Break the Cycle, which publishes "report cards" on state laws against teen dating violence, gave South Carolina an automatic F for its failure to protect people in dating relationships. 30, 2013, Sierra Landry, at 18, was shot in the face and killed by her ex-boyfriend, 18-year-old Tanner Crolley, in Lancaster, S. Jessica Landry told Crimesider that Sierra was 16 when she met Crolley and that the two had been dating for a little over a year when she was killed.

It can also be emotional where the partner feels jealousy or tries to control the dressing, walking or speaking style of the other (Jackson, 1999).

In this case the partner is emotionally unstable because the affected partner cannot express his/her desires.

While both teenage boys and girls report acting violently because they were angry, teenage boys are much more likely to use force in order to control their girlfriends, while girls more often act violently in self-defense.

Sexual abuse refers to forced or unwanted sexual activity or rape.

Break the Cycle, an agency devoted to empowering youth to end domestic violence, says that seven other states, a majority of which are in the south, also do not include dating relationships in their definition of domestic violence, often preventing the youngest victims of relationship abuse from applying for any type of restraining order.
