CHAPTER 1

THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Introduction

Premarital sex happens when people are not yet married but experienced sexual
activity with their partners. Generally speaking, the human sex drive is so strong in which
people cannot control their sexual desires which leads to premarital sex.

Sexual activity among teenagers has increased overtime. Commission on


Population (Popcom) Executive Director Dr. Juan Perez III, said in an interview on
March 23 (include the year) that one out of three girls and boys 15 to 19 years of age
have engaged in premarital sex it clearly shows that premarital sex is widely done by the
teenagers in the Philippines.

Social opposition and legal restrictions on extra-marital sexual activity are a


typical factor in most human societies but are especially pronounced in societies where
religious justifications for rules of conduct for sexual relationships and the family unit are
prominent.

Premarital sex was considered a moral issue which was taboo in many cultures
and considered immoral and a big issue in any religions. In some religion, especially
Catholic they consider premarital sex as a sin because they believe sex is for those people
who are married. All leaders in Christianity reveals that premarital sex is a mortal sin. It
is written in the bible that sex before marriage is dirty and must be forgiven only through
confession. Though churches teach that premarital sex is wrong, yet it is still happening
around the world. Man and woman who are not married yet but perform premarital sex is
breaking the sacrament of marriage and they separate themselves to our God.

One in every three Filipino teenagers has engaged in premarital sex. Cendaña,
National Youth commissioner, stated in her interview with Inquirer Radio 990AM last
April 2014 40 percent of the youth had an early sexual encounter. Cendaña cited the
findings of the 2013 Young Adult Fertility and Sexuality Study which shows that 35.5
3

percent of males and 28.7 percent of females who are 15 to 24 years old had an early
encounter with sex.

Youth should not solely blame for their early engagement in sex. There are factors
which lead them to do sexual intercourse even outside marriage. It in this light that the
researchers conduct a study entitled “Factors Affecting Premarital Sex” to find out the
reasons why youth do premarital sex in their young age.
