This study was conducted to examine the relationships among acceptance of couple violence, attraction to abuse, and beliefs about relationship red flags among college students. We conducted an online survey of 159 students at Chapman University to investigate the relationship among attraction to abuse, acceptance of couple violence, and perceived relationship. The results indicated that there is a positive correlation between students feeling attracted to abuse and acceptance of violence in their relationship. However, there was not a clear correlation between the acceptance of violence and the ability to perceive relationship red flags, but we did find that students who feel that jealousy is okay in a relationship are also more accepting of violence in their relationship.
