Book Description

Refreshingly engaging and unabashedly honest, Fight With Me is one couple’s account of their attempts to start their marriage well. In this fun, approachable and practical book, Tim and Olive draw from their real-life stories to offer an inside look at the triumphs and failures they encountered as they learned to be husband and wife. Written with both of their perspectives, this little gem is not a “how-to” guide but rather a “how-we” companion for anyone who longs for deeper relationships.

With over 5000 copies downloaded since it's release, Fight With Me has been an Amazon Top 100 Book and the Top Ranking book in the Marriage category.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it November 26, 2012
By bern
Format:Kindle Edition
I always love reading books written by someone who is telling his / her experience rather than some sort of theories. And this is exactly the book! Thanks to Tim and Olive (who are still newly-wed comparing to many other authors who have written books of marriage) sharing their experience so "nakedly" for their encouragement. This is a book recommended to all who are getting married, just got married and been married for a while, e.g. over 10, 20, 30 .... years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and fresh November 27, 2012
By Peter
Format:Kindle Edition
I found this to be a very practical and fun read. I love that it starts off with not being a 'how to' but a 'how we' book. The real-life stories and reflections were great additions that many people can relate with.

It helped me reflect on what my personality type is and what gets me going, especially when it comes to areas of communication. There are a number of principles in there that I found were fresh ideas that I would like to apply in my own life.

This is definitely a resource I give to my friends (married, dating, or single!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and easy to read! November 26, 2012
By Simon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From following their blog ([...]), I could tell this book was something I wanted to read - I ended up reading it all in one sitting! It's easy to read, honest, and practical. Tim and Olive's writing has challenged my roommate (aka husband) and I to grow in our marriage!

3.0 out of 5 stars It Didn't Work For Me May 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I understand the premise - that you should work with your partner to see things from their perspective and not shy away from difficult conversations. But to me it was too contrived. For example, having planning days for the marriage just turned me off. Some of the outcomes were a bit too pat. This couple hasn't really been together for long, and I would really like to see how things pan out in the long term. At times I also felt that there was too much neediness. For example, why did Tim have to forego a city tour with his parents to be with his Olive in the hotel room? Surely she could have stayed there herself? It really didn't do it for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Fighting December 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is refreshing. It's essential for married couples in any season of their marriage, be it their first or 50th! The authors, Tim and Olive Chan are transparent and genuine and their stories are heartfelt and encouraging. They touch on issues that are crucial for building a successful marriage: from the importance of learning how to fight to setting aside time/days to dream together. They also share how their own personal struggles and illnesses (burnout and depression) have affected their marriage. Highly recommended for any married couple!

Fight With Me is a great book for those pursuing a Christian marriage. As a single woman, this was a great book that prepared me about the realities of marriage and the ways marriage is used to ultimately glorify God and in pursuing holiness. I love how Tim and Olive used their story to give readers practical suggestions in facing the difficulties and challenges in marriage. I also really like how they emphasize that taking the time to communicate each other's needs and wants is so important in creating a healthy marriage. I definitely recommend this book to everyone, either single or married!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Perspective on Communication December 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unique book about marriage! As someone who is looking forward to being married, I enjoyed reading this short book which details some interesting ways the authors viewed communication. While there are definitely Christian messages in this book, as an atheist I still found the book useful and did not think the religious aspect of the book was overpowering (in some books, it really is!). I felt any newlyweds or soon to be married couple could benefit from reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Selah- Pause, ponder & think! January 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok, I've read all the reviews before mine & suffice to say that though this couple are young, they've actually been able to hit notes no one else has for me. Very exciting + easy read, fresh (as one review states) and fair. Marriage is between 2 people, once anyone else gets in the way ( parents, kids, siblings) it becomes something else- a mirage.
