I must disagree on the issue of pursuing romances unless married. I have found
that if married couples display affection in public during a co-ed Post
function or trip, it sets a "mood" among the others. You cannot stop hormones
once in action. It's best not to provide the catalyst.
I have noticed several times, that when an adult couple walked about, hand-in-
hand and etc...., several of the kids soon did the same. To tell them it is
not appropriate here because you are not married, is not always acceptable to
the kids. I have heard.."oh, its O K we are going steady." etc.
If you don't want the kids to display affection during Post trips, than the
adults need to keep things low key. If you don't mind the kid's display of
affection, then romance away.
