Has anyone read Love Dare or watched Fireproof? If so, what did you think of it?

 My husband & I did the 40 day love dare. We both enjoyed it. The Fireproof movies is wonderful

 No, but I know a lot of people who have and benefited from either or both.

I refuse to subscribe to any advice/program that is based off of a movie that stars Kirk Cameron.

 I never finished the Love Dare book. Our marriage wasn't in bad straights and I didn't have the drive to complete it. Not sure why I started it in the first place.

 They based the movie off the book. Just fyi.

Either way. *shrugs* I'm not religious at all. I can't handle Kirk Cameron.

 Yes. DH and I were having issues and I was on the verge of leaving. My SIL sat us down and watched Fireproof with us and then she gave her Love Dare cards to DH. I think it's an awesome idea, it helped DH and I for a little while but then he gave up on it. I still have no trust for him, but at least it helped our marriage stay together longer than it would have so we could work things out better.

No... We're not religious and it just seemed to be very focused on religion.  We do our own things to keep our marriage and relationship strong though and those (for us) work amazingly.

I don't think the book is totally about religion, it's about marriage, but the movie is. I've seen the movie, but I haven't read the book yet, but from what I've heard it's written about marriage from a Christian point of view.

Yeah, it won't work if only one person is into it, but Kirk's character kept it up even when his wife basically spit in his face. Not saying life is like a movie, but the whole point was to keep doing what's right no matter what.
