In the 2012 Marriage Study. new study by psychological scientist Paige Harden of the University of Texas at Austin. The study found that the later a person first had sexual intercourse not only corresponded with a higher education level and household income, but also found they were less likely to be dissatisfied with their relationships in adulthood.
However, the study also found that these latecomers were also less likely to be married and have fewer romantic relationships.
The report used data from the National Longitudinal Study on Adolescent Health that followed 1659 sibling pairs who were followed from the age of 16 to young adulthood (roughly around 29). But the study had a particular method of categorizing ages and sexual experience: “Early” sexual intercourse was younger than the age of 15, so called “on-time” was 15 to 19 and “later” was over 19.
So let’s discuss, would you rather wait to have sex with your partner before you really feel he is the right one, or would you want to have sex early in the relationship as an indicator of your compatibility?
