The term boyfriend is not a legal term. If he is your husband. Then you can take legal action against him. Friendship is done on mutual understanding. It is not necessary that you stay friends for life. Friendships eventually break or want to take break. I suppose it is the latter one, in your case. The moment one tries to assert himself or herself, all these things crop up. Better to find new "bOYfrienD" than listening to above advices.
