So they're discovering abstinence *does* pay...

According to this study of data from the National Longitudinal Study of Youth, they discovered that being abstinent through high school has its payoffs (besides averting disease, pregnancy, and emotional problems), such as completing an average of one year more of higher education, obtaining 20% higher salaries, and having about half the rate of divorce as those who weren't abstinent before 18. So abstinence may seem "uncool" these days, but there are definitely advantages to waiting until marriage and maturity.
