    As the quarrel between Peter and his girlfriend

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    As the quarrel between Peter and his girlfriend progressed, they threw each other's belongings onto the street.

    I'd use "intensified" rather than "progressed". I'd use "into" rather than "onto".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
