Amish courting practices are based on the belief that there is only one right mate for each person. Marriages are made in heaven so divorce in not a possibility. Can you imagine taking your wedding vows and having said those life changing words “Till death do us part” its permanent and nothing can ever change it? Thus, one had better choose well and with the sincere prayer to know God's will.
Now, I am not going to debate the issue or the sanctity of marriage. However, I believe that marriage is a commitment and covenant between a man, a woman and God. Neither of the couple should believe that marriage is just a piece of paper or a contract. Unfortunately, many of us English feel that way.
The Amish find us odd with divorce. I am a divorcee that has found my bookend and remarried for a second it. I have stated that to my Amish friends when we have talked about family. Many of them have noticed that my children look like me and not my wife. So, I explain to clear up the confusion. It doesn’t bother me to answer them.
We will continue “The Courting Process” on the next Blog.
