Notice the huge number of child molesting teachers in the news? I suppose that's because teachers aren't allowed to marry?

Several years ago, one of my patients brought in her teacher's contract from the early 1920s. Her employer, the government school, told her and made it part of her contract, that she was not permitted to date. If she were caught doing so, she would be fired. That part of the contract later changed, but I doubt that, before it did, it bred a bunch of GLSEN types.

Both of my Paternal Grandparents were school teachers. I do not know the rules about dating but she was not allowed to be married and teach. She had to leave her job when she married my Grandfather. I suspect the reason it did not a negative effect is the fact someone would never think of such a thing. And they knew everyone in society would turn on them. But consider our society today, look at the sycophants cheering Michael Jackson every day. You would think they would at least shut their mouths for prudence sake.

See my comment to Mark, above.

My (no doubt limited) understanding tells me that in those days, "dating" was more or less a risque behavior.
