Scarcity was a common theme, and this mindset may have impacted dating life in this decade as well.

The family and the local community held authority.

The brutal experience of World War I prompted a generation of American men and woman to ponder new ways to live their lives. The changes in societal attitudes would be most profound among young women, who challenged the restrictions that had been placed on their behavior by 19 th century Victorianism. One of the emerging revolutions that exploded into the mainstream during the Prohibition era was dating by single young men and women without an adult chaperone or escort. Two constitutional amendments following the war played important roles in this revolution. The first was the 18th Amendment, which prohibited the making, transporting and selling of alcoholic beverages.
