24: Are You Out of Bounds? 7 Ways You May Be Crossing the Line in Your Marriage

In football, going out-of-bounds means not making a score or losing a game. But if you’re going out-of-bounds in your marriage, that means total tragedy!

In this episode, let’s discuss seven of the most common problems married couples encounter because they fail to set boundaries. Discover how negative patterns of behavior, communication, and mindset can ultimately destroy your marriage if you don’t take action now. Learn why boundaries are not meant to stifle you but to create healthy, even necessary limitations on how you speak and treat your spouse when times get tough.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • What stonewalling is and why it happens to some couples
  • Habits that disconnect you from your spouse
  • What to do when other people are speaking negatively about your spouse
  • How damaging secrets are
  • Why you shouldn’t stay in an abusive relationship

Listen in and count your score out of the seven-out-of bounds points. Are you doing all of them? How can you break the cycle? This in-your-face episode will enlighten and empower you to change your ways and save your marriage before it’s too late!



“Marriage is hard enough without the extended family drama.” – Amy

“If you will not do it, read it, write it, say it, think it, act it without your spouse standing right next to you. That is a clue that it is not OK in your marriage.” – Amy
