SERIES 3: CHOOSE AWARENESS

Awareness that most teens choose to wait until marriage to become involved in sexual activity establishes the norm for school-aged youth and can help students with their decision to avoid other risks.  Students should become aware of the risks and consequences of premature sexual activity and their future marriage relationship. 

Students will: 

  1. Discuss the risks that come with premature sexual activity.

  2. Learn the benefits of avoiding sexual activity until establishing a mutually monogamous relationship, usually called ‘marriage’.

  3. Discuss secondary virginity (ceasing sexually risky behaviors until ‘marriage’).

  4. Understand the research facts showing how a healthy and lasting marriage can positively affect their lives.
