To Love and To Cherish


Jay and Aliyah have been married for five years and each has a child from a previous marriage. When Aliyah’s husband shows up and demands custody of their son she tries to secretly work it out instead of talking to Jay about the situation. To make matters more complicated, Jay allows his sassy teenage daughter to move in without consulting Aliyah and the two women immediately bump heads. With constant misunderstandings and both disregarding the other’s feelings, these two are going to need to learn the laws of communication and respect if they want to make their marriage work.

Dove Review

This movie clearly shows what good things can happen when communication is used. Likewise, it shows how far things can go astray when it is not used. Jay and Aliyah have five years behind them in marriage and each one has a child from a previous marriage, Zoe is Jay’s daughter and Wesley is Aliyah’s son. The strain is soon there when Zoe comes to live with Jay and Aliyah and Wesley’s father comes back into his life.

This movie nicely shows that problems can be worked through. The film contains humor too. We are pleased to award this movie our Dove Seal for ages twelve plus. This is the one to see if you like some laughs mixed in with the drama.
