I don't think the 8 mo old knows what is going on. But can feel the tension. They pick up on that stuff a lot.

Babies can feel stress and tension. the more you fight the more irritable and cranky the baby gets. actually babies pick up all emotions and tend to mirror them. So although she may not understand whats going on and why your fighting she WILL know that something is going on and pick up the negative energy.

So another part of my question would be what would you do... stay or leave?

Depends on what you're fighting about.. Stupid little things. Everything. Big life decisions. Does the fighting get out of control? Why happens after you fight? Do you apologize? Or ignore each other. What is going on..?

The fighting is mainly around his drinking .....we have no money to have a date night once a month date but he has the money to buy beer or go to a bar . He's kicked us out cuz he says he deserve it and doesn't think i work as hard at my job cuz i don't make as much money . He's never hit me and we never say sorry cuz he feels like he is right and i feel like i am right .

That doesn't sound like a good situation to be in.  Seems to be more toxic and tension filled than anything.  The longer you stay in a relationship like that, the older your baby gets and the more she will understand.
