Abstract
Information about sex, is not a taboo in a modern life like today. It is very important given to adolescents, considering entering adolescence sexual maturity has begun to develop. Hormonal function increases and causes arousal. It can not be denied that, almost in all the big cities and also in the village, the number of cases of teenagers who have sex outside of marriage. Various factors that underlie teenagers do this, among others is due to lack of attention from parents, deep curiosity, the desire to try, the influence of video / porn stories, lack of knowledge possessed of information about free sex. The tendency to have free sex in adolescence can lead to marriage at an early age. Adolescents need to be equipped with knowledge and understanding of the age of a good marriage, in accordance with the physical and mental development. The ideal age of marriage for women is over 20 years, while for men over 25 years. Marriage at an early age may increase the risk of maternal mortality, one of the reasons is that too young age during pregnancy. Based on the phenomenon, the implementation of prenuptial counseling through information and consultation services is expected to increase adolescent understanding of maturation age marriage (PUP).
