It's a book and a movie. Sort of a way to help a marriage survive through hardships. Anyone here implemented the "love dare"? How did it turn out?

I did the Love Dare on my husband about 3 years ago. It really helped how he treated me, it didn't fix all the problems in our marriage and we had a lot to get through after I completed it but it made him more open to fixing our problems. To this day he has no idea I actually did the Love Dare on him.

 We watched it, after some friends suggested it. It was the most ridiculous movie I can ever remember seeing! No, we didn't implement the 'love dare'.

I think it's a great movie. I took the religious side of it with a grain of salt as I'm not religious, but I felt the sentiments were great & worthwhile. I haven't had a need to implement the love dare thankfully, but I do try to have my marriage reinforced with similar concepts.

I agree. Kirk Cameron grates my nerves. The acting in the movie was horrible and the strong religious tone of the story was more than I could swallow without an eye roll.

 I don't even know who the actors are, but I agree. We watched maybe an hour, before we just quit. It was silly for the first little bit, but then just stupid.

On one of our first evenings together SO and I watched it together, and he gave me a copy of the Love Dare for my birthday.  A lot of the principals in the book and the movie are good sound relationship ideas. People who are put off by the religious overtones, or offended, miss the bigger message. So, to each their own.

Having been married for over 25 years, then divorced, I can see a lot of value in the message.
