Date::Manip is particularly good at this. Look at the DateCalc() method.

Alternatively, since you're getting the values from a database, see if you can get it to return the values in the format yyyy-mm-dd; then a simple string comparison will do. Or - heck - get it in nnnnnnnnn format, a number representing seconds since the epoch. Then a simple numeric comparison will do!
