The article focuses on the effect of mobility on premarital sex. The logistic regression analysis of the data from the 1976 survey indicated that young women were likely to engage premarital sex for every residential change by their family. However, young women from an intact, religious family and with an educated father were less likely to be sexually active. Moreover, mobility can fracture bonds among community and family levels that can increase the tendency of teenagers to engage in premarital sex.
