In a marriage or committed relationship ?
I use the term normal loosely and fighting includes arguing, disagreements ect.

i think it really depends on the couple. we fight a lot. but we are committed to each other, so we always get through it.

I think it depends. 
We don't fight often (as in about oncee a year) but when we do, it's a good one.... lol
We do disagree and discuss a bit, but very rarely does it result in a fight.

 I guess if you think it's too much...then it's too much, and should look for ways to stop a disagreement escallating into a fight. I think this takes a little time. I think it's best when you can learn to figure out ways of disagreeing without getting into personal attacks. Sticking to the issue at hand and not bringing up past griviances. If there always seem to be disagreement and arguing, maybe there are unresolved issues that need to be worked on with a counselor.

That's great :) I think its about how you come back from it. Some couples just naturally argue a lot.

We have disagreements but we always discuss it and it gets resolved. In all the years that we have been married we have had only one really huge fight and one smaller fight.

Depends on the couple. We used to fight a lot when we first started out. But now not so much we get mostly snippy with each other
