We screw like rabbits and rarely wear pants in front of the kids, but we never fight.
If you let them "see how you get over it" they will have far more issues than if they see you fight.
I agree. It's always best to have your DSFs in front of somebody else's kids.

re: good don't come home, asshole!
Agree with Bob on this. If you can avoid it great but as long as it is resolved and you show your kids that it is the most important thing. If it gets out of hand you should probably apologize to your spouse in front of your kids and your kids as well. People make mistakes.
Adults can have confrontations and disagree as long as they establish the relationship at the end of it and it is healthy.
In the divorce culture we have now I think people are afraid to argue/ disagree and everyone is insecure (both parents and kids). People tip toe around stuff and never deal with it which isn't healthy Either. If you don't deal with issues right away sometimes they get buried and are never dealt with.
I think it really depends on how right I think I am
I disagree. The most important thing is winning. When you're right you need to win the argument and demoralize your opponent. Otherwise you just encourage a "participation ribbon" society. Children should not be taught to acknowledge the points of a person that is in the wrong. Win, win, win!!!!
Never show weakness or a deferential posture towards females while in the presence of your children. Especially the male children.
In front of my what now?
I knew that was on its way.
The dog is barking at her, too.
Since the wife and I are both socialized into the norms of authentic scientific discourse, we exclusively use Toulmin's argumentation framework when fighting, with particular focus on the Claim, Data and Warrants components. In doing so we socialize our children into the norms of discourse practices that involve assessing alternatives, weighing evidence, interpreting texts, evaluating the potential viability of claims, and eventual paradigm change - thereby avoiding unmitigated rhetoric of conclusions in which current and temporary constructions of knowledge are conveyed as empirical, literal and irrevocable truths. We also swear a lot .
You're hate for the Irish seems far less rational.
Although it should be made clear this is not about a male-female dynamic. It is about winning and whoever can bring the resources necessary to win.
Just don't get me started on the Jews.

A Spartan Today, A SPARTAN FOREVER. Through thick and thin, low and high water I strive to be the best Spartan ever.
i never argued in front of my kid but i did choke that bitch out.

Since I don't have kids, I look for young families out walking in the neighborhood and try to start a fight between the parents.
You have to warp the children at an early age, otherwise, their therapy later in life might actually help.

and leave a big scrape. I piss all over the place.
We don't argue because I'm never right. Just ask her.
My wife and I got into a knife fight 'Beat It' style in front of the kids. Doesn't seem to have caused any permanent trauma aside from the time my son stabbed his teacher in the eye with a water color brush in preschool.

But he won!
we did, and too often. This is the one thing I wish had been different when my daughter was growing up. If I could do anything different, it would be to have swallowed my pride and simply always let her be right in front of our daughter during her formative years.... Fortunately, she has grown up to be a well-adjusted young adult. But I still have regrets for allowing the heat of the moment to get to me at times when she was young.

I don't ever remember arguing with the wife at any time the past 30 years, let alone in front of the kids. Of course, I don't remember a lot of things. But when it's all said and done, my lack of any memory, excluding MSU games over the years, has served me well.
Having a really bad memory is the secret to a good marriage...... Or it may mean I drink too much.
