Of the female subjects who’d had intercourse at 15 or younger, 31 percent divorced within five years of marriage, and 47 percent split up within 10 years. While the women who had waited till at least 16 had divorce rate of 15 percent at five years, and 27 percent at 10 years.The lead researcher offered one potential explanation: “[It’s possible] the women who had sex as adolescents were predisposed to divorce. The attitudes that made them feel OK about having sex as teens may have also influenced the outcome of their marriage.” Hmm, we’re not totally sold on that theory, professor. What do you think? What’s the reason for the correlation between having sex before 16 and divorce?by Cosmopolitan.com Tweetlast_img read more
