Background: Research has found a significant link with domestic violence and adjustment in adulthood regarding romantic relationships (Bartholomew & Horowitz, 1991; Cameranesi, 2016; Shaver, Collins & Clark, 1996). Previous research has found that secure attachments are negatively linked with emotional reactivity and abuse in intimate relationships. However, research has suggested that the two negative attachments, anxious-ambivalent and avoidant, categories are chronically anxious about rejection and abandonment in their close relationships and consequently show high levels of negative effects including anger and jealously in intimate relationships (Buunk, 1997; Dutton & Starzomski, 1993; Hazan & Shaver, 1987, 1990; Schumacher, Feldbau-Kohn, Slep & Heyman, 2001). It is believed that adult attachment patterns are associated with a range of relationship outcomes including satisfaction, trust, communication and conflict resolution (Bartholomew, 1993; Hazan & Shaver, 1994; Shaver & Hazan, 1993).
