I've heard way too many stories of people breaking up with amazing people and they end up alone or in a less happy relationship. Hence, ensure that the girl or guy you want to date is above 16; although with changing times, some kids may date younger, if your love interest is not keen on going out until 16, then hold off.
I married a recent convert girl в she may as well have been a nonmember в and less than a year later we got an annulment.
Their marriage falls apart because they are both working way too many hours, and they lose their way in life. I'm a Mormon girl in love with an amazing non-Mormon man.
