Our expert says:
Long distance relationships are always difficult. But a man with such an obsolete idea of marriage that his wife isn't "allowed" to see friends and relatives is a fossil with no respect for her, and needs to revise his ideas. Those crude old ideas ( suggesting a very insecure man ) would cause problems even if he wasn't at a distance and still trying to control what he should not control.
It is YOUR time, not his. ( Slavery was abolished some years ago ).
I also wonder what more may be going on. How is HE spending HIS time while abroad ? Is he as solitary and monk-like as he seems to want you to be nun-like ? Or is he feeling guilty, perhaps, about his behaviour while away, and worrying that you might be doing likewise ?
Marriage counselling is needed, and urgently, especially if he isnt going to be home for long.
You don't mention children. Especially if there are no children, maybe divorce wouldn't be such a bad idea, if he isn't prepared to change his antiquated and unjust expectations
