Title: Survey sheds new light on marriage and sexuality in the Philippines 
Author: Xenos, Peter
Date: 1997
Publisher: Honolulu: East-West Center
Abstract: According to the 1994 Young Adult Fertility and Sexuality Study (YAFS-II), most of the sexual activity reported by young people in the Philippines takes place within the context of a committed relationship. Such relationships usually pass through a continuum leading to some form of traditional or formally sanctioned marriage. These results suggest that "marital status" is a rather poor basis for deciding whether to provide or withhold family planning and reproductive health services.
