Little research has addressed the degree to which
domestic violence is mutual and whether patterns are stable
across women's relationships. Studies that exist have
conflicting results. This study addressed these issues and
the effects of sustaining past violence on women's
expressions of violence in their current relationship.
Archival data from a sample of severely psychologically
abused community women (N = 92) and a sample of low-income
community women (N = 836) were analyzed. Results showed the
presence of mutual violence in women's current relationships
which was not related to past partners' violence. Results
regarding the stability of violence are weak, but indicate
that the frequency and severity of violence across
relationships sustained by women does not decrease across
relationships. Overall, results supported the hypothesis
that violence is mutual in the relationships of community
women, although specific patterns may differ by ethnicity.
