According to the National Survey on Teen Relationships and Intimate Violence, more than 60 percent of teens said they had experienced some kind of abuse — physical, sexual and/or emotional — by someone they were dating or previously were in a relationship with."We have to recognize how prevalent teen dating violence is," stresses Bair-Merritt.
"It can have incredibly substantial consequences on health and well-being, including mortality."Young survivors of intimate partner violence are at a higher risk of being in abusive relationships in the future, Raj says."This is how they're learning to form relationships," she says.
Previous research shows that jealousy is a common issue in teen relationships, Capaldi says.
In one study, she and her colleagues brought in 17- to 18-year-olds to discuss relationship conflicts they were facing.
The most frequent issue raised by the teens was jealousy of their partners, she says."This was equally by girls and boys," she says.
"The most dangerous situation is when you have a history of poor [emotional] control, hostility, and then they're placed in a high-risk situation, like becoming jealous."And breakups, she adds, are a particularly volatile and dangerous time in abusive relationships.
Teen romance gone wrong can be dangerous for girls.
"We found breakups are for dangerous periods for more likelihood of injury," Capaldi says.
