    Amish Wife

    I just went to a farmer’s market and observed three lovely Amish ladies with their parents. It reminded me of my desire to marry an Amish woman. As far as I can see the Amish and similar secs, are the only one’s to still raise Proverbs 31 women. I am not Amish, and don’t really want to become one. I am into computers and technology, and I just want to have a help-mate and partner that can keep a house and raise kids the right way. Is there anyway to court such an Amish young lady or is that dream just impossible?

    How do the Amish feel about Public display of affection

    How do the Amish feel about PDA? I ask this cause i heard that Public display of affection is not allowed. But one time i went with a friend, to a Amish farm that was selling vegetables. A English pulled up, and the three Amish boys ran up to the truck, and the youngest jump into one the of the English guys arms and he carried the youngest boy a bit, when we where shopping. I think the real question is are the Amish this close to there English friends or is it just this one family.

      Generally Amish don’t do a lot of PDA, especially adult married couples, if you’re talking about romantic affection.

      But with young children, it’s a bit more likely you’ll see shows of affection. When I visit my Amish friends with younger children, the little guys often want to be picked up and carried. And Amish will more likely be that way with younger children in particular (toddlers/babies). It’s not so much that PDA is “not allowed”, it’s more about what is common to the culture.

    Comment on jello? (July 24th, 2018 at 07:18)


    A few years ago we traveled to Kentucky to visit friends. When there, we went to a local Amish grocery store, and as I looked around I was rather surprised to come upon a large section of the store that was FILLED with DOZENS of clear bags of colored powder…resembling jello. The entire back of the store had shelves to the ceiling with big bags of every color powder. I never asked anyone what it was, but was always curious. I thought maybe it was just that storekeeper’s choice, but then, last year, we happened upon another store run by Amish in MA and there, again, lining the shelves, were several clear bags of colored powder.
    Might you help me to understand what this is….and If it’s Jello, why?
    Thankyou so much.

    What do the Amish think about having family pictures, I’m studying the 2nd commandment in the KJB and I am curious of the Amish’s opinion/view.
