I usually listen to different public debates that love kills, but when I checked the scientific evidence, there is clear evidence that this statement is a hoax that increases significantly gender violence. This pseudoscientific statement is contrary to four clear scientific evidences: 1) The violence or non violence in a sporadic or stable relationship depends on the partner being violent or not. 2) There is violence and non violence in both stable and sporadic relationships. 3) It is more frequent to have sporadic sex with violent partners than in stable relationships and it is much more normalized 4) This pseudoscientific statement is used even with underage people in order to press them not to fall in love and to have what is considered “free” relationships ignoring the violence in many hook-ups.
