Mormon religion and dating
Mormon religion and dating - dating someone two years younger
In my current ward we have about 400 people attending on an average Sunday.With 5 Sunday School classes, an overflowing sacrament meeting, 2 Relief Societies, and 2 Elders Quorums, it can feel like an Olympic event just to find your best friend to sit with.
All of this goes against the teachings of The Rules.If you are unsure, at least wait until you are sure of that person's character.A good question to ask yourself when contemplating a possible date is to ask yourself if the person lives gospel standards.Just two weeks ago I discovered that an old friend is in my ward.We go to different Sunday School classes and Relief Societies, and somehow, have been in the same ward for over a year, and had no idea.Do not date someone you know will tempt you to compromise your standards or your virtue.
It is better to not date then to date someone who does not respect you.Keeping the law of chastity while dating is one of the most important ways to remain worthy when preparing for a mission and/or a temple marriage.When dating do not do anything that will endanger your worthiness to serve a mission and enter the Lord's holy temple.The guideline to wait to date is inspired counsel from Latter-day prophets. Hazards exist if you date before you are emotionally and mentally able to deal with the physical feelings that come from serious relationships.When choosing someone to date, look for and date only those people who have high moral standards.Until then, choose to uphold your standards and follow the Lord's counsel while dating.
