Has anyone felt or rather put a boundary in place pertaining to no contact with certain family members due to their lack of respect and honor towards you & your partner as a couple?

Yes. My ex-fiance and I had a bit of a boundary in place when it came to his mom. She hated when the two of us were together, and despised me--I think she saw me as competition. We'd leave if she started in on us, or just plain tune her out, and avoided being around her because she couldn't leave us alone. That boundary was one of the main reasons we lasted as long as we did--we were a united front against her lack of respect for our relationship.

I remember a few years back one of my cousins have been having some problem with my girl and I made sure I set him straight and tell him to stop talking to her. Some times families don't get it and we have to let them know that we are not having it. I tell people that all the time whatever the problem is my spouse is always right until I get to the bottom of the problem because I am going to be the one living with her not my family. So make sure you peeps know that you are not willing to let them walk all over your girl/boy then you should be ok.
