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.

3 I set limits [STRIKE]to[/STRIKE] on my girlfriend's public behavior.
4 I regulate what my girlfriend is allowed to do in public and what she's 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.
