“ (Ensign, June 2006) I remember when Elder Oaks gave this talk, I was single at the time and was very aware of that attitude.
So, how well do they know, and follow, these standards?
The question isn’t whether they are forming relationships, they are.
The funny thing about this, is that in my experience, many youth don’t date much anymore. Whenever we talked about it, their eyes lit up and I had their total attention and I consistently felt a great need to bring this back into the lives of our youth. Formerly, a STANDARD was a military object (like a flag or an ensign) carried atop a pole. If a youth chooses not to raise that standard, they run the risk of defeat.
I taught at three different high school seminaries in Salt Lake and I noticed that different schools had different dating cultures; but by in large “dates” were for school dances, and not regular weekend activities. In this article are some questions that can help spur conversation about the standards in the For the Strength of Youth pamphlet, which I believe will help encourage proper dating. Dating is one of the standards that the youth must raise.
