Build some healthy boundaries.


When it comes to being connected and being intimate with one another, a lot of people think that in order to do those things, you have to be with each other at all times. That’s not true.

Marriages and relationships in general should have a semi-permeable type boundary. Your friends and family should be able to connect with you as well as your spouse without affecting your hopes and dreams.

When this doesn’t occur, you can often feel stifled or smothered in a relationship. That is similar to a mold that can grow in a relationship. Once you see this happening, you have to stop it at that moment. Talk with each other about making those healthy boundaries.
