Boundaries, Co-Dependency and Divorce


When it comes to relationships, a lot of us jump to the idea of compatibility. But do we understand the nuance of that term?

It doesn’t have to mean a “matching set” dynamic, or finding the perfect piece to your puzzle. Your partner doesn’t have to save you, fix you, or complete you. In fact, when a relationship turns towards reliance – complete reliance – you’re not experiencing compatibility, but codependency. It’s not about you, your partner, your family, or happiness – it’s about saving the marriage you believe you need, even if you don’t.

In this episode of The Divorce Doctor Podcast, Terri Cole and I dive into codependency and boundaries through both marriage and divorce.
