After seven years of marriage, it appears that April and Steve’s love has grown cold. Ever since April accepted Christ, their relationship hadn’t been the same. Propelled by a worry that Steve’s affections have drifted elsewhere, April makes a decision that could lead to real trouble and, even worse yet, end her marriage.

To satisfy her curiosity and uncover the truth, April creates a profile on the dating website Three months earlier, Steve had mentioned the site while contemplating aloud if he and April would still match – especially in the wake of their steadily diverging religious beliefs.
