Stress shouldn't: Fighting can if u have been physically hit or abused ( hopefully not), but if u still are fighting u should both go for counseling before it gets worse.

Can stress cause a miscarriage?

Probably not: It is common to assume that mental stress can cause a miscarriage, but there is no evidence to support that. Women who do miscarry are inherently stressed, but that does not cause the miscarriage.
