Boundaries in Marriage Chapter 4

This is a reading from Boundaries in Marriage by John Townsend and Henry Cloud (Zondervan 1999) chapter four.  I highly recommend listening and/or purchasing the book for all married couples, especially newlyweds.  The subject of this chapter is based on the previous chapters but is understandable on it’s own.  It is about the importance of being two people  before becoming one and importance of respecting mutual freedom and responsibility in marriage.  Click on the links below to listen.
