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

Great Boundaries Book

 on April 17, 2018
I live with an emotionally abusive husband. I had tried to get him to understand how he was hurting me, but it would only turn into arguments. I finally decided to go to counseling. I learned that I had a part in the problem. I was a codependent. I needed to learn to set boundaries. However, I was alto told that my husband’s personality was such that he would never get better and I was gently being pushed into leaving him. She asked me every week what it was going to take for me to leave him. I read this book and now I have hope again. Using Scripture, this book outlines different problems and how to set clear, fair boundaries. While I’ve just finished the book, I have already started using the boundaries. This book gives good, clear examples in a chart form that is very easy to understand. With practice and time I will get better and learn how to set good boundaries. I cannot change my husband, but with good boundaries, he can learn and change himself. If he doesn’t, and some don’t, then I will know I did my very best. I will also know how to deal with others in a healthy way. I no longer feel confused. I like the way this book values marriage. I had told my counselor I really wanted the marriage to work, but sometimes I didn’t (when he was abusive, which was at least weekly). It also states that there are times it just doesn’t work out, but if you’ve learned to set good boundaries then you can accept the fact it isn’t going to work.

Excellent resource for EVERYONE

What a fantastic book to help understand relationship dynamics together with God’s design for our lives in these relationships. Whether you have a spiritual connection to our Creator or are secular in your beliefs, there is a wealth of information here for you to understand.

Read it

It is helpful because it teaches a person how to express oneself in marriage and the importance to be truthful and doing things out of freedom and love and taking responsibility for one’s action. I gave it 4 stars because I do not agree with some proposed actions.

I believe this should be a REQUIRED read for anyone about to get married. It is a must read and study. I am studying it together with my boyfriend BEFORE I get married again. It is a Christian perspective that is very well done. Has every day life applications.

Well written book. Cloud & Townsend do a good job of defining boundaries & when to use them in marriage. I wish they would have also devoted a chapter to how a spouse can use “boundaries” to stall the restoration of a marriage. Boundaries are a good thing, they can be used as a form of punishment and misused as well. I think readers could benefit by having some examples of a spouse taking a boundary too far, to the point that it becomes punishment or rmotiinsl abuse. Would have like to have seen this theme developed & explained to readers.

Most important book for any relationship!

One of the best books every written on marriage. And it’s not just for marriage, in my opinion. Big huge part of problems in marriage is not having healthy boundaries. We are not talking about walls. We talking about respect. I love all the books written by Dr Henry Cloud and Dr John Townsend.

Not Much To Miss Here

Not written clearly or concisely. Brings so many instances into play, but does not go far enough to explain possible solutions to any issue.

This is one of the few self-help books for intelligent, organized individuals

 on May 3, 2018
By Salvatore Facista
This is one of the few self-help books for intelligent, organized individuals. It will not make as much sense to someone who is dismissive or doesn’t understand mutual needs. It helped me see some of the issues in my relationship that I had previously not. I found the first half of the book most helpful, but read the rest because it was useful. I would not necessarily recommend this to someone who did not care for Christian introspection.

I am assuming the product works for some, but opening to the introduction talks about how the bible views marriage and neither of us have any religious affiliations. Returned product to find something that would fit our lifestyle a bit better
