When couples used negative forms of communication during arguments (i.e., “fought dirty”), it amplified the risk of violence.
This may be due to the accumulation of violent relationship experiences.
An interesting result emerged when the data were restricted to only adult reports of relationship violence; those with adulthood-onset of relationship abuse on average reported more concentrated abuse within a shorter timeframe.
Based on this longitudinal sample, we have a better understanding of the trajectories and consequences of relationship abuse during adolescence through the transition into young adulthood.
