The Amish embrace a life of simplicity away from the modern world. Living a life of seclusion means they don’t have access to a lot of things we’re all used to; like televisions, restaurants, and shopping malls. With a lifestyle that’s centered around the Bible and their faith, the Amish have many rules that may surprise you, and a lot of them have to do with the women in their communities. In this article, we’ll show you the things Amish women could never get away with, like getting dressed up in fancy clothes, going to college, surfing the Internet, and more. Here are 5 things you can do that Amish women can’t.
1. Take A Selfie
If you’re like most people, you probably take a few photos to post on your social media accounts. Many people also have the walls of their homes covered in family portraits, too. It’s pretty normal to walk into someone’s house and see their pictures all over the place.
Well, in the Amish world, you’ll probably never catch an adult woman posing for pictures. It’s not that they aren’t photogenic, they just live their lives by different rules. Once they become baptized into the church during their teenage years, they’re expected to live their lives by all of their faith’s traditional rules.
