The association between the frequency of wife assault and marital dissolution in Canada
AbstractA strong positive association between wife abuse in the first marriage and the probability of that marriage ending is documented and investigated using the 1993 Violence Against Women survey (VAWS) for Canada and controlling for the endogeneity of abuse. A sensitivity analysis suggests that systematic reporting differences are not likely to account for the findings.
