I've been in the same monogamous relationship since I was 16 years old--close to 14 years now! 10 of those years we've been married. Marriage is a difficult relationship to keep up over the years, especially when you begin your relationship so young--both of you do a lot of growing over the years, some of it growing apart. So marriage is a thing to be maintained over the years, worked on to keep it alive.
Today I begin the first day of The Love Dare. The Love Dare is a book, based upon the movie Fireproof, starring Kirk Cameron.
From the back cover:
"Unconditional Love is eagerly promised at weddings, but rarely practiced in real life. As a result, romantic hopes are often replaced with disappointment in the home. But it doesn't have to be that way.
The Love Dare is a 40-day challenge for husbands and wives to understand and practice unconditional love. Whether your marriage is hanging on a thread or healthy and strong., the love Love Dare, is a journey you need take. It's time to learn the keys to finding true intimacy and developing a dynamic marriage. Take the dare!"
To assist in the challenge there is an accompanying website www.40DayLoveDare.com where you can register your own personal Love Dare. It offers you a place to keep a journal, a message board, a blog, and resources.
You can also visit www.LoveDareBook.com which also has a wealth of resources and information about the book, the authors, the movie, and the dare.
