Marriage is a commitment that two people make to share their lives and family responsibilities. Traditionally, this includes loving one another, living together, raising children, helping and supporting one another, "for better or worse."
Dating is when two or more people meet at a specific time or place for leisure. Dating enables people to experience companionship, get to know each other better, and could lead to a more intimate relationship.
A relationship is the interaction between two or more people. It varies in type, intensity, and commitment. Adolescents commonly have relationships with families, friends, and the larger society. Relationships are important because they provide companionship, support and comfort; help us to feel loved, needed and wanted; and enable us share experiences.
Healthy sexuality requires the development and use of specific personal and interpersonal skills. These skills will help a young person to identify and live according to his/her values, make effective decisions and take responsibility for them, and communicate effectively with family, friends and other members of the society.
