This investigation was conducted in two groups of women. A group of women who have suffered domestic violence and another group of married women who do not suffer violence. Was investigated the two dimensions of attachment: Anxiety and Avoidance. To correlate was also investigated the Styles of Love stipulated for Lee, and the Satisfaction of their relationships. The research was conducted in three countries: Brazil, Spain and Portugal. The objective was to determine the difference between the two groups, the variables: Dimensions of Attachment, Styles of Love and Marriage Adjustment. We believe that this study has helped us better understand the consequence of domestic violence, and detected more emotional factors to help rebuild self-esteem and encourage more projects to prevent domestic violence. To measure of the variables was used Spanish and Portuguese versions of the Scales. To measure the Dimensions of Attachment was used of the Experiences in Close Relationships, ECR (Brennan, K. A., Clark, C. L. and Shaver, P. R., 1998, Spanish adaptation of Alonso-Arbiol y otros, 2007 and Portuguese adaptation of Moreira, J. M, y otros. 2006). To measure the Styles of Love was be used the Love Attitudes Scale, LAS (Hendrick y Hendrick, 1986, Spanish adaptation of Zubieta, E. 2001 and Portuguese adaptation of Andrade, A., Garcia, A. 2009). And to measure the Marital adjustment was used Dyadic Adjusment Scale, DAS (Spanier, 1976, Spanish adaptation of Carrasco, C., 1996, and Portuguese adaptation of Gomez, R., Leal, I, 2008). The results show some aspects that help the partner get a more harmonious relationship. We emphasize that jealousy, obsession and possession are very present in women victims of domestic violence and these feelings do women have an illusory satisfaction of love. There is a great need to educate society from the early loving relationships, because the ideas and erroneous beliefs about love, such as "I feel jealous because I love." The Style of Love changes with the duration of the relationship, in Stable love relationship, starts with Eros and over the years changed to Agape. In women who have suffered domestic violence predominates Mania and Storge love. The dimensions of Attachment Anxiety present in women who have a stable relationship and the dimensions of Attachment Avoidance in battered women.
