Courtship instead of dating
The Weinerts’ courting relationship is the kind of relationship that I want my daughter to have with her future husband. They never slept in the same house before they were married.
If a teen in junior high or high school is allowed to date, this pattern of making inappropriate emotional bonds — and, even, unfortunately, physical bonds — will be repeated a number of times before they reach a marriageable age.
Until now, I’ve only told her that she couldn’t date until she was done with high school — and, afterwards, not to rush into dating.
