Publisher's Summary

It takes two individuals to become one flesh. Only when you and your mate know and respect each other's needs, choices, and freedom can you give yourselves freely and lovingly to one another. Boundaries in Marriage gives you the tools you need. Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, counselors and authors of the award-winning best seller Boundaries, show you: why boundaries are vital for a thriving, productive marriage; how values form the structure and architecture of marriage; and how to protect a marriage from intruders, whether other people, affairs, or personal idols. This audio guide helps you understand the friction points or serious hurts and betrayals in your marriage - and move beyond them to the mutual care, respect, affirmation, and intimacy you both long for.

Excellent

This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to improve their marriage. I liked it so much, I plan to order the unabridged version. I've read their book on boundaries and this is an great summary of how to have a healthy marriage by setting boundaries.

Real eye opener

An excellent book on the subject. Lacks a little of the basic information, but if you have the conept of boundaries, you will do well with this book.

Great Advice

So much good advice. I will need to listen over and over to be able to apply it all.

Thanks to the authors for clarifying the "whys" to help understand ourselves and other people.

It's tough to be forgiving over and over when you don't understand why someone is behaving badly.

I do understand that we all have issues. I will be really busy trying to heal my own personality flaws and hurts. This book helps to give a clearer focus to issues that can be too close to home for couples to see correctly.

I do recommend this book.

This will be used by our family or years to come.

Loved it. Narrators are great. Stories were impactful! Should not only be viewed individually, but by our family, couples, small groups, etc.

It's short so you won't be wasting too much time.

I kept wanting the authors to get to a deeper point. This book would better be titled "an introduction to boundaries in a Christian marriage". I'm sure there are better options for this topic.

An excellent listen, good information.

Would you consider the audio edition of Boundaries in Marriage to be better than the print version?

I have never read the book

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the straight forward way the subject was dealt with. Will definetly listen to it again.

What about Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend ’s performance did you like?

They bring to bear insights and information that I would not have gotten om my own. In my efforts to make an honest look at myself and my marriage this book has been an excellent investment of my time.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Boundaries in Marriage?

I have been able to evaluate my personal situation and know how to make a boundary in my relationships.
