Unfortunately, it appears to be a developing pattern with young adults to have an aversion toward any type of boundaries within their relationships. I've seen first-hand the fallout when young adults lack boundaries in their relationships.
If I've done my job well during their primary years, the foundation is formed and they're beginning to build upon it.Once we removed the Bible as the basis and/or standard of our conduct, we were left with the shifting sands of man's own wisdom. Senate prayer when he said, "...unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything." As a result, our young people of today embrace a worldview that is more secular than biblical and more me-centered than God-centered.In the process, we’ve lost our True North (God's Truth). This equates to a philosophy of life that looks to oneself or the “norms” of society to define what is acceptable and what is not-acceptable.As a dad, we need to actively engage our sons and daughters around this topic and provide them a functioning model of what this looks like.If we don't, the culture around them will set the tone.I realize that every young girl out there may not have a dad that will be there for her.
In that case, both the mother and daughter should look to pull in a man that can speak into the assessment of the young male suitor.
Notice I did not say what is “right or wrong,” as the principles of right and wrong are no longer valid without absolute morals to establish their foundational basis, and our children get this point all too well.
Our youth’s views on dating have just followed this same pathway.
There is a reason within a marriage ceremony that the father is the one that "gives the bride away." God designed it this way.
As my 20 year-old daughter understands, no man on this earth knows her and loves her more than I do.
Boundaries are absolutely necessary within every relationship–especially when it comes to men and women.
