Premarital Sex and Teen Girls
Teen girls who feel inadequate, imperfect and unappreciated are more likely to seek out comfort in premarital sex. But those teen girls who have a life filled with relationships, family traditions, activities, interests and receive consistent love and affirmation are less likely to engage in a desperate search for fulfillment that could lead to unwise premarital sex.

- A steady boyfriend is another factor that can lead to premarital sex.
