Straus, Murray A.; Sweet, Stephen
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n2 p346-57 May 1992
Examined verbal/symbolic aggression between partners in 5,232 U.S. couples. Found that men and women engaged in about equal amounts of verbal/symbolic aggression against their partners. Probability of frequent verbal/symbolic aggression against partner tended to decrease with age and number of children in family and to increase with occurrence of alcohol abuse and drug use.
