Student,

I am glad to assist you in your academic and professional journey! Thank you for posting this challenging question for assistance. My goal is to provide information that you can use to further develop this assignment and help you on the fast forward track to completion. At BrainMass, we do not, however, provide homework completion as a service; rather, we assist in helping you critically think through your problem of which ultimately will serve as a robust tool for you in completing your work. Also, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of that in any setting, you must properly cite, reference, and/or give credit where it is due. It would not benefit you to merely copy and paste the following information, because it is developed to help you think more thoroughly about the topics at hand and serves as a guide, not completed works. However, I am very excited to share my knowledge with you and assist you in meeting your goals! Also, the references I will be sharing with you are in APA format. You have requested 4 pages of information. I will use the standard, Times New Roman, 12pt font as a guide to completing this task for you.

Identify Incidence of conflict and/or violence in premarital relationships

1. Define the problem- of why there are incidences of conflict and/or violence in premarital relationship
2. Identify potential causes of the violence in premarital relationships
3. Document people who have experienced this kind of problem-Responses of each member of the couple
4. Initiate a method of therapeutic intervention

Define the problem - of why there are incidences of conflict and/or violence in premarital relationships AND #2 - Identify potential causes of the violence in premarital relationships

There are various reasons why couples, of whom are not married, experience violence and conflict. I want to provide you some thinking tools to use in hopes of probing your thoughts of why there is an incidence of this type of behavior in premarital conflicts. My first thought comes from work that I have done as a case worker. When I was working as a case worker in the child welfare sector, most of my clients were not married. In fact, it was very rare to have a case where the mother and father of the child were married. Out of, well...over 30 or 40 cases I worked on continuously, I cannot think of any instance where a couple was married. Now, think of the types of clients one might encounter in the child welfare sector...can you imagine the most likely type of population? In all reality, that should answer your question! On the flip side of the coin, what if I was working with a very prominent, wealthy family where the mother and father were not married as well? Does financial status always play a part in premarital conflict? No. Why is that? When thinking about this question, there are various types of avenues one can go down when presenting information...so let's turn to the scholarly literature for some guidance...

I am going to report, briefly, on an article discussing premarital conflict. I do encourage you to further seek the journal publication for additional data and supporting facts. Most libraries have the ability to reproduce these types of articles.

In their article, Gatzeva and Paik (2011) discuss the emotional and physical satisfaction of noncohabitating, cohabitating, and marital relationships. You are concerned with noncohabitating and cohabitating relationships, as opposed to marital relationships. Gatzeva and Paik (2011) explain that jealously is a large, contributing factor to premarital conflict. Have you ever been jealous? Have you ever been so ...
