Location: McCarthy Hall McShain Lounge Map

Dating is complicated enough, but elements relating to personal faith, religious traditions, or family expectations can add even more complexity. This event provided a space for dialogue to explore the complexities young women and men face when dating and seeking potential spouses.

Crystal Corman and Melody Fox Ahmed started the dialogue with topics such as screening for religion via online dating sites, dating across religious traditions, and how religious values affect intimacy. Participants were encouraged to share their own perspectives and consider how religion influences dating and marriage patterns within a globalized world. 

This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, 
Campus Ministry, GU Women's Center, Women and Faith Conversation series, and the World Faiths Development Dialogue.
