3.0 out of 5 stars Doing love dare-religion?, November 2, 2010
By Crystle - See all my reviews
DH and I are on day 5 and it seems to be working out so far. DH and I are Agnostic. I knew going into this book that is was written with religious overtones but found the first couple of dares (with the religious context left out) to be fairly simple things DH and I easily take for granted. However as I peek forward the dares start to take an overwhelmingly religious tone. (Fair enough-it is a religiously toned book) I find some of the explanations to be sexist as "if husband could deal with wife's irrationality" "or if wife could contain herself during the football game" etc.
My question is-Is it possible to do these dares without the religious stuff? Will the sexism become overt? I guess I'm disappointed because it seems to be working but I know if it starts talking more about religion than marriage or what Christians believe marriage to be, I know it won't work for DH and I:( To each its own-but DH and I are firm non-believers. Anyone have any success without being religious?
