Abstinence Until Marriage Programs

Definition - What does Abstinence Until Marriage Programs mean?

Abstinence until marriage programs are sex education programs that promote abstaining from sexual intercourse outside of the confines of marriage. These programs typically do not provide information on birth control because that is viewed as promoting premarital sexual activity.

Kinkly explains Abstinence Until Marriage Programs

Abstinence until marriage programs were proven ineffective in preventing teenage and premarital sexual activity. Since they do not teach about and, in some cases malign the use of, contraceptives, studies have show that students who participate in abstinence until marriage programs are not less likely to have sex. They are also less likely to use contraception.
