Lesser drama is a dating life saver.
Five great questions of life: Life * Love * Learning * Labor * Leadership
Why Creating a Lesser Drama is a Dating Life Saver
By Evan Nehring
People object to dating rules. I understand. The legalism that comes with “do this” and “don’t do that” really goes against the grain with the man on the street. I like the self-discipline of creating rules for our own relationships. It creates a lesser drama. Do you know what I mean?
Big drama is dangerous or life-altering. Big drama is jail time. Big drama is unwanted pregnancy and STD’s. Big drama is scandal. Big drama includes the sins of fornication and adultery.

Holiness is ridiculous to the unbeliever. I could argue that the lesser drama is beneficial outside of the church, but instead the moral standard is usually summed up by, “Don’t get caught.”
I’ve already made my case for why bases two through four should be for married people. The lesser drama is just another tool to keep it so. Go ahead, talk with your girlfriend or boyfriend about purity rules that will keep you out of the big drama.
