EVANSVILLE, Wis. -- Although many people are involved in abusive relationships, a growing number of those people are teenagers.
Health officials said that it's estimated that one in three teens involved in relationships are involved in abusive relationships, whether that be verbal, emotional, physical or sexual. While both boys and girls can be victimized, for girls the abuse tends to be longer-lived, as studies show that 80 percent of girls stay in relationships after the first incident of violence, officials said.
