    To the first caller, “listen to your gut”, this man does sound controlling. For your safety look into a domestic violence/domestic abuse support group. And look up books for verbal abuse, angry & controlling men. Patricia Evans and Lundy Bancroft are two good authors. A man like this is always nice to everyone but you. Please look into to this. The counselor would need to understand the verbal abuse/control dynamic. I’m finding this out after 21 years of marriage.

    I’m wondering why does Leah feel uncomfortable around the pastor? The guy may be testing to see what she puts up with. Also if she goes along with him he will have less respect for her and feel he can control her. She should not have to give up her choices for him. The niceness that others see just may be a show that will not last. If you stick around long enough, the real guy will come out.
