Is it considered emotional child abuse if the parents don't directly abuse a child but constantly fight at home?

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

Abuse and neglect can take many forms. Watching recurrent, intense fighting between the two most important people in a child's life can be highly stressful, especially because young children tend to assume they are the cause of the problem.

In brief: 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.
