Couples today cohabit for numerous reasons, ranging from more time together, financial concerns, and fear of the commitment of marriage ...
How good does it go for tertiary institutions.
Students are sent to the university to learn and make the best of their Education but when the aim turns negative, what do you get in return.
Someone once said a few of these (They wine and dine together, They read and study together, Th3y do basicaly everything together)
Where are the moral values of our youth?
Is this monster called Cohabitation morally right or wrong?
Do we seat back and watch this ugly trend or norms sweep up our youth?
These are a few questions that came up on a discussion board.
A few of these students are likely going to encounter the following in such situations but at the same time I will like to add, if priorities are set right, they should have no problems or negatives to cohabiting.
Domestic violence is set to be a part of such cohabitation. You ask me why? I will tell you.
Knowing how our youth fall prey to emotions and its ups n downs, there is every chance that at one point or the other one may offend the other be it by word's or actions and they wil go straight to taking law's into their hands to violence and not dialogue as clearly majority of them are young and not well taken on the need to allow dialogue to solve a difference.
Psycological Trauma, without saying much in this one in particular, take a leaf from the violence one suffers and come to terms with the trauma that comes with it.
Unwanted Pregnancy. So long they cohabit, they are bound to get intimate time and again, and a lot of them are not well educated on the goods and bads that comes with s3x, at the end some get pregnant as proper s3xual knowledge wasnt given (females).
STD's. Without the knowledge, you can't known how to protect yourself, you cant know who or how to know the infected persons so diseases and infections come into play and a lot of damages comes with this.
Low Academic performances. Male and Female students that engages in 'Cohabitation' wrongly find it difficult combining studies and other activities perfectly as clearly the above effect creates room for a lot of distraction which in turn brings the low grades and weak academic performance.
Now the big questios are.
1. Is it right or wrong?
2. How can one balance between this? As clearly you can't stop a male and his female friend (lover) from dating.
