Quoting Devious333:

Some people struggle with grammar/spelling the same way I struggle with math.

 I struggle with math! I have some kind of block or something(it seems).

Yup.

Your is possessive, and you're is a contraction (you are).

The easiest way to decide which is appropriate is by inserting it in a sentence.

For example:
"You are going to the store" - can use "you're"

Yes I do. And I absolutely don't think it takes too much time to get it right.

Your- "Your husband is an asshole"

You're- "You're an asshole"

I do. I just don't think about or care enough most the time. Especially on here and stuff.

Yes.

You're a dumbass.

Your dumb ass is the problem in this situation.

The first is the contraction for you are.

The second is possessive.
