Originality/Value The study was limited because it focuses on only one university, and research in the area of dating violence in Nigeria has not been extensively reported.The study therefore emphasizes the impact of socialization process on dating behavior of young adults in Nigeria as well as the need to have further studies on these dating patterns.If you don’t want to get married, that’s fine but recognize it’s your own choice or at least don’t use a convenient excuse like “divorce rates are high” when it really has nothing to do with your predisposition not to marry.I see marriage in my future but I often wonder do I see myself married merely because that’s how I’ve been conditioned?Purpose Dating violence has, in recent times, been a social problem that has been creating different levels of concern especially among parents, and those in the academia, in Nigeria.Studies have shown causes to be largely due to personality types, but little relate it with violence between the parents of the perpetrator.
That is fine and I understand where you’re coming from.However, while I understand how a person whose parents divorced would not want the dissolution of their parents marriage held against them, they must also understand that they cannot dictate the terms of how other people judge them.Many argued that their parents do not define them, and while I agree, I do believe our parents have a varying degree of influence on our future, positive or negative, whether we like it or not.Of course we should not be punished for the sins of our parents.But, it is our parents sins which often have the greatest influence on our own actions.
This study will serve as addition to the gradually increasing literature on dating behavior of young adults in the Nigerian society. Although carefully collected, accuracy cannot be guaranteed. Differing provisions from the publisher's actual policy or licence agreement may be applicable.
