Dating age for mormons
You can understand those rules and still have no idea what your teenage Mormon friend is thinking.
I want to explain a Mormon belief that is central to our beliefs that is responsible for just about every dating decision we make. Eternal marriage means that Mormons believe that if we are married with proper Priesthood authority (in a Mormon temple) then God will honor our marriage not just on earth, but also after we die and are in Heaven.
Here, young people participate, usually once a week, in gender-segregated activities designed with an adult adviser for their particular age group.
Occasionally, joint activities are planned that include boys and girls together.
So the whole point of the rules above are to help Mormons to keep from disobeying God’s commandments about morality and sex, so that when they decide to marry later on in life, they can marry for eternity.
