The Amish faith is a highly traditional Christian tradition in the Anabaptist branch of the Reformation. It is practiced almost exclusively in the United States and Canada with large settlements in PennsylvaniaOhioand Indiana. While it is true that Amish women are still expected to do the traditional maternal duties, like child-rearing, it is not unheard of for the modern Amish women to work independently in some way as well. It is not uncommon for Amish women to run their own businesses or go further in their education as girls than their male peers might.
Amish women are expected to wear long cotton dresses made out of plain fabric, it is not uncommon for a group of Amish women to buy large bulk of a certain color of fabric and make themselves identical dresses to wear. Typically the fabric is not patterned, and cooler colors like lavender and blue are preferred. All romantic relationships are expected to have marriage as the end result.
When it comes to the selection of a marital partner, there are no arranged marriages by the parents or other mediators.
Young people who choose to be baptized into a certain Amish affiliation typically the one they grew up in are expected to marry inside this group. Order No. Ann Arbor: ProQuest. The Johns Hopkins University Press. Religious tolerance. Retrieved 25, Nov, : Amish people. Namespaces Article Talk.
