Looking for some old fashioned advice about dating? Here is an option for you from the early 1960s. I found this in a university library which is probably the most appropriate place for this material.
Considering it is the early 1960s and geared to Christian teens, you can probably guess how the advice goes:
- Don’t date someone who isn’t a Christian
- Save your sexual purity for marriage
- Don’t go out to clubs, movies, and do other “non-Christian” activities
- Listen to your parents
It is important to remember that getting pregnant out of wedlock was pretty much the worst thing that could happen to a woman. You could get fired from a job, kicked out of school, shunned by family or shipped off to an “unwed mothers” home. Hence, these books were really about putting the literal fear of God in teenagers.
