what about abstinence pledges?

In recent years, pledges of virginity or abstinence, such as ” No sex until marriage, ” have become popular among youths. These pledges reflect commendable goals and are in harmony with Bible commands. However, their effectiveness is debatable. According to one survey, about 60 percent teens broke their pledge within a year.

In addition, there is concern over just how some youths define “abstinence” and “virginity”. “The rise of oral sex, even anal sex, has been linked by experts to kids wantng to stay ‘technically’ virgins. They decide anything that’s not intercourse isn’t sex.

what do you think?
