Dealing with parents who always fight?

My parents do not have a healthy relationship. For as long as I could remember, they always have yelled at each other and talked down to each other. My mother was worse with this. She would basically talk crap behind my dad's back to me and my other siblings. I am getting sick of hearing about it. They are not happy and haven't been happy together for many years now but they won't divorce. I guess they are either too stubborn or too scared.

How can I deal with this? How can I get them to leave me out of their arguing?

Maybe have a little intervention with your siblings in the hope of maybe getting to go to couple therapy or something. Otherwise, if I was you, I would tell my mom that I don't want to hear about their issues with each other. 

Flat out tell them to leave you out of their problems, and to either get help, or get a divorce already. It sounds like these two are just destined to argue until the end of time, maybe letting them know to finally do it will help. I don't know.

You are going to need to tell your parents how you feel if you want them to leave you out. Once they understand that you do not want to hear about it hopefully they respect your wishes and leave you out of it.

I agree with the above posts, you need to tell them you don't want to hear it and don't want to be involved. I know a lot of couples who do this, both married and unmarried, young and old... Some people just suck at communication and get in relationships with other people who suck at communication and then drag everyone who will listen into their mess.
