Linda,

Divorce is not your only option, counseling is an option, but as you said, your husband is not willing to be honest. You can't change people, people have to be willing to change themselves. If they are not willing to change, you either disassociate yourself from them or learn how to deal with it somehow. If you put your foot down and balk against him in these controlling situations, basically letting him know that you are not going to do things his way all the time and see what happens. I'm not sure what you mean by you would never know whats going on with your son.....if your son is with you most of the time and is visiting his dad, he will still pick up bad habits, but you will be a bigger influence and if he's not living with his dad, he'll be less of an influence. You just have to decide what you can and cannot live with. Let me know if you want to talk more
