Found an older book at a sale and wanted to know if anyone has read through it. Titled "Boundaries in Marriage: Understanding the Choices that Make or Break Loving Relationships" by Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr. John Townsend.
I don't usually browse through the huge quantities of books at estate sales, but something drew me over to this small area and to this book. Same for when I found "Love and Limerence" by Dorothy Tennov - a few years ago I randomly stopped by a yard sale and then looked through the books. Strange how this happens. I've begun reading it and will try to update this post.
I would rather adjust my life to your absence than adjust my boundaries to accommodate your disrespect.

I'm very interested in what you think of this book. One of the key issues I have in my marriage is bad boundaries. My WW has significant mental health issues, and in caring for those I let my boundaries completely dissipate. If you think it's worthwhile I may try to find a copy and read it as well.
Thanks for posting about it!
