So in the movie they talk about a book called "The Love Dare". The basics of it is that Kirk Cameron sees his marriage failing so he gets advice from his Dad to follow this book and it is 40 days of different things to make your marriage last if it is on the rocks or make it even better it is already good.
After some thought J and I decided that we wanted to do it. So you purchase the book, one for each of you and you read each days lesson and you do what it says and then you make notes in the book about how your spouse responded to what you did/or didn't do.
We are starting TODAY, Thursday, September 17, 2009. Today's lesson is about patience. I wish I would have brought the book with me so I could quote some things in it. It was very good and eye opening. Anyway, the thing you have to do today is so nothing negative to your spouse. So that is what J and I plan to do...NO NEGATIVITY! Here we go with day 1.
Just a note: our marriage is not failing. We have a pretty good one on most accounts and probably better than most but we want it to be even better so we thought it couldn't hurt to give this a whirl. I will keep you updated on our progress.
