Overview

A candid and clever portrait of a young woman's first year of married life

Week 1: "You want this house? With the pink-and-purple striped wallpaper?"

Week 9: "But you said you'd do it today..."

Week 17: "You couldn't have called?"

Newlyweds Jennifer and Matt really love each other. They never lived together before they were married-and so both were shocked to learn all the little things that go with living with one's spouse. Who knew that in his family, Saturdays were for tackling chores, while in her family Saturdays were for sleeping late? Now, two nice people from nice families are finding out that they do everything differently-and suddenly, they're in the ring with gloves on!

Week by week, the fights take both of them by surprise-they never meant to be the kind of couple that acts this way. Simultaneously, though, Jennifer and Matt are building something strong, knocking down old walls of habit and finding the strong foundation of a love that will see them through...in a delightful memoir of a knock-down, drag-out first year of marriage.

    what marriage is really like

    This book was given to me at my bridal shower and I expected a humorous read. I got that ¿ but much more, too. The jacket copy doesn¿t accurately reflect the depth of this book. Yes, it¿s funny, but it¿s also quite touching ¿ like your inside Patterson¿s head, there with her as she struggles with her marital insecurities, like her jealousies, her inability to let go of events that occurred in their past, and her husband¿s frequent travels. But what I liked best about it was the empathy it provided. My husband and I often struggle with many of the issues she addresses. Nice to know we¿re not alone!

    great bridal shower gift

    I received this book as a bridal shower gift and loved it! I couldn't wait to read it. The theme of our bridal shower was 52 fights and everybody wrote their fight down on an index card and read it out loud. It was hilarious, and the book was even better. At first, I sided with the author but later on I started to see her husband's point of view.
