a note on formal sexual education, see Grassel and Bach (1979:p295-6).
In one early study on university students,
14.44% of males and 28.8% of females have received first information from
home, 48.56% males, and 37.76% females got their first information from
friends, relatives, or other sources; 33.28% males and 26.03% females at
school. Most of the information was obtained at the ages 14 through 16.
“Child marriage is common among some of Romania's diverse Romani communities. […] The practice of arranged marriages
and underage (even pre-pubescent) brides, however, is generally tolerated by
police and social welfare agencies. But they must now count on increased
scrutiny by European observers as Romania continues to lay the groundwork for European Union accession”.
