What were your thoughts and feelings? Again, what were your thoughts and feelings? Offer evidence to support your answer. Both couples you met in the introduction were reaping the results of how they had conducted themselves in the earlier seasons of marriage. The first couple harvested a sad result; the other, a joyous one.
It's our hope that this book will help you improve your harvest. Marriage is one of God's greatest gifts to humanity. It is the mystery of living as one flesh with another human being Ephesians Marriage is first and foremost about love. It is bound together by the care, need, companionship, and values of two people, which can overcome hurt, immaturity, and selfishness to form something better than what each person alone can produce.
Love is at the heart of marriage, as it is at the heart of God himself 1 John Give a specific example. Again, give a specific example.

Although love is at the heart of marriage, it is not enough. The marriage relationship needs other ingredients to grow and thrive. These ingredients are freedom and responsibility. Page references to Boundaries in Marriage are in parentheses.

When they are not free, they live in fear, and love is damaged. When they do not, one takes on too much responsibility and resents it; the other does not take on enough and becomes self-centered or controlling. Boundaries in Marriage is fundamentally about love. It is about promoting it, growing it, developing it, and repairing it. We want to help you develop love through providing a better environment for it: one of freedom and responsibility. This is where boundaries, or personal property lines, come in. They promote love by protecting individuals. When people grow in character, they grow in the ability to set and receive boundaries in their marriages, and they mature.
When they resist hearing the word no, they remain immature. Why does resistance to the word no keep a person from maturing? The issues you take initiative to deal with today will affect the rest of your married life. And the issues you ignore or are afraid to address will do the same. Put differently, what issues are you choosing to ignore or what are you afraid to address?

You're headed toward either a Harold and Sarah marriage they're still dealing immaturely with old, old boundary issues or a Frank and Julia one they've resolved boundary issues and have gone to much deeper stages of love and maturity , and you're doing that right now. If you aren't in control of yourself, the solution is not learning to control someone else. The solution is learning self-control. Let go of those unhealthy and unhelpful goals by making them a topic of prayer; confess these desires and ask God to be at work in your mate even as he works to transform you.
Again, submit those to the Lord and his sanctifying, transforming touch. Boundaries in Marriage is about taking ownership of your own life so that you are protected and you can love and protect your spouse without enabling or rescuing him or her. So, again, welcome to Boundaries in Marriage! We hope this is a helpful resource for you, whatever condition your marriage is in. We pray that as you learn to make the word no a good word in your marriage, responsibility and freedom will then help love take deep roots in both of your hearts.
God bless you.
