My husband and I keep arguing over silly little things, but it really gets to me. Then he tells me to forget it and not to carry on the argument which really hurts because in his way he is telling me to shut up which I find disrespectful. We have some sort of row every day over something so trivial and then it blows up and I end up having a lot of anger towards my husband. Does this happen to anyone else and have you found any ways around this?

What exactly are you arguing about??? I have been with my husband for 10 years and we have disagreed maybe 5 times but it never ended up in an argument. If I want something done -- I do it. If I want something done MY way -- I do it. He does the same thing. We don't argue about money because we sat down early and decided what we were doing to do. We don't argue about kids because we sat down early and sorted it out early. Poor communication starts most arguments. So fix your communication skills and help him fix his.

Thanks for your advice. We argue over silly things like I said like who is going on the internet. We both have a lot of insecurities and say sorry lots of times to each other. I get annoyed by him leaving the toilet unflushed or his shoes around the house. We are both messy people. We do argue over money sometimes but, mostly it is silly petty things. I also am getting over mental health problems and I still think this affects me somewhat.
