Child Trends recently released a new research brief titled Relationship Violence Among Young Adult Couples.  They found that “four in 10 young adult couples in the sample reported some type of relationship violence and that certain relationship characteristics were linked to higher or lower levels of violence. Cohabiting couples reported the highest levels of relationship violence (in contrast to married and dating couples), and relationship violence tended to be higher among couples with lower levels of education, couples with children in the household, and couples in which partners differ by race or ethnicity.”
