Product Description

From the Back Cover

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

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. Do not be misled by the title.It is not aboutrules and restrictions. I am certain you will recognise yourself or yourpartner in some of the case histories.
So much of this book reallymakes sense, and helps you get out of
a vicious circle and look at things differently.Some of the suggestionsare very simple but very effective.I found it possible to read thechapters out of order if you prefer.I thoroughly recommend this to anyone,whether happily married and keen to stay that way, or if you are dealingwith problems.

This book is not about putting restrictions and rules on your partner. It is a very well written and insightfual book, and not your usual relationship guru stuff.I found it really useful to read, and easy to relate to your own experiences. It is not just theory and psycology, it has pratical useful advice and information. I think it really stood out against similar books I have read, and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone whether happily married or experiencing problems.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By C. Munyi on 12 Oct. 2008
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book as an impulsive buy that i absolutely do not regret. I am not married but in a serious relationship so dont let the fact that its called "boundaries for marriage" put you off. It helps you understand the psychology of loving relationships and helps you identify and deal with problems before they spiral out of control or reach a point where alot of hurt and damage has been done.

This book illistrates why it is important having your own boundaries as an individual and also having boundaries as a couple from things or people outside the relationship.It also highlights the importance of personal growth and understanding our own personal hang ups and how they affect our partner.It is not a one sided book as it also helps you see things from your partener's point of view and that conflicts are not a "good guy,bad guy" situation but both people contribute to the problem.It then gives solutions on how to work through your own issues and what your partner needs to work for a healthier relationship.Examples of couples's problems,attitudes and emotions are used throughout the book which are easy to identify with.

Boundaries for marriage "holds the key for mutual respect and provides the tools for making your relatiomship everything you want it to be."

I would also recommend it for couples that are intending to marry as it gives u a picture of what a good functional marriage should be like and that marriage is work but the rewards are priceless.

Format: Paperback
The concepts in this book are really valid, truthful and useful. The reason i wrote this review however is that i did not realise when i purchased this book that the bible was quoted every page. It has been too much for me and i cannot continue reading it. I warn that my view is that non-christians will struggle with this book.

Absolutely loved this book - probably the most balanced teaching on marriage I've come across. I even caught my husband with his nose in it once or twice! Have just given the book to a friend. Would highly recommend it.

Found this book to be excellent and timely, I often get in a muddle with how much to take, what is fair in a relationship, how long is the second mile and how often do you go it, well, this helped put things into perspective and I straightaway bought several copies to give to friends who were also struggling with these issues, how to have a really good relationship in a marriage, which seemed at times pretty impossible but now I know better! It's sooo constructive!
