We ended up doing it together, I had planned on doing it alone. We loved it. My husband, at the time, wasn't a christian. God definitely used it to start to change his heart. It was very cool. It isn't about changing your spouse though, it's about changing yourself. It definitely helps to go into it with that mindset.

It was great. We went onto doing the year one, but we liked the 40 day one better. We've talked about doing it again, just to "keep up" with making sure we stay strong as a couple. We haven't though.

It's a 40 day "dare" where you do a simple thing every day to show your spouse that you love and care about them. It's also religious based, however, its a very successful at helping you appreciate your spouse. I saw it on the movie called FireProof (which was an awesome movie) and when I watched the movie I noticed the couple was a lot like me and my husband. So I decided why not try it. I also have a family friend couple who did the dare and it fixed their marriage immensly because they began to appreciate/respect each other again, something they had lost years previously.

Both people have to be willing. And it's very religious so you'll need to be okay with that.

Well, I mean, both people don't have to do it. You can do it alone.



But yes, it is religious. My husband skipped that stuff at the time.
