Of the boys who'd had a serious girlfriend, 47% said their girlfriend was their age.Among girls who'd had a serious boyfriend, 31% said their boyfriend was their age.June 15, 2006 -- Girls with an older boyfriend at a young age may be more likely to have sex by ninth grade.And those with a serious boyfriend by seventh grade are also more likely to have had sex two grades later. Researchers included Barbara Marin, Ph D, a consultant at the CDC's violence prevention division.When there was an age difference, girls were more likely to be the younger person.
Most of those students reported having relationships with people their own age.So, the researchers want parents to take young love seriously.The findings suggest that "any 'serious' relationship in seventh grade should be cause for concern," they write. "Parents should be warned of the risks of interactions between middle-school females and older boyfriends, even when those boyfriends are only two years older," they write.In their study, Marin and colleagues found that seventh grade girls who have had a serious boyfriend their own age are three times as likely to have sex by ninth grade as their less precocious classmates.What's more, girls who'd had an older boyfriend by seventh grade were twice as likely to have had sex by ninth grade as those who'd had a same-age boyfriend by seventh grade.
"Programs and parents need to find creative ways to address the risks of having an older boyfriend without making such activities appear more attractive than they already are," Marin's team continues.
