Women Who Lost Their Virginity As Teenagers Are 'more Likely To Divorce', Says New Study

Recommended Posts


Women who lost their virginity as young teenagers are more likely to divorce - especially if it was unwanted, according to new research.

The University of Iowa study shows that 31 per cent of women who had sex for the first time as teens divorced within five years, and 47 per cent within 10 years.

Among women who delayed sex until adulthood, 15 per cent divorced at five years, compared to 27 per cent at 10 years.

Although I'm wondering how many lied about when they did lose it? Self reporting can be very inaccurate.

Adulthood being the legal age of consent?

What constitutes a "young teen".

I Googled young teen in a quest for more info. :o

Serves me right for turning "safe search" off.
