How do I cope with constant verbal fighting and when if does the fighting stop after having a baby-Whom is now a toddler. Should we part or continue to argue and cause each other unhappiness or will life get better? What are others experiencing and how do you cope?

There are a lot of issues that need to be settled when raising children to avoid petty arguements. Ask him to write down things he wants to discuss or that are bugging him and you do the same. Sit down with a glass of wine and go through them one by one giving each other time to talk and listen. If that does not work then you can go for counciling and see what happends. If you love this man and he loves you back then things will settle.

Only you know what you are arguing about. Most of the time it is about money worries or sleep deprivation. Just try talking to each other without a fight. If you can see no future together then for the sake of the child move out. A young child can sence an unhappy parent.

Children dont cause bad relationships or fighting. If a child is the "cause" of problems in a relationship, then the relationship was rocky long before a child came into the picture. Only you can choose to leave a relationship, but I can say constant fighting is hurting your child.

It's a fact that a baby will NOT help a relationship that isn't very stable beforehand. As Little Miss said, get some counceling first to see if things can be sorted out but it's not good for the children to grow up in a house with a lot of fighting.

Counseling would be my first suggestion. We cannot tell you to stay or not, we do not know your or your relationship. Fighting in front of the kids is never ok. Staying in a relationship that you are miserable in, is also not healthy for you, your partner, or the kids. Good luck.
