Debate: Do abstinence until marriage programs work?

Ok studies shown from the link below prove that the program is not only ineffective but unethical, and causes poor health.

Point One there was sex before there was marriage.

Second sex until marriage will not stop people from having martial issues or divorce. Ex a friend of mine has a step mom who took abstinence and got married she stayed with him for years and quit because she was really unhappy.

Third an final point is though research comparing Europian culture and ours it shows that forcing abstinence on our youth without actual sex education, not only pyschology damage and conflict with parents, but forces kids to learn about sex from their peers.

There's a documentary about it called "Let's talk About Sex."

Just type into goggle "let's talk about sex documentary" or look below

  • Nov 13 2012: Not having sex before marriage is just asking for trouble.
    First of all, its important to know if all your various bits fit together well
    Compatibility is important to find out before its too late
    If you live in the snowy prairie its a great aerobic activity for the weekends.
    Its also better if you live together before marriage as well.
    Then you can discover if your underwear draped in the bathroom habits annoy your potential spouse or not.
