Do you think it's normal for teens under seventeen to have sex?
No, most people I know were 18+ and seniors in High School or older. I would probably kill my (future) child if they had sex under 17.
I think there is a natural curiosity, but for sure not encouraged in this house!
Even if they all did, it still wouldn't be normal. Sex outside marriage is not normal for the human race, because it goes against our Creator's intent for us.
I agree. My "very normal" statement could be better phrased "very common".
It's very normal. Doesn't mean it's a good thing though.
I find that age isn't necessarily a determining factor in maturity. I know some people younger than myself who are just as mature as I am. And I consider myself to be more mature than a great number of people older than me. I find it natural and in
some cases, actually beneficial. Is it always bad? No. Is it always good? No. I wouldn't advocate it, but it's their decision to make.
The town I grew up in has no stigma against teen pregnancies. The valedictorian of the continuation school at a friend ceremony stated that it wasn't until after she had TWO children did she decide to get her high school diploma. I heard of peers
Having sex in eighth grade. Most people I know had their first time around 10th grade. I definitely don't find it abnormal for children to be having sex between 15 and 17. Not preferable, but not abnormal..
Wow... I was 17 but a freshman in college.
Smart. I was in my last part of 15. I matured at a slower rate than my peers though. I wish I would have waited until I was more mature.
Everybody is different and matures at different rates. I'd say it isn't abnormal.
I had sex long before I was mature enough to have it, unfortunately. I hope I'm the odd man out though.
