Who does domestic violence/dating violence happen to?What are the laws against domestic violence/dating violence and can they help me? Domestic violence/dating violence is about one person getting and keeping power and control over another person in an intimate relationship.Any teen or young adult can experience violence, abuse or unhealthy behaviors in their dating relationships.A relationship may be serious or casual, monogamous or not, short-term or long-term.Anyone can be abusive and anyone can be the victim of abuse.It happens regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, race or economic background.
Teens and young adults experience the same types of abuse in relationships as adults. No matter where it’s learned, it’s not ok and it’s never justified.
It occurs in both opposite-sex and same-sex relationships.
A person's gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation does not determine whether s/he can be a victim of domestic violence or an abuser.
Dating violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors used to exert power and control over a dating partner.
Calling dating violence a pattern doesn’t mean the first instance of abuse is not dating violence.
