Lds dating ideas
In all the excitement of being engaged and planning your wedding, you probably didn’t give much thought to how your daily post-wedding life was going to be.
As a son or daughter of God, you have a right to be respected, as well as respect those you date.
A good question to ask yourself when contemplating a possible date is to ask yourself if the person lives gospel standards.
Do not date someone you know will tempt you to compromise your standards or your virtue.
