 DH and I will be together for 9 years in May, married 3 of them. We don't fight over the stupid stuff. If we do argue, we go our separate ways, calm down, and talk about it rationally

Oh I could have kicked his ass plenty of times in the first few years but he also is a little scared of me cause I will be very to the point if he doesn't get my point so things got better once he realized that. example... I tried to tell him he was drinking to much but he didn't slow down so after a few weeks and nothing changing he came home to $400 in alcohol bottles empty in the sink... point was taken. I was able to stock the bar again and it lasted forever after that. He found out that I hated fighting so instead of fighting and getting no where I would go straight for the problem and take care of it. The truck setting in the driveway broke down fixed it and he never drove it again cause I took it too. So he now talks to me and trys to figure everything out without fighting cause he know I will just get rid of the problem.

 Oh girl, I know for dh and me, it went WAY beyond the 1st and 2nd year.  We were both too stubborn to learn anything that quickly.  I do remember feeling that "conflict resolution" was a BIGGIE for us and I resorted to the fact that it would probably always be a problem.  Although we have had counseling (short term) for some other issues, that particular problem got pushed to the back burner, so to speak, to work on other areas of our marriage.  For us, arguing and fighting became less & less as we got older (we're both in our late 40's).  The older you get, fighting over small things just don't seem all that important anymore.  We've become more relaxed and complacent as we've grown together and don't fear so many things.  It's a nice place to be.  Best wishes!
