Analysis and Interpretation of Data
In analysing the study. cumulative informations revealed that bulk of the respondents were between the ages of 14 and 16 followed by the age group: 17 and 19. and the minority: 11 to 13. The study was conducted at a individual sex ( female ) school but questionnaires were issued to males who attend 6th signifier categories at the establishment. Male respondents were significantly outnumbered by female respondents. Persons engaged in prenuptial sex counted for less than half of the respondents. The questionnaire besides disclosed that a little sum of these respondents were non Christians which led more than half to believe that sex before matrimony is non morally incorrect. Most others believing that it is incorrect had the same statement: it is against the Torahs of the Bible. Other grounds were that sex is particular and should be put off until the right individual comes along and that it was against their upbringing. Some respondents. nevertheless. insinuated that that ‘special person’ may ne’er come along. Besides. endocrines are difficult to command and that whatever one feels to make is their ain personal personal businesss in which others should non interfere.
Although some respondents’ reaction was that prenuptial sex is morally incorrect. a profuse sum tolerate the act among their equals. Merely a really little figure of individuals believed in abstention until matrimony and the same can be said for those who encourage the act. Eminently. peer force per unit area was the plurality for the dominant cause of sex before matrimony. Infatuation and curiosity/ignorance came in 2nd with around the same sum of individuals taking those factors. Sexual desire and sexual adulthood were besides mentioned as other causes. Other causes of prenuptial sex were about equally chosen among respondents. Harmonizing to the rating of informations. many respondents believed that individuals engaged in prenuptial sex because they do non hold any cognition of the possible effects. Most respondents revealed that their sexual cognition came chiefly from friends and telecasting. Others said their cognition came from their parents. books. and other signifiers of media such as magazines and music.
One response that everyone agreed on was that if parents allow their kid to be excessively “free” or if they keep sheltered. it can coerce them to be engaged in sex. If you tell person non to make something. so they will desire to make it even more. If you give person excessively much room to make something. they will finally make it. Therefore. at that place has to be a balance. Another issue raised was that of the alterations in individuals holding sex. A batch of respondents saw alterations in their peers’ attitude: they get bolder and move more mature ; visual aspect: they carry themselves better ; academic work: their classs start to drop and their societal life: they “come out of their shell” and interact more with individuals of the different sex. However. no 1 mentioned anything holding to make with the alteration in wellness of their equals.
They may be unaware of the possible dangers. Unwanted gestations were deemed the chief consequence of sex earlier matrimony as chosen by most respondents. This was followed by the transmittal of sexually transmitted infections and promiscuousness severally. One individual mentioned that another consequence was cervical malignant neoplastic disease. Harmonizing to research. prenuptial sex leads to issues within future intimate relationships. Most respondents agreed with this statement. A few were open and some disagreed. The feedback revealed chiefly that sex before matrimony can take to depression. This is because of unwanted gestations. malaise from undertaking sexually transmitted infections and guilt from disobeying their parents and more significantly. God’s word. This can do individuals to insulate themselves within subsequently relationships and may do familiarity issues between spouses.
Besides. the concern of trust was great among picks. It may act upon individuals to believe that their spouse is being dishonest in the bond ; chiefly because the spouse views the issue of prenuptial sex as ‘just sex’ . If this is the 2nd party’s attitude toward sex. so that individual could be involved in outside relationships without sorrow. Another consequence of prenuptial sex was bad matrimonies. This was the 2nd least favorite pick among pupils.
However. surveies show that major effects such as gestations can thrust individuals into ‘shot gun’ matrimonies where these matrimonies barely of all time work out because the individuals involved. possibly. were non even in a relationship and did non portion a common love for each other. Some. but really small individuals besides believe that one time engaged in prenuptial sex. it may go overrated and they may non see it as particular when they get married. Fortunately. most respondents believe that parents can work out the issue of prenuptial sex through parent-child communicating. At the same clip. more believe that media can non assist in happening the solution to this ever-growing issue of prenuptial sex.

Recommendations and Implementation Strategy
Sexual activity abstention instruction can be a really effectual method of bar for prenuptial sex if done right. This includes helping teens in placing sexual enticements. avoiding or taking these enticements wholly. learning them to mention to the Bible for inspiration. and giving them options such as puting them in athleticss or other extracurricular activities. Parenting is a personal committedness. Parents can non ever depend on schools and churches to learn their kids about sex. Children live what they learn hence if the parental belief is that adolescent sex is appropriate. the stripling will excessively and will move on that belief. When speaking about sex with teens. the attack of the parent has to be one that is understanding and unfastened minded. but at the same clip focused.
