Does anyone really have a chaperone when out with the opposite sex?

    Two weeks after my 18th birthday my mother arranged for me to marry a new JW. In the next five weeks we had two dates that my mother arranged as well. One was with a group of JWs to go roller-skating and the other was a movie and my younger brother was sent to chaperone us. Then we married. I need a head shake not just an eye-roll at this point

    That was back in 1970

    I did about 95% of the time. At the same time, most of that was just a parent in the other room while we were in the living room watching television or something. We actually tried to follow the rules at that time, and to be honest I think they can be good guidelines. I just do not believe they need to be that strict. Personally, I do not see anything wrong with sex before marriage. I do however see something wrong with treating your bodies as toys to go from one partner to another with no care or concern for one another.
