Quoting conweis:

 I use intimidation when fighting. I kinda overload him with facts. statistics, logic and in the end persuasion. I am the alpha in our relationship. I am either right or we agree to disagree.

We are doing a lot better now about talking to each other about what is bothering us.

We do fight.  But we make sure that we listen to each other and try to see where the other person is coming from.  I think we fight fair.

No. Lately we don't. We are working through some problems and relearning how to disagree.

I go to bed angry, but I wish I would because I just end up with a bad nights sleep. All that anger from the fight we didn't have just eats at me. So I feel we can 'fight fair' if we sit down the first chance we get and talk about it.
