Re: "The Love Dare" anyone else done it/doing it?
Someone gave me that book a few years ago and I gave it to Goodwill. Hate to sound mean, but if my husband isn't going to treat me with respect I'm not going out of my way to "dare" myself to love him even more. I already show love (don't love him romantically at all but as a person I've known for a long time and the father of my children) by working every day, paying all his bills, keeping a roof over his head and his kids taken care of, so it's time he started "daring" himself to love me more.
I can see where the Love Dare would work for couples who already have a decent marriage but need to improve things or for people who are already respected by their spouses but just want to add that extra little something to their marriage. But, I think that catering to someone who already gets away with too much will just give them license to continue their bad behavior. "Give them an inch and they'll take a mile." They need to be told they're doing wrong and held accountable for it - doing a "love dare" with these people would be like rewarding them for the wrong behavior.
