Customer Reviews for Boundaries in Marriage, Hardcover
This is an excellent book. Be prepared... this is not about how to change your mate, but it does teach you what you do have control over and how to do it in a godly way. There is so much in this book if you have problems setting boundaries.
I have learned a lot about my self and lot about my spouse. I bought this book because the wife was having online affairs. It has taught me a lot. I recommend this book to any preacher or layperson who need how to council married people.
I would recommend this book to any married person who wants to work on their relationship and keep it good. We often overlook one another's boundaries and I believe working our way through this book is very beneficial...along with the workbook as well.
I chose the 5 star since that is your highest rating. But I personally rate this book OFF THE CHARTS! WOW! Boundaries In Marriage should be a requirement to read before anyone is married, and if you are having any type of conflict in your marriage, you and spouse should definitely read Boundaries in Marriage and also do the workbook and get the Participants gude as well. If I were a Pastor or Church leader, I would order a set for each person in my congregation plus some extras for newcomers. This is only the third book in my posession that I am de-binding - hole punching - laminating and putting into a 3 ring binder for easy and permanent reference. The front and back covers go on the front and back of my 3 ring binders. I am referring people I know to order Boundaries In Marriage.
What can I say...this is such an excellent book. It's well written, easy to read, simply put, "Hard to put down." I came from a broken home & have been a "pleaser" & many times over forfeitted my God given boundaries, whch is an unhealthy thing to do, but out of sheer ignorance, that's exactly what I did. The beauty is my heavenly Father has given me grace, knowledge, and understanding that change can take place. I have read a variety of books and I have found this particular book to really "click"...the style of writing appeals to my personal taste. I am so impressed I am going to purchase some other titles as well. In my opinion, an excellent investment!
This product was purchased and is being used by our Prison Ministry in our local county prison. We have just completed lesson six of the study and it has been well received by the men. We are witnessing great leaps of growth.
I thought that this book was really good. I am going to get a couple of copies for my cousin to read before he gets married. I even hoope I can get my husband to read it but I doubt it. It has helped me to understand a lot and that will help me to "understand" him better.

Review 14 for Boundaries in Marriage, Hardcover
Date:April 7, 2008
Profound book. Ideally suited for husbands and wives around the time that the honeymoon wears off. It goes into great detail on how to build a healthy relationship by building healthy individuals. The concepts are helpful to all aspects of life, but typically we don't realizing we need to read a book like this until a problem arises.
I was at the end of my rope after several years of marriage where my husband was verbally disrespecting me and disregarded most of my opinions or feelings. I was ignored for the most part and treated more like an employee than a wife. A friend recommended this book to me and I was amazed at how I had given up my personal boundaries without even knowing it! I gained some of the most encouraging insight into how to establish boundaries in a firm and loving way and, even though my husband resisted at first, he learned that certain behaviors were no longer acceptable and began to change the way he interacted with me!
Boundaries in Marriage is an excellent book for those of us who have been married for many years; It can strengthen an already good marriage, and I would highly recommend it for premarital counseling along with the work book.
Excellent book. Had a few people tell me that Boundaries in Marriage, was based in selfishness. I didn't find that to be the case. I felt it was very balanced, and made you look at yourself and your motives.
