Why age limits?


Moksha

Recommended Posts

Age divisions on this Earth are arbitrary. Aren't we all Eternal Beings? If so, then why does age matter so much?

Having said that, I am trying (as I struggle to find a way to repent and return to the Church) to obey whatever our leaders tell us to do. So, I attend meetings for us "older" people.

Just for information: From The Case Against Adolescence by Robert Epstein: "...Mary Onesi...and her husband of just over eighty years were interviewed by the Associated Press in 1998. They had been honored on World Marriage Day in 1995 as the longest-married couple in America.... She married her husband Paul in 1917 when he was twenty-one and she was thirteen. By all accounts their marriage was happy and successful, and it was certainly prolific."

I asked the same question in our priesthood meeting when we were discussing about the relativly small size of our branch. Everyone pretty much responded that it keeps conversations and helps everyone by relateing to our age. Like for example.. Problems that a 20 year old is going to be much different then someone who is 50. And I also thinks it makes it much easier to bond with our other members because I find it easier to talk to someone my own age then talking to older members many of the times.

Not entirely sure this is accurate. You focus on problems but what about interests? I have several female friends in their early 20s and one of my best friends is about 27. The 27 year old as well as one of the younger ones know my wife and there is no "appearances of evil" taking place but the 27 year old has on many, many occasions mentioned that we work extremely well together and have a great time together and the other has mentioned many times being on the same "wavelenth". Now I am nearly twice their age but in relations to common interests, favorite passtimes as well as outlook on life there is no division due to age.

I will note that none of these women are LDS. And in a normal LDS social network there is little liklihood we would have met one another. I can imagine that if I were single and LDS (and had the social network I do today) I would consider dating any number of twenty-something friends I have. So here is where I see the absolute definciency of the current social system set up for LDS people. There MUST be plenty of single LDS men and women who would prefer to meet LDS people for dating and eventual marriage but are divided by arbitrary age limits and wind up dating and marrying people who are non-LDS and also fall into different age categories since people often meet in places like work for instance.

If we got rid of the current system and some 20-something did not want to get to know people older then fine, nobody would be forcing anyone into relationships. Yet there are plenty of people with age differences who can and would hit it off and get married and since it happens in the real world why is it so bad if it happens in the LDS world?
