  • If the arguments are over minor issues, you should both learn to pick your battles. Over 20 years of marriage I have learnt to just let some things go because it’s just not worth the argument and the bitter feelings afterwards.

  • My husband and i have been together for 8 years we married last weekend and we bicker about alot of things, sometimes we get a bit heated, but most of the time its over silly things, after 2 years of being together he had a below knee amputation due to a work accident so we lived at each others feet while he recovered, and we couldnt stand esch other, now hes back working up to 2/3 days a week we know that if he was to be out of work id have to go do something, so i agree with people saying both go out and find a hobby seperately, make plans to see friends when your doing nothing, i hope things work out for you, 50 years is a massive achievement, i hope that you both work together to make it even longer❤❤

  • Oh it would be awful after so many years together to separate now. Maybe try not so much time together, get out, find interests that take you away from the home

  • its only because you two know each other too well. Both need to give space to each other – maybe this will help! Good luck

  • That is a long time . What do you bicker about , is it something worth arguing about and what changes can be made so you each can do things either together or separately . I would seek relationship counselling if it is constant and causing distress especially if you think communication has gone downhill .

  • Anyone in this situation should seek couples counselling.

  • If u can’t stop bickering ,mabe ,but do a list & see the pros & cons .Im in long term relationship ,we bicker so I send him fishing or go visit mates .

  • I hate to say this, but you two are the only people who can answer that question… Why not try a holiday apart, (not a separation) but a week away were you can both get some distance, you may be surprised at how much you miss each other. 50 years of your life is a lot to throw away for bickering….
