Chapter 5!(:

It is important to people that if they start to have “stirrings” that they tell there parent and that parent will give them “the pill.” “Stirrings” is basically the emotion of love that you feel deep down in your stomach. Jonas starts to feel this feeling, it comes to him in a dream and he tells his dream to his parents and they give him “the pill.”Once you start the pill you are on it for the rest of your life.
This means that they can’t have a girlfriend/boyfriend when they are young, but when you get old enough they can have a husband/wife, but they are assigned to you, you also can’t feel any emotion for that person what so ever. Even when you are a parent in this community you still have to take the pill so you don’t grow any attachment to the other parent.
