Can we implement boundaries with our spouse? Is it loving? Is it Christ-centered? 

 

Boundaries in marriage may seem counterintuitive to some, but we believe it should be normal and natural in a marriage. 

 

In this episode, Dr. Kim and Christina share about boundaries with your spouse: why you need them, examples of what they might be, and how to implement them. If you have never thought about boundaries with your spouse, we hope this conversation is helpful to you and that it provides you with some great talking points that you and your spouse can explore as you work to have a healthier, happier, holier marriage.
