ABSTRACT:
Dating Relationship can be defined as initial phase in which two people are affectionately involved primarily with an intention to assess each other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship. Though young adults are involved in dating relationship but they experience violence in their relation. There are majorly 3 dimensions of violence: Physical, Sexual and Emotional. So, this research has been planned to determine the percentage of young adults who are in a relationship and whether they are experiencing violence in their dating relationship. If there is violence then what are the reasons behind continuing such relationship. To study this, a questionnaire consisting of 63 items was prepared and was given to 155 college students of age group 19-24 years. The data analysis of research showed that the young adults are facing violence in their dating relationship. Among the 3 dimensions of violence, 66.4% of young adults are facing physical violence 36% of young adults are facing emotional violence 18.96% of young adults are facing sexual violence. It was also found that; though these people are facing violence in their relationship they are still continuing the relationship due to the emotional support, which they get from their partners.
