SynopsisEdit

For Your Love focused on three couples who try to counsel each other on how to deal with the opposite sex. At the start of the series, Sheri & Dean were the relationship "veterans", having been together for 15 years, married for the last four. Malena (Sheri's best friend) & Mel were newlyweds, moving next door to Sheri & Dean in the pilot. Bobbi & Reggie (Mel's younger brother) were dating, two "commitment-phobes" who were more devoted to each other than either would readily admit.

Early in their relationship, Bobbi and Reggie adopted a mutt together. Bobbi chose to name him "Chi-Chi". Reggie insisted that the name was too feminine for a male dog, and instead called him "Thor". They were both too stubborn to give in, and consequently the dog was referred to by both names throughout the series (Others called the dog "Chi-Chi/Thor" or "Thor/Chi-Chi").

The theme song was performed by Chaka Khan and Michael McDonald.
