School Prohibits Students From Dating In Order To Prevent Teenage Pregnancy

Golden Heritage Polytechnic College in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines, has instituted a “true love waits” policy that forbids students from having romantic relationships with people of the opposite sex while they are enrolled. As ABS-CBN news explains, this is to prevent teen pregnancies so more students can finish their education.

According to a big yellow banner hanging outside the school, “[a] love affair will surely destroy the life of a young lady student therefore this institution prohibit intimate relationship between a male & female students.” Bonus: It’s also printed on teacher’s uniforms.

It’s unclear if this rule specifically targets female students or if it’s universally enforced, though the phrasing here would suggest it’s just the “young lady students” who are considered at risk. It’s also unclear if this applies just to relationships between students or any romantic relationship a student has, even if it’s with someone outside the college.
