Most individuals in this day and age prefer one night stands and short flings to long term relationships. However this is quite the opposite when it comes to people from the Coastal region more specifically ladies.

 A large percentage of young women from Mombasa who are in the perfect age bracket suitable for courtship that could lead to marriage had these to say when asked to comment on the topic.

“I believe that moral values especially those pertaining sex should be upheld that is why I would rather be in a relationship that has the potential to become something fruitful in the future,” said Zainab.

"Short term relationships are a waste of time. I just don’t want a man who will mess around with my feelings and leave or a person just to fool around with,” said Clara.

“My religion clearly teaches on the importance of the institution of marriage especially to ladies. As a good Muslim woman, I have to respect these teachings and preserve myself for my husband,” commented Aisha.

“I was raised with the concept that a woman should preserve her body. Currently, a person can hardly be in a relationship without engaging in sexual intercourse. So the more flings I have, the more men I sleep with,” said Kadzo.
