Sex In College

2 Sep

In college as in all life temptation is always lurking. The temptation to cut class, to lie to your parents about your grades, and to skip studying are just a few temptations that can ruin a semester. However, there is an often unspoken temptation that is much more detrimental; sexual temptation which leads to pregnancy.

Although I know of no formal studies or numbers to support my views. I have personally witnessed and spoken to many college students who are about to be parents. Instantly your life has just become super complex. It even gets worse when pregnancy causes students to drop out of school. Regardless of your situation (unless it is advised to you by a medical or mental health professional) leaving college is not the answer.

Regardless, of any bad decisions you have made yesterday college can still help you tomorrow. I don’t have all the answers. There are many schools that offer “family housing” and other alternative ways of still getting your degree. The road is not easy once your in this situation.

The best thing to do is NOT engage in illicit sex that can lead to pregnancy. Sex was created to make babies so if you don’t want a baby…well you know the rest.

Dear friend, if bad companions tempt you,
don’t go along with them – Proverbs 1:9
