I know that - and I didn't say it was strictly only guys who do that. I was just commenting on the cases where the husbands take this viewpoint, since this is the OP's situation. And I didn't say anything about "forced prostitution," just that one aspect of a whole human being seems valued more than another and a degree of a sense of ownership seems very much a part of it. The OP used the word "possessive" to describe her husband's behavior, and said that she is feeling "like a child in a terrible custody battle." That is a key aspect of her story which prompted my response.
