Default Retrieving Field Names

I want to perform some validation before a user submits a form. Is there any way for me to check each field to see if it's been filled in by the user. Right now, I have to manually add these to my script. I thought maybe I could use javascript to scroll through all fields to see if they'd been filled in or not. Here is my current code below. In my example you see that I have two if statements, one for each field on my form. What if I had 10 or 20 fields on my form. Assuming they are all required fields, rather than keying in 10 or 20 if statements, can I scroll through the fields instead? Thanks

function validateForm(theForm) {
    if (!validRequired(theForm.begindate,"Begin Date"))
        return false;
    if (!validRequired(theForm.enddate,"End Date"))
        return false;
    return true;

function validRequired(formField,fieldLabel) {
    var result = true;

    if (formField.value == "")
        alert('Please enter a value for the "' + fieldLabel +'" field.');
        result = false;
    return result;
