Quoting ~Julie Blue Eyes~:" Yup. I am "old school" about sex. I am currently a widow who is in an abstinent, semi-serious relationship. ... [snip!] ... I realize that sex is a free for all, these days, but does that mean I shouldn't teach what I think is moral? Of course not."
Quoting TantricLemons:" damn temptation mean to confuse us... mumblemumblemumbleevolutionmumble mumbledinosaurs"
Quoting ❥ Meℓi:" The dude who is for Abstinence Education is trying to say "They are going to end up with broken hearts if they just go out & have sex with whoever they want because they are given condoms.""
Quoting Vanilla MILFshake.:" I think it's better they end up with broken hearts than all kinds of STD's just because they weren't educated on the subject."Or pregnant lol. A broken heart is only temporary having a kid is a life time choice, some STD's also stick with you for the rest of your life.
Quoting xTJ:" Sex education. I attended Catholic School where we were taught not to have sex before Marriage, there ... [snip!] ... high school there was only ever one girl who got pregnant. Not surprisingly our son attends a non denominational school."Yea, my mom is Catholic & I was raised that way but my mom ALWAYS told me to use condoms & birth control. When I felt it was time to get birth control I went to her & asked her. She got me some & I never got pregnant as a teen. My friends who had overly strict parents are the ones who got pregnant at 16.
Quoting ❥ Meℓi:" Well that sucks that you don't have sex until marriage lol. I mean I believe in holding out some, but ... [snip!] ... To me a piece of paper that says I am married doesn't mean that much & most marriages end in divorce these days anyways."
Quoting xTJ:" <blockquote><b>Quoting ❥ Meℓi:</b>" Yea, my mom is Catholic & I was ... [snip!] ... from anywhere and they are the ones at risk. Simply saying don't do it or it's bad or whatever and nothing else doesn't work."
Quoting ~Julie Blue Eyes~:" It doesn't "suck" at all. Both of us are quite happy. I do need that pesky piece of paper. I love the ... [snip!] ... that it stands for, for me. My first marriage didn't end in divorce. "Most" marriages may, but mine didn't. It works for me."Well that's good for you, I love sex & I could not hold out on it for that long lol. I guess I don't value marriage like that. You must have found you a great guy because most dudes aren't going to wait. All of us have sexual needs & a lot of guys will go else where if they don't get it from their relationship. Just my experience though. I think relationships need intimacy to move forward to anything...
Quoting HopingforaMiracle:" Where I live when I was in high school they taught abstinence only. We went from one teen pregnancy who ... [snip!] ... You can teach them to be abstinent until you are blue in the face but if they are going to do it they will do it regardless."
