One of the main social events young Amish men and women enjoy is the Sunday evening singings. These singings can include Amish teens from many districts far and wide, and the events are adult-supervised.The parents who live on the property and the ones who’ve come to help out will stay seated during the singing until the good-bye song begins. It’s a great way to fellowship and to have romance spark between young people.If they enjoy each other’s company, he will begin picking her up and taking her home from future gatherings.If either of them has siblings who are married, they’ll visit that couple while dating/courting.For generations the parents have had traditions in place to help the next generation find their mate.As important as this decision is, the parents aim to keep their opinions out of the mix and trust God to direct their adult children’s steps…as long as the prospective mate is from an Amish household.They usually spent the first several months of married life visiting the homes of folks who came to their wedding.
the amish women are much more serious, about meeting a good man for them.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought a post about how the Amish find a spouse would be a nice topic.
Amish typically get married around twenty to twenty-two years of age, but how did they find romance inside their conservative culture?
When there is a multi-district Amish event, a young woman doesn’t need to wonder if a man is married, or try to get close enough to spot a ring. With great anticipation, the bride and groom’s family hopes the couple will be expecting by the following wedding season. Only comments left on this post on my website will be entered into the giveaway.
In today's world, it's a common site to see hoards of people unable to go outside without having at least one device on them but in the Amish world, this type of scene will most likely never be encountered. The group will then hang around for an hour or two after singing with the unattached boys and girls sizing each other up as likely partners. Over time, any group of people will likely adapt to the changing world around them but the Amish hold tight their religious faiths and believe and tend to be strong enough as a people to distance themselves from intrusive technology but they don't all shun it completely.
