No attack on you, just on the silliness of absolute policies...
>>From the Explorer Youth Protection Guidelines:
>"Any boyfriend-girlfriend relationship between post adult leadership and
>Explorers is contrary to the policies of the BSA and will require the adult
>leader to resign."
So, according to the BSA, that 21 year old who just aged out of Exploring
and now wishes to serve as an advisor to the post for which he worked
several years must give up his 20 year old girlfriend or quit the post.
Sometimes it is better to use commonsense rather than make hard and fast
rules to cover everything.
