Boundaries in Marriage

Boundaries in Marriage Summary

Learn when to say yes and when to say no to your spouse to make the most of your marriage.

Only when you and your mate know and respect each other's needs, choices, and freedom can you give yourselves freely and lovingly to one another.

Boundaries are the "property lines" that define and protect husbands and wives as individuals. Once they are in place, a good marriage can become better, and a less-than-satisfying one can even be saved.

Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, counselors and authors of the award-winning bestseller Boundaries, show couples how to apply the 10 laws of boundaries that can make a real difference in relationships. They help husbands and wives understand the friction points or serious hurts and betrayals in their marriage - and move beyond them to the mutual care, respect, affirmation, and intimacy they both long for.

Boundaries in Marriage will help you:
Set and maintain personal boundaries and respect those of their spouseEstablish values that form a godly structure and architecture for their marriageProtect their marriage from different kinds of "intruders"Work with a spouse who understands and values boundaries - or work with one who doesn't
You don't have to let your marriage head toward separation or divorce. Discover how boundaries make life better today!

Before Marriage5 star

I love this book. It's like going your own private marriage counseling session and I honestly feel this is a book that should be read before you get married and kept while your married to read just in case you have a set back and need to refresh your boundaries. This book is so great I recommended to my mother and who reading it also and she loves it. I will take what I've learned and incorporate it into my everyday life. I took plenty of notes!!!55

Amazing Book!!!5 star

This is an amazing book! When I found it in April 2013, I was at my wits end. Having filed for divorce, but being told by my Christian friends that I had not given God a chance to work in my life and in my relationship. After 10 years of marriage, I, like a number of subjects in this book, had enough my husband's irresponsibility and lashes of anger. Soon after I began reading the book, I discovered my own failure and contribution to our situation. Out of fear of being verbally attacked and just wanting to avoid conflict, often times I was passive and allowed situations that warranted confrontation to go unchecked. This was a recurring pattern. So rather than setting boundaries, which I was not familiar with until reading the book, over time I felt I had no other choice but divorce, since my husband ignored my pleading and cajoling for change. Now it's September 2013, I've finished the book and I believe strongly that my marriage will survive. I immediately began practicing some of the techniques in the book and the response from my husband has been positive. We still have a ways to go in terms of fully reconciling and healing our marriage. But I no longer feel lost, anxious or afraid. I believe I have the necessary tools to help make my marriage strong, honest, and real. I thank Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend for a tremendous work. I prayed, fasted and pleaded with God to send me the answers to help me know what direction to go in with my marriage, and I found this book. I told a friend that I felt as though it was written solely and specifically for me. I am so grateful that I found this book. I shutter to think where my marriage would be if I had not.55

Great book4 star

The Boundaries series is one of my favorites. This will definitely help your marriage. ***tech issue. I have no chapters in here. So it's hard to navigate. This isn't like other iBooks. So there's a glitch or something.45
