The relaxation of the sexual taboos of a generation ago has affected today’s society. One of the effects of this relaxation is the increase of premarital sex in today’s society. Premarital sex can be defined as sexual relations outside the institution of marriage. Premarital sex may occur because of premature bonding—the merging of personalities before developing one’s own. Premarital sex is a difficult issue to deal with in today’s society. The purpose, pressures, and consequences of sex have
