Despite concerns about sexual compatibility, she firmly opposed pre-marital sex, urging youth to rely on divine guidance.

Her stance aligns with recent statistics from the Ghana Statistical Service, revealing high rates of pre-marital sexual activity among unmarried youth aged 15-24.

Per the Statistical Service, 50% of unmarried women aged 15-24 have engaged in pre-marital sex, with similar trends among men.

Among never-married women aged 15-19, one in three reported sexual activity, highlighting the prevalent societal shift.

The declining percentage of abstinent young men and women signals evolving attitudes towards pre-marital sex in Ghanaian society.
