We never fight. It used to be a problem actually because my husband never gave any input. Now we are a much more balanced family but we still never ever fight. There is nothing to fight about.

You didnt have an option for me. We are so much alike in thinking we have only argued a couple times in the 18 yrs we have been together. I would say we dont fight.

Our "fighting" is mostly calm discussions.  We may get a little passionate at time but we always talk through.

We do.
But honestly going to bed angry isn't a big deal.
Some things don't get resolved before bed and we sleep on it and he usually sees he was wrong. Lol.

We fight but we haven't yelled at each other, or slammed a door in years. DH is more likely to stew on something, but I like to air everything out. Also, over the years, we've learned to not sweat little stuff causing us to fight less overall.

Yes and no. We can argue calmly, but sometimes it can get heated...

We rarely fight, but when we do, we mostly fight fair. We've gone to bed angry one single time, because we were both exhausted, and just done, and we yell sometimes, but that's even rarer than fights in general.

 Fair fights in this house only.   Teaching our son the same, when he gets upset over something we tell him to go to his room until he is calm and then we talk things out.  My mother was a screamer during an argument and I learned all it does is cause the other person to resent you and tune you out.  Not very productive at getting a resoltion to a conflict.   Also I do not agree with calling someone you love names (joking is okay; but never in anger and never to hurt).   Words cut worse than a knife, and no matter how many times you say I am sorry that scar will always be there.

Yes and no

There is a line we don't cross. We don't call names but in the heat of the moment voices do get raised.

We usually go to our corners till we can cool down and come back in a better state of mind.
We never go to bed angry we will stay up and work it out even if it ends in an agree to disagree.
