  • Should I date behind my Jehovah Witnesses parents back? I am 16 in 2 weeks

    My parents are super strict and I like this guy (not in the faith) should I go and date behind their back. I was told by someone that if I don't tell them I am just setting boundaries with them. I am 15 almost 16 in 2 weeks.

    Thank you for reaching out to us here at NRS. We can understand you must be going through a stressful time and it can often make you one feel alone or without help. Our hope is that we might give you options and help give you resources so that you might be able to make an informed decision on your current situation.

    From what we gather about your story it seem like you have a big decision ahead and really would like more insight. Unfortunately we typically do not tell you what to do since our goal is to help you make a decision based on the options you have. Some options you might have are to perhaps talk with someone you trust about the situation. While the information that other people have mentioned to you it can be good set those boundaries with them. Especially if you don’t hold the same religion it can be good to set boundaries so that you can still be the person you are learning to be while not causing too much turmoil.

    Again we commend you for reaching out to us. It is difficult to feel alone or not know what to do. We hope that we have given you more resources into making a decision. If any questions or concerns arise please do not hesitate to call us at (1-800-786-2929) or online through our chat option at (

    Best Wishes-NRS
