    I don't allow

    Are they all correct and mean the same?

    1 I don't allow my girlfriend to do whatever she wants in public.
    2 I don't permit my girlfriend to do everything she wants in public.
    3 I set limits to my girlfriend's public behavior.
    4 I regulate what my girlfriend is allowed to do in public and what not.

    Grammatically, they're all correct. They don't necessarily mean the same.

    Please be aware that the subject matter (the subjugation/control/abuse of women) is very contentious. I strongly recommend that you find a different topic for your example sentences in future.

    I'm closing this thread.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
