We disagree, rather than fight. I constitute fighting as full blown yelling/screaming/slam ming stuff around/throwing things or getting physical. Firstly, if my husband so much as raised a hand to me, he'd be packin' his shit and I'd be filing. I don't play that game and he knows it. Same with me, I wouldn't expect him to stay around if I got abusive.
As for how often: I would say that theres a few times a week that we usually get into it, disagreeing or getting a bit loud. Usually it lasts for a few minutes and I will say "Ok, ya know what? We need to cool off, you go do something I'll go do something" and we walk away from the situation. Few minutes later we'll come back and discuss whatever it is. Nothing gets resolved when you both are in a heated moment, so we both have to cool our heads before we can be rational. After that, we usually agree or agree to disagree and move on from it.
