The Novel is a good read and convincing to the person who are having pre-marital sex and having an affair. Well it is one of a story that prevents pre-marital sex and scares a person to have a sexual relationship with someone. The ideas are developed from strangers to love but the author does not conlude the chapter and does not summarize it but it is convicing to everyone because it is a lovely story of two strangers who met in a apartment and started falling inlove. It needs to be a film. There are no footnotes but there are headnotes which it describes the point of view of each chapter.
It’s the end of the great date with a girl you like. This might happen after a first date, but it will usually be a further one, that you’ll feel ready to take a step on move to a more intimate, sexual phase in your relationship. Having sex is perfectly natural for men and women, and women want it as much as men do – and there are plenty of studies proving this statement. On the other hand, women indeed tend to resist and try postponing their first time of having sex with a guy. This often happens because a woman will always have this fear of being seen as a “slut”.
“We often approach sexual decisions by determining whether the choices we face are compatible with our moral values” (Rathus, Nevid, Fichner-Rathus page 4). Most of the people that I know believe that sexual intercourse is something that happens when you are in love. I have never believed that it should only happen within a marriage. I believe that it should happen with someone you love because not everyone wants to get married or believe in marriage. In psychology today, author, Barbara Ray says “Marriage--one of society's fundamental institutions--has changed radically in a very short time.
There is this young couple happily in love and decided not to live together before marriage and everything was wonderful, he was always respectful, loving, affectionate, and sensitive toward her feelings. He smells wonderful and his appearance was neat and well groomed, whenever she visited his house it was the same. They went to church together regularly and had the same beliefs in God so she thought. He never complained
But creating family harmony is possible by treating in-laws as your own parents, never complaining to your husband about his mother and allowing your in-laws to take part in ubringing of their grandchildren. First, it is an open secret that having an independent life is very important for married couples but clever and farsighted young people understand that living with parents after marriage, having an extended family can be very beneficial for them because it strengthens bonds in a family. There are no parents and children who have not quarreled for at least once or twice throughout their lives and the main reason of their quarrels has been misunderstandings. So from this we can conclude that if mothers and daughters sometimes quarrel and there is nothing
However, my response to this situation also reinforced the double standard that exists between males and females in our society. I began to apologize for my behavior, comfort him and reinforce that I only cared for him. This response, on both sides, reinforces the stereotype that young woman are supposed to be ‘wholesome’ beings who are uninterested in sex, and only participate in sex to serve the male counterpart. Furthermore, it reinforces the notion that it is perfectly fine for young men to have multiple sexual partners, sometimes at a time, but when women adopt the same behaviors, it is considered taboo or promiscuous as well as undesirable. Therefore, this interaction illustrated to me that, as a woman, having multiple sexual partners is looked down upon in society and perpetuates the narrative of sexually active women as a taboo.
That being said, I disagree with the teaching of abstinence-only. I believe, and it is also apparent that majority of the general public believes, that a more comprehensive sex-education is necessary. Teenagers are going to have sex, that’s inevitable, no teacher or teaching method could ever come close to stopping that from happening. If teenagers are going to have sex, which they will, they should at least be well informed so that they can make the right decisions. With comprehensive sex-education students will be become conscious of the necessary information to ensure their safety.
‘I think sex education should be included enhancing a girls sexual self- image and self esteem, and give her tools to say “no” and ultimately “yes”, when the time is right’ said Anitha H. Clayton, in the Book World Live Discussing (February 13,2007). Sadly in Malaysia, most people conclude that learning about sex as something embarrassing and immoral. They made up their mind thinking that sex education is just about sex which is the sexual intercourse between two different gender. They do not aware that it includes other sensitive issues like sexual health, sexual reproduction, sexuality and personal skills such as decision- making and and communication. Related to that statement, Sabah Education director Datuk Maimunah Suhaibul said the term
Bourgois explains what he has learned from Candy about the cultural traditions. Without the traditional community they once would have had in Puerto Rico, there was no intervention to stop child abuse. As a teenage girl, Candy went against her father’s dominate role by running away. It was not uncommon for such instance to occur Puerto Rico. The family faced no shame by a runaway daughter as long as she allowed her lover to have complete control.
