Carmen wants to stay a virgin until she gets married. But TV, music and peer pressure all seem to be conspiring against her. Is virginity losing its value in our culture?

Carmen was mentored by Matt Abramovitz.

I agree with you. If you feel that you should wait until you are married, that is very good.
