In situations of dating violence, one partner tries to exert power and control over the other partner through physical abuse or sexual assault.

Emotional abuse is commonly present alongside the physical abuse or sexual abuse that takes place.

finds Approximately two-thirds of Americans say it is hard to determine whether someone has been a victim of domestic abuse (64%) and want more information about what to do when confronted with domestic violence (65%).

Dating violence is violence that occurs within a dating relationship rather than, say, marriage; and dating violence is as much a problem for teenagers as it is for adults.

According to The Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence, young men and women may have certain beliefs that lead to higher incidence of dating violence.
