For Your Love is an American sitcom that premiered on March 17, 1998 on NBC. It was canceled after six episodes, but was picked up by The WB Network. It ran there for four years before its 2002 cancellation.

Synopsis[edit]

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 series starred Holly Robinson Peete and James Lesure. It ran for four seasons, and the last episode aired on August 11, 2002.

In July 2006, TV One began airing the series in syndicated reruns.

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