That was my first thought. Some men are ok with being controlled. And I think that has always been the case, this isn't a modern society/women's lib type deal. Whether the friend is being how he is out of being controlled, being over the moon in love, or something else is not the business of anyone, though certainly it can harm relationships and even people. Unfortunately, discussion or action can destroy the friendship, though it may make sense to discuss with him in private sone time.
