Pretty personal questions. Don't expect a straight answer. Both of our children are grown. The oldest moved as far away as possible, the other will be getting married this summer and will be moving just as far in the other direction. They're both in their twenties.
I didn't marry until I was past 30. But where I'm from, getting married in your teens is, or was, common. That's what has changed more than anything over the years. People get married later, if they marry at all. There have been times when people were less likely to marry than now for a variety of reasons. One reason was because they didn't want children. I believe there is more pressure to marry these days but also to marry later. Funny, isn't it?
I don't think virginity is so important unless you're plannning on becoming a religious and entering a community. That's not so common anymore, however. Otherwise, we tend to make rather too much of it, I think. But apparently it still generates a lot of interest.
The media? Which came first?
