Dating violence in asia detroit dating ideas
Without parental supervision, South Asian teens in violent relationships are less likely to know how to protect themselves and get out of the relationship.
According to a study conducted by the Korean Institute of Criminology, 1,593 out of 2,000 South Korean men, or 79.7 per cent, said they had abused a girlfriend during the dating period.
In terms of psychological or emotional abuse, 23.1 per cent said they had slammed a door or stamped on the ground in anger when they were with their girlfriends.
Among those who were physically violent with their partners, nearly 25 per cent said they had touched a partner's breasts, buttocks or genitals without agreement.
Researcher Hong Young Oh, who led the study, said for a high number of those who restricted their partners' movements, the behaviour stems from a deep-rooted patriarchal attitude of South Korean men.
"The high number of such actions show that the abusers themselves were not aware of or did not recognise their actions as dating abuse.
