AbstractViolent victimization disrupts lives and has the potential to undermine socioeconomic well-being. Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a particular concern because rates rise during adolescence to high rates in early adulthood. Prior literature has been hampered by specialized samples, short time-periods, and limited theoretical development. We draw from theorizing on victimization in the life course and the stress process model to analyze the Add Health data covering a twelve-year period. We find pathways from adolescent and early adult IPV are associated with reduced adult socioeconomic well-being. This provides evidence for the enduring effects of adversity on life course inequality.
