Recent research has found a link between alcohol use and relationship violence. When alcohol is consumed, there appeared to be a greater risk for violence between a couple. This violence appeared as physical, sexual, and psychological abuse to one's partner.
This may not be surprising for many of us. It might even conjure up memories of Yeardley Love, a Baltimore native who went to UVA, and was horribly beaten to death by her boyfriend, George Huguely after he had been out drinking. The One Love Foundation sprung from this tragic loss to help others identify and escape dangerous and unhealthy relationships.
