Setting Boundaries For Your Marriage
Because marriage is the foundation for development of the children that live within a family, it is important to discuss how to protect it. No parent will get up in the morning and think, “hmm, I think I will try to have an affair today and hurt the other members of my family.” So how does it happen? Most of the time it is a slow and gradual process that happens because we did not place boundaries up to protect our marriage from it. Why is this a difficult process to place boundaries? It is not cultural. Our culture is extremely sensual and doesn’t like rules imposed on it, this is not a good combination. Because it is not cultural we are mostly untrained on how to set up these boundaries or what they should look like. Remember that if you don’t take the time to do this God reminds us in 1 Peter 5:8, “Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for some victim to devour.”
We will spend the rest of this week discussing how to place these important boundaries around your marriage.
