When transitioning to both middle school and college you experience going from the oldest most experienced students, to the youngest least experienced students. 3. How would you describe, in general, physical strength in young adulthood? In young adulthood you are beginning to peak. Your physical performance is at its peak in late adulthood. 4. After reading the section on Health, think about your own personal health habits and evaluate yourself in the following areas: Eating, Weight, Exercise, and Substance Abuse. I eat a fairly healthy diet. I try to eat a veggie, fruit, and protein at each meal. I do have my days that I eat junk food though. I currently am overweight. After high school I had no schedule work out time so I gained weight. Currently I exercise 5 days a week and am working on losing the weight again. I do not abuse substances. I have no desire to consume alcohol or drugs. I think it is a waste of time to participate in that. I also am underage so the risk of drinking and getting caught is not worth it. 5. Does research support the statement: “Sexual orientation is biologically determined”? Explain your answer. An individual’s sexual orientation is determined by a combination of genetic, hormonal, cognitive, and environmental factors. 6. Read the introduction to chapter 12 about Greg and Gwenna. Love is a central theme of this chapter. Before continuing, write your definition here, of love—as if you were writing it as a dictionary entry. Love something or someone that you feel strongly about. 7. Review the four attachment patterns we discussed in chapter 4 and list them.

What are the 3 elements he says must be present in a true love relationship? How does each contribute to a lasting relationship? Passion, intimacy, and commitment. In order to reach consummate love, you have to have all three characteristics with your partner. 10. Study Fig. 12.2. Define cohabitation. Site some research findings about couples who choose to cohabit. Living together in a sexual relationship without being married. Couples have been cohabitating more now than before. 3.8 million couples cohabitated in 2000 and then 7.5 million in 2010. (US Census Bureau, 2010) 11. Compare and contrast the trends/rates in cohabitation with the current trends/rates in marriage. Explain your thoughts on possibilities for why this trend is occurring. Kortney Keane More couples are choosing to cohabitate and not get married. I think that this is not necessarily a bad idea. I think that you could save a lot of money by living together but not getting married. Weddings alone cost a lot of money so skipping that part is not a bad idea. 12. What is the average age for marriage of men and women? What is the average duration of a marriage? 28.7 men 26.5 women. The average duration of a marriage is just over nine years. 13.

This is because people who are involved in a happy marriage are less likely to experience stress and wear and tear on the body. 14. List the factors associated with higher incidence of divorce. Youthful marriage, low education level, low income, not having a religious affiliation, having parents who are divorced, and having a baby before marriage. 15.

A person is technically an adult when they turn 18. 16. Refer back to pg. 310311. Read “Finding a Path to Purpose”. Comment on the 7 bulleted points. What is most important to you? What does it mean to have a good life? What is your personal career plan? What is your own personal career plan? (3 pts.) My family is most important to me. To have a good life means that I am happy and healthy and have positive people around me. After college I plan on searching for a job as a teacher in an area close to my residence. At some point I want to return to school to get my Master’s Degree so I can further my education and become a better teacher.
