I want to know what specifically is a controlling, possessive relationship and what causes it? How can it be corrected? When someone is crying and yelling at another in a relationship, why does this happen? Can this relationship be saved?

Controlling, possessive behaviour can be any number of things and can be the result of any number of things. You have asked a very broad question that could have multiple answers to it and it won't help you. Yes, in some circumstances the people can change (particularly if you address the cause) and the relationship can be saved, in others it can't. It is likely that counselling will be needed; and it will need a lot of work by both parties.

It might be more helpful if you had a more specific thing you were asking about if you are after advice.

Well, why would someone not trust you to be with your friends (whether it's girlfriends or a friend who is a boy)? Why would they have to constantly text you if you do get together with someone else and why would they feel the need to be there with you? This person feels control over you and afraid to let you do something separate from them. What does that mean and how does someone get like that?
