Many young women upon reaching twenty-one will serve missions.
Despite the postponing effect of missions on dating activities, LDS men tend to marry at an age younger than national averages, while LDS women marry at about the norm.
During the 1970s the age of sixteen took on special significance in this regard when Spencer W.
Kimball, as President of the Church, said: "When you get in the teen years, your social associations should still be a general acquaintance with both boys and girls.
"Young men and women, not yet ready for marriage, should be friends with many others, but they should not engage in courting .
Friendship, not courtship, should be the relationship of teenagers .
Serious, steady dating and marriage-oriented courtship are expected to be delayed longer, perhaps until after a mission for males and after completing high school for females.
