My son, 18, is sexually active and he knows how to be safe, to protect himself AND his partner, and to be selective when choosing a sex partner, rather than just falling into bed with anything with a pulse. His girlfriend is the same age and they've been together for a year, having sex for "a few months."
I really don't see the big deal as long as they're not being forced into it and they're using protection.I know things happen and she could very well end up pregnant because no protection is 100%, but they know what to do and that they can come to me and my husband and to her parents if/when it does.
They're not flaunting it in our faces or having sex where we can catch them, but they're also not hiding anything. They're open and affectionate like a married couple - chaste kisses here and there, hugs, handholding, cuddling on the sofa watching TV with the family, not making out or shoving their tongues down each other's throats in front of us.
Do you think there's anything wrong with this?
