  • @armywife43, my hubby says the same thing about our daughters not being able to date til they're married LOL.

    id say 17, maybe 16. hubbs would probably suggest the "date" be in our home watching a movie or something lol. poor girls!

  • well, my husband has declared dd can't date until she's married. ds can't date until he's 16.eye rolling they're only 2 and 3, so we'll end up having a serious talk about THAT later lol

  • At 14 I would start letting them go on "group dates" where there are 2 or more couples and they meet at the place (movie theater, bowling alley, etc.). But 16 for a "car date".

  • My son went on a double date at 13. I keep telling my kids they don't need to go on dates just yet. When we were this age we went out in big groups, which is what I have told my kids they should do. I think when they are freshmen in high school I will start letting them date. I started dating my freshman year.
