Salaam to you Sir,
As in regard to what you have mentioned in your message I tend to disagree ... '' I must say the well-known truth that, with the dating practice accepted as the norm in the West, chastity is a rare entity among men and women in the Western society. In fact, this is an ancient sorry phenomenon"....
I have lived in several part of the world and found from my own experience that the more strict the parents were the more escapades were taken by their children. My was a mixed marriage as my wife was Muslim and I was born a Christian (not by my choice), when I married I did not convert to Islam as I believe that I had no need to ..CONVERT, as since my early age I believed 100% in what is in the Quran without having it read a single page of THE BOOK.
I always gave all I could to charity, I pray very often and ask for help when ever I need to My Only GOD, I am certain that My God would had directed me as always in the right path.
I did not believe to have any sexual affair before marriage, as I consider it always that to be something special and that could have been performed only after marriage.
Therefore I am certain that even in the ... WEST a lot of people think like me, I am certain that you are well aware of the large amount of EASTERNERS spending a lot money with loose girls (I have seen enough of that). How many generations of Easterners were destroyed because of their sexual practices (as Mentioned in THE BOOKS), by our ONLY GOD.
Rest assured that dating only proves the trust the parents is giving to their children. I would not suppress my children in any way, I teach them the right and wrong and then it is up to them to follow, the choice will always be their, as it was with me.
With great respect to you,
