In brief: Yes no maybe arg
If one wants something to work that is much invested in, it can be frustrating when it is not working well.
Anger is a feeling that notifies us that we are being hurt, threatened, or our boundaries are being eroded. Now it is what one does with the anger at this point. If it energizes and emphasizes in a manner that is effective, that is good. Sometimes it punctuates and gets the others attention.

Frequent Anger and Arguing could be a sign of UNRESOLVED, UNDERLYING patterns. A good counselor can help discover and resolve. Forgiveness is a powerful Practice

In brief: NO
Arguing and anger is not healthy; you should see a counselor to learn healthy communication skills and work out the differences you have.

In brief: Depends
Conflict is inevitable and essential.
It can be destructive, but if handled well, it can defuse situations that might cause bigger problems later on. Studies have found that the more unexpressed irritants partners have, the less satisfied they tend to be. This does not mean that every nuisance should be aired. IIt does mean, however, that it is important to recognize real problems and address them

Constructively handling conflict involves avoiding blame, mastering your own anger, being flexible, and not withdrawing when your partner raises a concern. Avoid negativity, and step back if you and your partner start hurling stronger insults toward one another. Calm down and return to the discussion with an apology. Repeat daily. This takes practice! If you can't do it on your own, get help. Best
