Well, Tacoma and I frequently disagree -- I don't know who your lady love is, but many of us womenfolk in 2012 do not cotton to the idea of someone "not allowing" us to do anything.
It's good that you spoke with her, and she has agreed to stop hanging out with him. So, the problem now is...what again?
If someone wasn't cool with the idea of "not allowing" them to talk to exes, then I'd just be given the ultimate sign they weren't ready for marriage.
Sounds like something a cheater would say, "You can't tell me what to do! You're just trying to control me!"
In a healthy marriage, if one partner isn't comfortable with something, you stop. It's that simple. Anything less is picking something else over your partner.
To the OP, the fact that you are even questioning your request shows me that you have a problem enforcing boundaries. It means that at some later point in your marriage she's going to do something inappropriate, and you're going to try and avoid conflict. It's classic nice guy syndrome, and in this day and age it's a great way to end up getting cheated on.
Read No More Mr. Nice Guy. Don't ever be afraid to set boundaries. If you're not comfortable with something, speak up and voice your concerns. Don't appease just to avoid conflict, especially at the expense of your own feelings.
Also, I'd verify that she's not going behind your back to talk to these guys. You can come off looking like a real chump if you kind of meekly say, "I don't like you hanging out with so and so, it makes me feel insecure." You need to be strong and confident that the decision to not hang out with these guys is the best thing for your relationship. If you aren't confident about it, she will try and test you to see if you will do anything about it. Something like start talking to them again, or plan a group date or something, just to see how you'll react. If you give in, she'll keep pushing to see how far she can go.
COguy, give me a break. I am an adult -- if my partner wants me to not do something, I probably won't do it. The whole problem is with the word "allow". I'm not a child. Nor a serf.
Sounds like you have issues regarding that. It's obviously semantics. You must be really afraid of someone telling you what to do and you feeling obligated to listen. Rather than taking it at face value, that it wouldn't be appropriate and he wants it to stop.
True or false, you accuse people in your life of "treating you like a child"?
