Annotation: Data obtained from a questionnaire completed by 434 engaged Arab-Palestinian men living in Israel were used to explain the respondents' differential use of three conflict tactics (reasoning, physical aggression, and verbal aggression) with their fiancees.
Abstract: Variables were used to represent three frameworks: male dominance, intergenerational learning, and interpersonal skills deficit. The results showed that men who used reasoning in solving conflicts with their fiancees were less likely to have a family background characterized by violence, more likely to have egalitarian expectations of marriage, and more likely to be characterized as androgynous. Men who were verbally and physically aggressive toward their fiancees were more likely to have been exposed to violence in their own homes, less likely to empathize with their fiancees, and more likely to hold traditional and negative attitudes toward women. 2 tables and 34 references
