@Kacey23:  Our church was very strict with dating! D:

We weren’t allowed to date (they wouldn’t let us serve or be an active part of the church) if we were not going to get engaged very soon.

They usually talked about dating, but most of the time they didn’t. I guess it is the other extreme. And I think they are both wrong.

I believe we should preach the Word and that will renew our minds to live our relationships they way God wants us to.

Our church doesn’t have a young adults ministry 🙁 They have youth, and then things for older people, but there aren’t very many people in the in-between stage, and very fe datng/engaed/married young couples without children. Other churches I have been to definitely overdo the dating relationships though. I think the church tends to obsess far too much about it.

@Kacey23:  Our church used to be very strict on relationships, but by God’s grace we’ve come a long way (even since I was in high school). A big distinction made was the difference between a command and a preference. Instead of, like others wrote, harsh rules along the lines of “no eye contact with the opposite sex after 10pm” and “no touching until engaged”… it is now more “here’s what the Bible says is wrong, here’s what we’ve see being harmful, here’s what we see as beneficial… but the rest is between you and your significant other and God.”

Good luck getting through this season!
