but that was the fun casual playdates and such that the mother's set up...
my sister was told she cant date until shes 16 and she really liked this guy so she still went ahead and dated him without telling my parents.
Therefore, I think it’s safe to say that this is the defining purpose of dating: to find someone to marry.
It is because of this that I really believe that a person should begin dating only when he or she is at an age and stage in life when marriage is a realistic possibility.
I knew exactly where she was, but I had left it up to her when to finally come home. I prefer to have them learn to be accountable and responsible and the best way to do that is to give them responsibility, trust them, and stay close to them.
RANDY: You will notice, Brenda, that we haven't put the stamp of approval on sixteen as the “magic number” for dating.
