Learn when to say yes and when to say no–to your spouse and to others–to make the most of your marriage Only when a husband and wife know and respect each other’s needs, choices, and freedom can they give themselves 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 best-seller 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 helps couples: • Set and maintain personal boundaries and respect those of their spouse • Establish values that form a godly structure and architecture for their marriage • Protect their marriage from different kinds of “intruders” • Work with a spouse who understands and values boundaries―or work with one who doesn’t

I read this book about 8 months ago-but it was someone else’s book. I felt I needed it to 1. refer to when I’m not sure if a boundary is necessary (or if I am being self centered & selfish) and 2. to share with others.

It would be nice if the book specifically placed in stops/pauses in the …

I have found this workbook very clunky to work with in comparison to other ‘couples workbooks’ I have had. I think it was just the lack of guidance on when to actually work through the workbook when you are listening to the audiobook or reading. It would be nice if the book specifically placed in stops/pauses in the book to guide the readers as they would suggest it be followed.

Another good read by Mr

Another good read by Mr. Cloud. His insights, clear presentation of how to establish and keep your boundaries and express boundaries in a healthy way have helped me grow tremendously in my relationship with my husband. I understand now where I’ve made mistakes but with this book I’ve been able to mend “many fences”. Thank you for writing both this book and “Boundaries: When To Say Yes, How To Say No”. Another book for my teenagers.

Very practical and real solutions. Encourages one to grow and mature and function healthy in the marriage relationship. To beable to enjoy it as it should be and how to navigate through difficulties. Also inspires alot of hope where there seems to be none.

Will help you immensely.

So useful and helpful. The scripture is not over-the-top for the nonreligious, and Cloud is able to explain the dynamics of a healthy relationship really, really well. I highly recommend it. It made my marriage better.

With this book and a humble heart toward God, you can change your marriage for the better.

This is a great book for marriages. I really like everything I am learning. Sometimes you don’t know if whatever you are doing is right or not, but this book helps putting things in perspective.

Life changing, good advice.

Excellent book- life changing advice and Biblically based so you can take it to the bank. Your trials in marriage and out of marriage can lead you closer or farther from who you truly are. Advice like that in this book can help you make good internal examinations and desisions. I listened to it on audible.

A great read. But you have to use the workbook …

Cloud provides thought provoking exercises in the accompanying workbook that allow the reader to tease out the principles from the text. Personal application is key to grasping the timeless principles of Boundaries in Marriage. A great read. But you have to use the workbook to receive the full import of the information,.

Great companion to the workbook by the same title!

This is the companion for the workbook and full book. This is geared towards a group setting such as a small group, but it would work for individuals. This is not a criticism, but I would like for the next series to introduce more role-playing of how to interact with spouses that are adverse to working on their personal boundaries in marriage.

Love this book
