with our oldest 4 kids they are in their teens, we have had long discussions about sex. we would love for them to wait until they are married, BUT in the real world they could have sex before then. They have assured me they havnt yet. We dont harp on them about it, but the dialogue is always open and up for discussion. WE are very open with our kids and so far they have always been nothing but honest. Do I think it will encourage them to get married at a younger age? I dont think so. They all have plans with their lives and are very goal and achievement oriented. Our oldest son DOES want to be married and have kids between the ages of 23-25. He said he would prefer to be a youngish parent. We were 18 when we got married (18 years ago) he doesnt want to be that young, LOL but still in his early 20's. So we shall see.
