Courtship Violence Experienced by Abused Wives: Similarities in Patterns of Abuse.
Roscoe, Bruce; Benaske, Nancy
Family Relations, v34 n3 p419-24 Jul 1985
Investigated relationship between courtship violence and later spouse abuse in 82 women clients at domestic violence shelters. Examination of histories with regard to physical violence during childhood, courtship, and marriage demonstrated remarkable similarity between courtship and marital violence. Relationship violence rather than courtship or spouse abuse as separate phenomena is suggested. (Author/NRB)
