Resolving arguments and solving the problem without letting it escalate is quite a skill and one you do really need to master for the sake of your relationship.
Relate's Mo Kurimbokus says: 'Don't start throwing abuse around, stick to the issue in hand and don't argue over trivia. Give each other time and space to put their argument forward. Don't interrupt. Listen when you partner speaks, Accept your mistakes and say sorry. Give each other the benefit of the doubt. Work towards a compromise and accept and celebrate difference.'
