How To Forgive Your Wife Through Broken Boundaries

#15 – How To Forgive Your Wife Through Broken Boundaries

Today's episode is in response to a recent question I got from a guy named JD. Basically, his wife is doing things that he feels are truly unacceptable, so his fear is that continuing to forgive her will simply enable her bad behavior.

I love this question because it highlights two important concepts that often come into play during separation:

Forgiveness and boundaries.

How do these two concepts coexist? Should you continue forgiving your wife even when she's breaking the boundaries of the relationship?

Throughout the episode, we'll look at what forgiveness and proper boundaries each do in a relationship, and then I'll tell you my answer to JD's question and the best way for YOU to show your wife strength when she continues doing things that are unacceptable.

  1. Stephen,

    This was great. I didn’t get your advice to set boundaries or to forgive my wife, but I still did it. And it seems to be working; as she has decided ti re-engage to work on the marriage. Thank you,

  2. You’re podcast and emails have helped me greatly through the last 5 months of separation, to keep my confidence up and maintain a persona that blew my wife’s mind and made her question her decisions, they’ve allowed me to excel at a new career and impress everyone around me. Alas she has chosen to move on regardless, I stayed true to my path for months but due to midlife crisis she has broken multiple boundaries. These actions were so hurtful I’ve given up on reconciliation and am working on forgiveness and moving on to a new future. I’d love to know if you have a podcast for separated and divorced men/ fathers who are moving on like me, you truly have made me a better man but I’m still growing and need more help.

    Much manly love, Jade S
