No, this has nothing to do with eternal dating. “Dating and the Eternal Perspective” is the latest in a string of Ensign articles for young single adults. This one contrasts the world’s ways with the Lord’s ways when it comes to attitudes and behaviors related to dating, courtship, and marriage. It contains a remarkable number of quotes from General Authorities on these subjects, as well as personal stories from young adults who have had a variety of experiences in the dating arena. Here’s a statement I find to be true: “Humility will help us accept the Lord’s timetable when the opportunity for marriage comes sooner, as well as later, than anticipated.” (For me, it was sooner.) This article has much to recommend it, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s being recommended by many singles ward bishops right now.
