    Have you discussed your feelings of being controlled with him? I've found that many men have an innate protective instinct over their kids, wives, significant others, etc. and taking care of every aspect of life that they can is their way to show that they care. He may not even realize that this bothers you, and may think that this is a way that he can show you that he cares by not making you worry about all the little details of life. Find a time that's convenient for both of you when you both have plenty of time, then sit down and have a calm, constructive conversation about it. Granted, some men really are controlling, but his reaction to the subject should tell you all you need to know about the nature of these controlling actions.

    communication... maybe he doesn't realize that you are feeling controlled. Or, maybe he is just a controlling person and that is how he will always be. If that is the case, you have to decide which is better... your independence or your marriage.
