Establishing Healthy Boundaries
When it comes to boundaries, we start by asking questions. What are the current challenges in the marriage? What do they need in the marriage to ensure that each person feels safe? The biggest problem with infidelity and sexual addiction behaviors is the act of external factors invading the marriage, thus, breaching boundaries. As a couple, focusing on what the marriage needs and establishing boundaries around those needs is important to make sure the marriage stays healthy and secure.
Examples of this include respecting each other’s feelings and figuring out each partner’s role in the marriage. Sometimes one partner will have more responsibility than the other. We need to take a look at where each individual can give and take to balance out how much is on each person’s plate. It is all about finding a healthy balance that allows the relationship to endure
