Abstract

This study investigates the correlates of post-separation abuse among unmarried women in the Republic of Korea (<i>n</i> = 744). The study employs a logistic regression model to consider if prior intimate partner violence victimization, relationship characteristics, and separation characteristics are associated with post-separation abuse. The results showed that experiencing coercive control by the former partner during the relationship, initiating the separation, and having a lower income than her former partner's income increased the odds of post-separation abuse. The findings imply that programs designed to prevent victimization or enhance victims' safety need to consider broader relationship and separation contexts.
