Hi- on that site, each of the text boxes is col-md-12. But the boss pointed out to me that they are not all the same size going  down the page.

Any idea why? Thanks.

It is because you are nesting some of your elements, and being inconsistent with the application of element-specific CSS.

For example:
<div class="content">
  <div class="container">
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col-md-12">

        <!-- Slider (Parallax Slider) -->

        <div id="da-slider" class="da-slider" style="background-position: 2000% 0%;">
          [ ... snip ... ]
        </div>
      </div>

      <!-- Slider ends -->

      <div class="bor"></div>

      <div class="main-content">
        <div class="row">
          <div class="col-md-7 main-box">
            [ ... snip ... ]
          </div>
          <div class="col-md-5">
            <div class="main-box">
              [ ... snip ... ]
            </div>
          </div>
        </div>
      </div>

      <!-- CTA starts -->

      <div class="cta">
        <div class="row">
          <div class="col-md-9">
            [ ... snip ... ]
          </div>
          <div class="col-md-2">
            [ ... snip ... ]
          </div>
        </div>
      </div>

Lines 2's class="container" gives that div a specific width from Bootstrap, and a max-width from your style.  The subsequent class="row" and class="col-md-12" (3 & 4) show up "normal" - the actual box width is 970, plus 15px gutter margin on each side.  But further down, on 18, you're still in the original row while creating another one.  Any col-x-n divs there will be missing some space as Bootstrap creates yet another gutter space on the sides.

Also, look at the difference in approaches between line 19 and lines 22-23.  One is consolidated, the other is not.  For the unconsolidated approach, any styles will be additive.

Restructure the HTML to be more consistent, with a focus on de-nesting items.  A simple example of what that snippet could look like:
<div class="content">
  <div class="container">
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col-md-12">
        <!-- Slider (Parallax Slider) -->
      </div>
      <div class="bor"></div>
    </div>
    <div class="row main-content">
      <div class="col-md-7 main-box">
        [ ... snip ... ]
      </div>
      <div class="col-md-5 main-box">
          [ ... snip ... ]
      </div>
[ ... etc ... ]
