Leslie Ogu HLWL 1109 10/13/2016 - ​ hapter 9: Adult Sexual Relationships Takeaways from the Chapter ● The comparison between heterosexual and homosexual relationships was interesting in terms of the role of the initiator ● The intention of marriage for those who cohabitate seemed low ● Those who cohabitated tended to have less healthy relationships ● The divorce rate is about 50% ● People believe that cohabitation isn’t always the best step and can have terrible outcomes ● People think living together is a better alternative and less risky than marriage Movement Happening Today about Not Having Kids ● People are thinking of the benefits of not having kids ● There are many alternatives and things you could do if you didn’t have kids ● Relationships are better than material things ● Children are not material ● Some people use alternatives like pets ● This is definitely a topic to discuss before marriage ● There’s the problem of who will stay home to take care of the children Did an activity during class about things to ask for in a marriage Questions: ● Would you like to have children? If so, how many? If not, why not? ● Where would you want to live? City? Rural? Suburban? Why? ● Would you like your partner to take on your last name? Would you mind if your partner did not take on your last name? Is this a major issue for you? ● Would you like a career after marriage? How would you determine who stays with the kids? ● What age would you like to have kids? ● What age would you like to get married? ● What are you willing to compromise on? What is a deal breaker? Outcomes ● Many people do not think of these questions before marriage ● These questions can make or break a relationship ● Sometimes we have plans of how we want things will go but it doesn’t work out that way ● Our family and upbringing has an influence on our answers to these questions and what we want ** Assignments for Contraceptives Given During Class ** Early Dating Experiences ● The dating years usually begin in high school in the United States Interracial and Intercultural Dating ● Today’s college students include largest group of mixed-race students in U.S. history ○ The result is a big increase in mixed-race dating ● Correlations exist between religious and political views and dating outside of one’s race or ethnicity ● Large age differences may be perceived as socially unacceptable Sexuality in Dating Relationships ● In college, “hooking up” is becoming more common (79% - 85%) ○ Fewer than 10% of hookups progress into committed relationships ○ Women are more likely than men to want a committed relationship out of a hookup ● Society links sexuality with youth, although most elderly are sexually interested and active Breaking Up ● The person who initiated the breakup often feels less distress, but guilt ● Some rejected partners become obsessive about the lost relationship ● Social support is important in recovering from a breakup
