Heather,

I actually had to think about this for a bit. I don't think I have had a fight with my husband in a long time. We are so well matched that we agree on most all things. When we do have a disagreement we sit down and discuss it, but as to fighting all the time...no and imo I don't think that fighting all the time is a healthy relationship.

No, we don't. 

We are compatible, first of all. That eliminates about 98% of the problems.

When there are issues, we discuss the issues and attempt to resolve them; we don't enter into control/power games in order to "win".  We both respect that the other has a valid point of view to whatever the issue is and we do our best to compromise--or leave the problem til a compromise can be reached.
