Madison is an engaged, 21-year-old with three semesters left in college. She currently has a dilemma because her parents think she should wait to get married until she graduates from college, and they also disapprove of couples living together before marriage.

Long distance relationships (aka "LDRs") aren't anything new. Almost anyone that's been in the dating game has experienced this situation at least once in their lives. But for some reason, college LDRs seem to be worthy of their own sub-category in dating.

A new study, however, challenges those assumptions—while showcasing how such behavior affects a person's perception of a woman.
To hook up. What does it mean? Turns out even though college students are the ones doing most of the hooking up, they don't quite know what it means. And a new study proves that there's a lot more talk about hooking up than people actually doing it. Surprised, anyone?
