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. Cloud and Townsend, counselors and authors of the best selling Boundaries, share with you:

Why boundaries are vital for a thriving relationship
How values form the structure of marriage
How to protect your marriage from intruders
Why and how each partner needs to establish personal boundaries
How to work with a spouse who understands and values boundaries - and how to work with one who doesn't
Drs. Cloud and Townsend help you understand the friction points and even the serious hurts in your marriage - and move beyond them to mutual care, respect, affirmation, and intimacy.

This book is a great resource for married couples. There was so much to digest I had to listen twice. The authors do a great job presenting the material, if your looking to improve your marriage this book will help.

Powerful Tool

I purchased this book to learn and grow and that I did! I learned areas that I was contributing to making my marriage weak, and learned where I can improve, grow and change immediately. I have personally grown with every Cloud/Townsend book. I also enjoyed the narrator, he told the story well, but I do prefer Cloud/Townsend themselves to read, I still enjoyed this one very much! Get it and make a difference in your own marriage, if not to save it, STRENGTHEN it! God Bless You on your journey!

Another Marvellous Book About Boundaries.

I like Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. They know exactly what they are writing about in regards to boundaries. If you are married I encourage you to buy and to listen to this audiobook. If you are single then I still encourage you to buy this audiobook and listen to it. It will give you some ideas of what couples go through in marriages, should you decide that at some point you want to get married. ;}

Ok book

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The principles of this book could be good, but unless you follow the Christian faith you may not be able to follow it all. Also the book talks a lot about women being house wives and men struggling with long working hours so a little sexist

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend ?

It was well read

Any additional comments?

If you can pull out their principles they could be very useful in a relationship

Every married person should read this

Best marriage advice book I've ever read/heard - only regret is not reading it at the start of (or before) my marriage!
