Javascript comparing dates

JimmyDeuce asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a calendar that I am making and I can't allow the user to go out past two years. when they clcik the"nextMonth" button I need to do the following.

date1 = today
date2 = today + 2 years

So when they get to the November 2013 thank can't proceed to December 2013.

I am having a tough time and I think that it's because the time on the dates are throwing things off. I need to compare just the month and year.

Any thoughts?
