I wonder if these studies took into account whether or not the individual who
did not engage in premarital sex also possessed a belief against divorce. If
you do not believe in divorce, then including the fact that your marriage has
not ended in divorce is misleading.However, a comprehensive study by
the CDC did find that people who engage in cohabitation have a higher risk of
divorce...sometimes. There was only a 5% higher chance of divorce for men, 1%
higher risk for women. But, if the couple was engaged when they moved in, their
marriage actually had a 5% lower divorce rate.
It's great that she wants to remain a virgin until she's married.
That said, I don't think it should be announced to the world, it is a
private matter. What will she do now if she meets some guy and suddenly changes
her mind? What then? Not to mention the entire country/world examining her
(real-or-imagined) sex life under the Hubble Telescope.
She is so cute and happy! Look at her face. No wonder why.
