if you had your DD make a "virginity" promise to you as her parent, and then found out she didn't adhere to this promise as an adult. She did in fact have sex at the age of 21 with her bf.
Do you think this kinnd of "promise" is even appropriate to make with your child? Do you feel it's still appropriate to inquire about your DD's sex life once she is an adult? How does your religion play into this?

I think it was pretty great of her to have waited until she was 21 to have sex. She is an adult and unless it was specified in the "promise" that she would wait until she was married whats the issue? I like the "promises" kids make with their parents, but worry sometimes that it cuts off communication between them about sex. And I hope my kids always feel comfortable coming to me to talk about sex at any age.

I don't like the whole virginity promise, especially with rings and everything, it makes me uncomfortable and it would have made me uncomfortable as a teen. I talk to my kids and I listen to what they have to say, ultimately the decisions are theirs and so are the consequences. I try to instill in them that they are responsible for their actions. My religion does play into it because my faith teaches responsibility, and to be contemplative about your life so you can make good choices for yourself.
