Control, surely, would be trying to control when and where he goes, who he sees, and what he does.
When two people live together, it's perfectly reasonable for reasons ranging from preventing anxiety to simple trivial things like whether to leave the front-door light on ; to expect each other to give the person left at home, a reasonable reliable indication of when they expect to be back, and to call and revise this if it seems likely that their activities will over-run the estimate.
Whether they should feel obliged to say exactly where they're going and what they'll be doing is a bit different, and depends on the relationship. If one isn't doing anything sneaky there's no particula reason to avoid being clear about it ; but some filks might fel tetchy about having to provide such details, mainly perhaps feeling as if they're having to report to Mom on what they're up to.
