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

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.

Love this book had GREAT ideas
Good Ideas for your Marriage
Purchase this kindle edition. Provided good ideas in helping your marriage. I thought it was a little hard to read. Realizing that it’s not a fictional story like I usually love to read, I just had to force myself to read it. This has nothing at all to do with the quality of the book, just my personal experience.

This book saved me in more ways than one. I love my husband, but he has some major character flaws that are deeply rooted, anger being the chiefest among them. I’m a passive, quiet, peace-loving person who doesn’t handle confrontation or high-stimulus very well. So when my husband started swearing and yelling quite soon after being married, I was shocked. We both come from a very religious background that encourages marriage and respect in relationships, but somehow he had missed that part. I didn’t know what to do, quite honestly. Initially, I would cry. He accused me of trying top manipulate him somehow by crying! So I learned to not show any emotion. When I wasn’t shocked and scared of him, I tried to talk things out. I never got as emotional as he did, because I didn’t think every problem required such huge reactions when we could just go straight to the problem-solving and skip the “woe is me/us” part. So he thought I was apathetic if I didn’t get as emotional or dramatic.
Very informative, good read.
