The Review Fireproof is an all-around excellent movie to watch especially for those individuals who may be dealing with some difficulties in their marriage where they feel they may be at a crossroads. The movie Fireproof is about a married couple Caleb and Catherine who have seemed to lost connection with one another and are dealing with underlying issues in their marriage. Caleb and Catherine come to a crossroads in their marriage where they can either give up or try and save their marriage. Caleb’s father ask him to give the marriage 40 days and take a 40 day marriage challenge he has written out for him in order to try and save his marriage. Half way through the challenge Caleb is getting ready to give up until his father reaches out to him and points out one big error he is making and that is not giving him self and his marriage over to God. Once Caleb realizes he has to have God in his marriage and he has to learn how to truly love then he puts a really effort into to winning the heart of his wife back. The movie points out so many things that can go wrong in a marriage and how they can make one’s spouse hurt and not want to be around anymore. The movie shows how hurt Catherine is when she feels neglected by her husband and how Caleb feels he doesn’t get respect from his wife.
Therapeutic Implications In several scenes in Fireproof you see Caleb making a genuine try to save his marriage and Catherine keeps ignoring his repair attempts.
