each other a couple times a week) he gets on really well with my parents and I do too with his but his dad has started being quite controlling over him (it seems to be more and more over time) but it only seems to be when it’s relating to me/ my boyfriend seeing me.
His dad gets annoyed whenever my boyfriend drives to come and see me then calls him up almost every time asking when he’ll be back, my boyfriend feels like he needs to ask for permission whenever he comes to see me and dreads telling his dad where he’s going because he’ll be ‘in a mood about it’. I find this really odd because me and his dad get on well, he’s always been pleasant to me when I’m at their house and does seem like he likes me 🤷♀️
I understand he still lives at home and is under his dads roof but he is an almost 22 year old man, owns his own car and has recently started a business by himself, he feels he has little independence due to the way he’s treated. He always asks me for advice and how to handle things with his dad and I’m trying to help him in any way I can but I struggle to give him any advice because I just can’t justify the way his dad acts 🤷♀️
