Higher status than one’s partner makes both men, women vulnerable to intimate partner violence
Having a higher income or education than your partner could be risky, as a higher socio-economic status than one’s partner increases the chance of psychological violence and abuse. This applies to both men and women. “Whenever power is unevenly allocated in a relationship the chance of physical and psychological abuse increases. And the abused partner is the one with the highest status,” says a sociologist.
