My younger sister (15) has been in this relationship with her boyfriend (16) for almost a good two years.
Seems like they would be happy but then again when they are constantly addicted to eachother and always fighting and screaming I think differently.
I hear them fight at LEAST two to three times a day EVERY DAY and the arguments are always half an hour or longer.
I don't want them to leave each other because they really are happy when they don't fight.
I don't know what to do, this is something that I live with everyday, the infuriated sister and I feel like I can't do anything about it and it's effecting my well being and my epileptic Dad's too. Her stress can cause him seizures which can end his life.
How do I handle this?!

You could tell her to "take it outside" not for your sake, but for your Father's. If she doesn't heed that, then.. Well, that's just cold.

Just my advice.

Your sister and her boyfriend sound co-dependent.  That can't end well.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Who was it that said that adolescent relationships are SO overrated?
