Boundaries with the opposite sex may not be something we’re comfortable talking about, but it’s a necessary conversation.
It’s easy to say we should have boundaries in a marriage, but then actually talking through the specifics of what those boundaries look like is something most couples don’t actually sit down to do.
A few years ago in the media, a political leader who talked about his boundaries with the opposite sex sparked a fury of heated conversations around the country. In fact, an article about this very topic on my blog sparked some additional controversy as well. It’s clear this is a topic people don’t always agree on.
So what’s too much when it comes to boundaries, and what is not enough?
Boundaries With the Opposite Sex
What does it practically look like to protect your marriage by setting boundaries, specifically with your interactions with the opposite sex?
Last week on the Love + Relationships Podcast we talked through the boundaries we set with our emotions, and today on the podcast we’re talking through the boundaries we set up with our interactions on Part 2 of this three part series with my husband.
The conversation you’re about to hear is about the things WE have chosen to do for our marriage. You may agree with some of it, and you may not…but let’s start by having the conversation, and getting comfortable talking through it.
