The spread of modern contraception changed the sexual behavior and as a result the family planning is realized in new conditions in the last 50 years. The regulation of sexual behavior and its evolution grows on approach of biological evolutionism. The female behavior, family planning tools, conception, and birth control has changed. All of these can greatly affect or impair the mental and physical health of women. In our study we asked the opinion of students (18 year and older) (n=259), and teachers (n=98), about family planning, childbearing plans and religion practice. Our questions were adressed to the fact what do they think about the growuing number of childless couple today. Artificial insemination is a new opportunity in Romania of family and child - taking. Interested us that this can be provided by health insurance and how much agreed solution is among the examined group. Comparing the results we received several new information. It became obvious to us that the adult young people` s need to marry is big but appears the possibility of independence and the rationship too. We experienced as a contradiction that the positive approach and the child –taking approach don`tresult the natural reproduction of population, because the planned number of children is maximum two in a case of a pair. We examined the relation between religious identity and acceptance of artificial insemination. The results show that there are differences between the different types of schools and with different cultures and it depends from health knowledge and awareness. Students believe that happy life and relationship don’t exist without children.
