Violence in intimate relationships seems to be one of the most problematic fields of social functioning, and it also includes individual and collective level of society. Specificity of violence in intimate relationships is its tendency to be more mutual in youth relationships and it is not gender based in all forms of violence. In this qualitative research, which complements earlier scientific work on the subject, our goal is to achieve deeper individual and collective understanding of violence in intimate relationships. After interviewing our respondents and consulting earlier analysis on the matter, we have come to a conclusion that the youth does not recognize all forms of relationship violence, especially economic and emotional/psychological violence. Furthermore, we've concluded that justifying and not recognizing violence in intimate relationships is based on adopted gender roles, gender stereotypes and myths about violence. Also, the tendency to seeking help after immediate or indirect violent situation and tendency to intervening in violent situations by family and friends is greatly based on defining, perceiving and understanding violence. As a matter of fact, young people are more likely to intervene and seek help after physical and/or sexual violence were involved. However, our findings show that the youth has very little trust in institutions and executive authority. Also, their perception of violence in intimate relationships as personal instead of social matter is the reason why they are more prone to seek help from their families and friends.
