Conflict is common to all marriages.  What MOST marriages don't have is a blueprint for resolving conflict when it occurs.  Tim and Joy not only share with you THE most effective blueprint, but they will give you the practical tools and coaching needed in marriages today.  Buy and apply this book!  It'll revolutionize your relationship.

Format: Paperback
Did I tell you my husband was weird and I am the normal one in the relationship? I know this to be true. It is evident in almost every discussion, or uh!, argument disagreement we sometimes have.

There are conflicts in all aspects of life. We face them daily at work, at the grocery store, in traffic, and with the people who reside with us most closely within the confines of our homes. Disagreements with your spouse can seem to be the most unsettling. We wonder how this individual we are married to can think such things that vary so much from our view?!? What should or could be a simple disagreement can at times became what seems more like the initiation of a nuclear war.
There are times I just know he is wrong and I am right. There needs to be no further discussion, because I know! He must be crazy to think anything less...right? Well, right?? This is why I am sure One of Us Must Be Crazy... and I'm Pretty Sure It's You (him, not me!).

One of Us Must Be Crazy... and I'm Pretty Sure It's You, written by Tim and Joy Downs, is a companion book from the original Fight Fair! In the Fight Fair! Book, the authors teach a couple how to make peace in moments of discord without losing the marriage in the win. All marriages are made differently and it is the differences that merge and meld a couple into a unified entity. Fight Fair! did focus on how a couple could remaining love and keep a marriage intact, by fair fighting or fair disagreements. One of Us Must Be Crazy... and I'm Pretty Sure It's You goes a step beyond fighting fairly to focus on how couples may understand their differences and use them to see the differences as values and not fighting points. The authors note that this latest book release is about "making sense of the differences that divide us.

My fiancée and I just completed premarital counseling by working together through this book. Tim and Joy Downs wrote the book as if they were addressing married couples, but it was still easy to follow along and actually served as a catalyst for a lot of potential issues we had never discussed up to that point. I really admired how the Downs were able to get to the root of a lot of commonplace disagreements or sticking points in relationships through one of their seven "differences that divide." It helped us to identify personal issues from our past and present that cause us to respond to disagreements in the ways that we do.

The only thing that bothered me about the book was the writing style. I felt like the Downs tried a little too hard to be humorous and work "one-liners" into their dialogues of couples having disagreements. As the book progressed, the dialogues took on a noticeably hostile tone, which the Downs never addressed as being an inappropriate way to fight. Perhaps they assumed that most couples know better than to personally attack one another, but that's a pretty risky assumption to make when writing a book of this nature.
