Not really normal.But married people do have arguments, sometimes. If the arguments bothers you very much, perhaps, you can move to other dwellings. It can get to be irritating. Sorry, don't know how old you are. But if you are an adult it may be time to move out on your own. Peace

No, it is not "normal". But, not everyone is the same as another, there are variations in normal. If it bothers you, do not try outwardly to change how your parents behave. Pray. Then, be as honest as you can with them individually about how their arguing makes you feel, then mention it when they are together. Finally, the toughest job, parent them a little; when they are doing good, tell them how happy it makes you feel.

No, it's not normal but are you sure they are really arguing? Some couples communicate by voiceing opinions back and forth, but they will have respect. As long as your parent's are respecting each other. Talk to them about it.

I think arguing is normal in families. Now if it is abusive in some way that is not right! Have you tried to discuss how you are feeling about this with them?

Sammy...Sometimes what you might be seeing as arguing is just discussing. Parents have to discuss things like finances. They won't always agree on everything just because they are your parents.

In this day and age, many parents are divorcing and not getting along. Many do argue and even physically fight. It is very sad for the children to have to watch and experience all of the feelings that the parents are putting them through. Maybe you can find an adult to talk to about this. perhaps someone at church if you go to one or a teacher or counselor at school. It does help to talk about it. I am sorry for you if this is what you are going through and will pray for you.

Have you talked to them about it? They may not be aware they are arguing because in their minds they are just having some good discusion. We were like that until our kids commented to us that we always argue. That got us thinking about it and we have quit it and live much more at peace.

The Bible is clear how to relate in love >

"Do all things without complaining and disputing," (Philippians 2:14)

"submitting to one another in the fear of God." (Ephesians 5:21)

Even if your parents do not relate like this, God wants YOU to learn how to relate like this. And in a close involvement, like marriage, you might find out you're not so strong, after all, for this.

In the Gospel of Matthew, the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught that being angry with your Brother was the moral equivalent of murdering him. Why so much verbal abuse in today's homes? The Devil really can make them do it!

No it isn't normal for a couple to argue alot. A problem lies somewhere in their marriage. It is okay if a couple argue at times. Sometimes couples need to argue to get feelings out but if they argue all the time, they need counsling.

No one is perfect parents do tend to argue, It's not always a good idea to argue regardless of whether it's in front of children or not. But It happens, that's life! Maybe you should say quietly to each parent, you know mum/dad it hurt me when you both argue do you think this is a good example of loving each other, how am I going to love/my husband without arguing, if all I hear is you both being a bad example? It just may shame them into doing a little better!

Spouses arent supposed to be arguing a lot, if they are Christian and mature. This doesn't mean that they don't at times disagree on some issues. Its normal to disagree. We are different, even as we are one in Christ. But it is wrong for spouses to argue often over small issues - it corrupts the atmosphere of intimacy between them and spoils peace in the home. Mature Christian couples gently and kindly respond to irritation. They dont let small conflicts fester into big ones.
