  • Fireproof was a great Movie and a Great Lovedare Book/Test. HOWEVER, the key question is "do you really belong with this person?"
    As an example, my dh and I did the whole thing and we loved the movie. At the end, one of the chapters was about the true problem in our marriage, and I realized that patience, the essence of this book, is only worthwhile if you are close emotionally with your spouse.
    If you have issues like infidelity, then no matter how patient and loving you are, the real issue won't go away.

  • I will let you all know, Dard. :) Tomorrow's "Dare" is about patience. I must not retaliate with any unkind words at all. I must be patient and use kind words all day, even if he pisses me off. I cannot say anything if I am angry. Can't let him know I'm doing this dare, either. I think it will strengthen our communication, which is what I think we could use most. :)
