Boundaries in Marriage: Understanding the Choices That Make or Break Loving Relationships


Learn how setting healthy boundaries in your marriage can strengthen--or even save--your relationship with your spouse.

Most marital conflicts are boundary conflicts where one person crosses the lines of responsibility and respect. When couples learn to embrace personal responsibility and to respect each other's freedom, love is allowed to thrive.

Whether you're happy in your marriage and want to keep growing, or if you're struggling with increasing disconnection, Boundaries in Marriage will give you the tools you need to:

  • Set and maintain personal boundaries while respecting those of your partner.
  • Understand and practice two key ingredients to a successful marriage: freedom and responsibility.
  • Establish values that form a godly structure and architecture for your marriage.
  • Protect your marriage from different kinds of "intruders."
  • Work with a spouse who is resistant to boundaries.

In Boundaries in Marriage, Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, counselors and authors of the New York Times bestseller Boundaries, will show you how healthy marriages are marriages with boundaries. They promote love by protecting individuals.

Christian advice on marriage. Not terrible advice even if you're not Christian (or are Christian but are dubious of Biblical marriage advice). Focuses on how to respect each other and cultivate real love based on mutual respect and empathy. There was nothing novel for me but clearly, a lot of people could benefit from these views.
