The purpose of dating should not be considered merely a pre-marriage ritual designed to prepare one for marriage, but instead (1) to develop wholesome interactions with the opposite sex in contrast to the world's dating games, totally mired in the lures of temptation and emotion described by James -15; (2) to help individuals to see their own strengths and weaknesses, gradually understanding themselves; (3) to develop practice in serving others, and (4) to discover the person one will marry.

In the last year or so, we have had a lot of questions about this subject—so many questions that I thought it was important to speak on it.
This subject directly affects my family, and has directly, or is directly, affecting anyone that is at least 16 years old. Please do not tune out if you think it is not directed to you because there are principles in it we can all learn from.
