At first glance I thought that your approach was a bit over the top. After reading again more carefully, all I can say is what a brilliant attitude and approach, well done. Star for you

Come on, it's like you we're never young. Sex is a good thing, not bad.
I had a relationship that was killed because we couldn't have sex when I was a teenager, we always had to hide, has if we did something bad.
I feel pretty sure all of you that are against it can't even talk to your kids openly about sex and how to be safe while doing it. I know it's hard, but a lot of things in parenting are.
Refusing your teen to have sex can really mess up their life, their emotions and their psychology.
And don't you come to me saying stupid things like : "Teenager's love life are not worth has much then adult's." ,
because love is has real to anyone, anywhere, any age. Whenever someone around me makes fun of teen love, even a stranger, I openly bring them back to reality. You can't judge love.
People before the 20th century mostly married in their teen years, now don't you go saying they never felt love excluding arranged marriage that never worked and only stayed together because of religion.
If your 15 year old daughter is having sex...well even with all the protection and chemical contraceptives in the world...you might want to consider this prepping time. Cases of pregnancies arising out of sex where all the protection that was offered is not unheard of...matter of fact it's pretty common...so if your thinking that these are sure safe guards for teenagers to experiment with sexual partners and do it without worry....you are mistaken!..
You make a good point...this is not the 1950's. I don't have to think very long to what the divorce rate was then and what it is now...a nice jump in families falling apart these days.
Condoms + injections + spermacide = less than a 0.00001% chance of pregnancy.
I'm sorry but you're just deluded if you think that people where happier back then and marriages where more stable. More like divorced women had a huge social stigma attached to them, as well as issues surrounding women being able to support themselves and their kids. To the point where battered women and wives that knew their husbands were sleeping around wouldn't dare say a word because they knew that society would shun them. Sure people break up way too easily now days, but lets not pretend people used to stay together because it was actually the right thing to do.

You know what is amazing? It seems like parents were almost never children or something. Like, once a certain age is reached all the mischievous stuff you did as a teen is blocked or erased entirely and they adopt the "parental" persona. Teens have sex. Teens had sex when you were a teen OP. Teens will have sex when your current teens are parents and wondering if they should allow their kids to have sex in their homes. It is cyclic and never ending.
Now, on to actually commenting on the topic at hand? Yes, let them have sex in the home, as long as parental consent of ALL parties (ie. all the parents) is in the positive. And drinking too.
