I spent time with my friends who recently got engaged and he wouldn't stop cracking jokes about her being "his woman" and how she had to listen to him now, etc but after wayyyy too many comments of the same nature it just wasn't funny anymore and I sort of doubt he was joking.
Am I reading too much into this or does it bother you too?
He also kept making comments to my boyfriend and telling him to "control me" and asking him why I wouldn't listen and asking "what did you do to her? She doesn't listen to you?"
So is he a sexist pig like I think or is this the norm?
I know my boyfriend wouldn't make comments like this to anyone.

That guy does sound sexist if he's asserting that you should be controlled by your bf and listen to him just because.
Sexism is pretty common, lots of people have these "traditional" ideas about gender roles in relationships. I dont like it either. But as far as jokes go, it depends on the nature of the joke and her response to it, the people I know, etc. However, generally its kind of awkward. I've never made jokes like that and I dont really see the humor in it. Its obviously linked to sexist expectations of women, but even jokes about sexism can be funny sometimes in a sarcastic manner. This one doesn't really sound that funny.3
