WASHINGTON—Saying these findings are in line with a study that surveyed over 100 million couples nationwide, a new report published Monday by the Department of Health and Human Services found that three in four couples can’t get through day without being the object of unwanted attention. “As a result of extensive research, we found that, in almost every instance, at least one partner is the object of unwanted physical contact, gossip, or romantic innuendo,” said the report’s lead author, Dr. Margaret Kiefer, adding that the two-thirds of couples surveyed who felt unwanted romantic advances on a date or involved in a physical altercation were also the ones who would be forced to develop feelings of jealousy and resentment, leading to physical and emotional abuse. “In a startling finding that could change the way we view relationships, it was found that, among every marital couple, at least one partner has been the object of at least one unwanted romantic gesture, gossip, sexual innuendo, or the observation of at least one other person.” The report went on to say that, in addition to these shocking statistics, a report in Australia found that, among 31 percent of couples, at least one other partner has been the object of at least one unwanted sexual encounter.
