Does it feel like a never-ending cycle with your partner when it comes to setting boundaries with the family? 

Maybe you both end up getting stuck on what you should do when your mother-in-law gives TEN gifts, when you both told her only two. 

What are the missteps in our relationship when it comes to boundaries?

My husband and business partner joins me for today's episode on boundaries. Why bring in Greg? In a heterosexual cis-gender relationship, he has the other side of the experience when it comes to holiday boundaries. 

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Who should set the boundaries with extended family
  • What it means when we're at different points in our journey with boundaries (e.g., one gets defensive; one is critical)
  • Important decisions to consider when it comes to setting boundaries with family
