Problem With "if" Statement Flow Asp.net

I have stored subscription expiration dates in a field inside my db. The dates are either 31 days after the date purchased or 1 day after the date purchased. When going to use these dates I am uncertain how to create an "if" statement that makes sure the user cannot login after his expiration date. Below I have only a piece of it that could be user for users who have an expiration date of tomorrow. Can someone add on to this to not let users login if they are past their 31 day subscription? Also is this "if" suppose to go into the Login_click event to work corectly or am I putting it in the wrong place?
//For case user has only 1 day subscription
  if (SubExpirationDate.Date != DateTime.Now.Date)
        {
            Response.Write("Expired");
        }

Are you storing their expiration date in the database or just the number 31 / 1?
And yes the if can go in the login click even which you will redirect in case its expired.

your logic is off.
it should be:
if (SubExpirationDate.Date > DateTime.Now.Date)
        {
//would do Repsonse.Redirect(Aspired.aspx.)
           Response.Write("Expired");
        }
else
Response.Redirect("~/members/home.aspx")

or something to that effect.

Ok, how can I use the login control in asp.net to redirect to a PurchasedPage if the user has logged in successfully and fullfilled the expirationdate? Also I am not sure how/where to set Failure.Text messages stating to the user either his subscription has expired or he has an invalid password. Here is what I have so far Can someone help me fix this thing to work as stated?

The could maybe wrong and definatly not complete(I dont know where to put the invalid password fail text, also am not sure I am using the right event)

One other thing I have put this in my web config...forgot what it was for dunno if it effects this code or not....
<forms name="BMHLogin" loginUrl="Login.aspx" path="/" protection="All" timeout="60" defaultUrl="Purchased.aspx">
</forms>
protected void LoginButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
 
        DataTable dt = BMHAccess.GetUserInfo(login2.UserName);
        if (dt.Rows.Count > 0)
        {
          DateTime exDate=DateTime.Parse(dt.Rows[0]["SubExpirationDate"].ToString());
            if (exDate > DateTime.Now.Date)
        {
          //would do Repsonse.Redirect(Aspired.aspx.)
            Response.Redirect("PurchasedPage.aspx");
           
        }
 
 
            
        }
        else
        {
            login2.FailureText = "Expired";
        
        }
}

You should use OnAuthenticate event of Login control and not LoginButton OnClick.

protected void login2_Authenticate(object sender, AuthenticateEventArgs e)
    {
if(Membership.ValidateUser(login2.UserName,login2.Password))
{ //user is authenticated
  DataTable dt = BMHAccess.GetUserInfo(login2.UserName);
        if (dt.Rows.Count > 0)
        {
          DateTime exDate=DateTime.Parse(dt.Rows[0]["SubExpirationDate"].ToString());
            if (exDate.Date > DateTime.Now.Date)
        {      //valid subscription
                e.Authenticated = true;
                 Response.Redirect("PurchasedPage.aspx");          
        }
     else
        {   //Subscription Expired
            login2.FailureText = "Subscription Expired";
            Response.Redirect("Subscribe.aspx");
        }
}
//this else is not mandatory it can be removed
else
{   //Invalid username/password
    e.Authenticated = false;
}
}
