Young 'are more promiscuous'

young people are more promiscuous than their parents were, a survey has found.

Under 25-year-olds will have a third more relationships and twice as many sexual partners before they get married, compared to the older generation.

The research found that young people expect to change jobs at least 10 times in their lifetimes and most do not expect to find a life partner. They also have more friends than their parent's generation, but fewer life-long friendships.
