Depends: Again, the personality of the child, and the severity of the arguments, all will play a role.

Bad for everyone.: When a bad situation rises to the level of abuse can be a tricky decision; but, whether it is formal abuse or not, constant fighting between parents, verbal or physical, is just plain bad for everyone. If this happening with you, seek help now.
