The principal reason for this rule was to insure a "marriage in the Lord," that is, the union of two young people who were members of the church. Anyone who disregarded the rule was subject to church censure. Even such groups as permitted the young people to make their own promise of marriage required them to obtain the consent of their parents.
Such practices have now almost universally disappeared in America in favor of the personal proposal by the young man to the chosen one. The change has been due to the general adoption of the American concept of romantic love as the basis for marriage.
Among certain of the more conservative groups in Europe, however, the parents still in fact have a large share in selecting a marriage partner. Among the Mennonites of Prussia it was customary into the 19th century for the young man to approach the Umbitter , a sort of deacon, who would consult with the parents and the daughter of the house making known the young man's desire. After they had consented the young man would come to the home of the girl and the engagement took place.
Daniel Chodowiecki's painting "Mennonite Proposal for Marriage" illustrates this. After some visiting among relatives the wedding would take place, usually in two weeks after the engagement. This practice must have been of Dutch Mennonite background and was transplanted from Prussia to Russia and America.
The conservative groups in Mexico and Paraguay still adhere to it in some modified form. With the exception of several conservative groups, in the s courtship customs among Mennonites reflect the prevailing customs in the national societies of which they are a part. In traditional rural societies in India and Africa, mate selection has been almost totally negotiated and controlled by the parents of the marrying couple, and "courtship" did not really exist. The impact of Christianity has been to shift some of the parental control over mate selection to the church and to the young couple themselves.
Under the aegis of Western missions, Western ideas of mate selection by the marrying individuals, preferably with parental approval and sponsorship, have come to prevail among the more educated members of new churches in India and Africa, among Mennonites as well as others. Urbanization and education in non-Western countries have precipitated major changes in the mate selection process, since many youth have gone to towns and cities for employment or to study in boarding schools Kauffman, These youth, living many miles from their parents in the agricultural villages, meet informally, develop a rudimentary "dating" system, and eventually fall in love and marry, with or without parental consent, and sometimes avoiding the traditional customs of bride price, betrothal rituals, and family-oriented wedding celebrations in the villages.
As a result, major tensions and disaffection develop sometimes between traditional parents and their modernized offspring. In the European context, Mennonites historically have been accustomed to considerable control by parents over the choice of spouse and marriage arrangements for a son or daughter betrothal. Recently European youth have more freedom in the choice of a spouse, and customs of dating have developed, although more slowly than in the United States.
European youth tend to go out in groups, and pair dating is not likely to begin until the late teens, or until there is serious intent to find a spouse. Among these groups, dating and boy-girl contacts, prior to engagement, have been restricted, and there is considerable distrust of a young couple out somewhere on a date by themselves.
Persons wishing to marry must have the approval of the parents and the church officials. Until recently, among the Old Order Amish "courtship was secretive, and the community at large was not informed of an intended wedding until the couple was 'published' in church, from one to four weeks before the wedding" Hostetler, , p.
Although free to choose whom they wish to marry, Amish youth had to submit to the formality of having a "Schteeklimann" a go-between, often a deacon go secretly to the girl's house to obtain her consent and the consent of her parents. While secretly courting, the Amish couple would have opportunities to meet and talk at weddings, funerals, and other gatherings.
Although the boy would not take his girl to an evening youth gathering, he could take her home in his buggy afterwards when it was dark. He would also visit her at her home, but only after her parents had gone to bed. Elsewhere there is much more openness in dating and courting, and the "Schteeklimann" function is no longer employed. The couple, having decided on marriage, and without any formal engagement, simply go to the minister and ask to initiate the marriage process in the church.
These terms connote for them romance and carnal pleasure. Although Hutterite youth "find their marriage partners voluntarily, parents have almost complete veto power over a child's choice. Until recent decades, courtship was restricted by limitations on boy-girl contacts and by rigorous parental and church control of choice of spouse.
Currently, however, the young people are adopting the courtship and dating patterns of other Mennonites and the general public, but with strong parental and churchly expectations that all behavior be in line with strict moral codes and that the chosen spouse be of the same denomination Hiebert, , p. Among the larger and less-conservative Mennonite bodies in North America, the youth tend to follow the prevailing dating and courtship customs of the general society.
Dating is a 20th-century development, particularly enhanced by the emergence of the automobile and the mushrooming of places to go -- restaurants, movies, theatre, school functions, athletic events, concerts, fairs, etc. Dating has been defined as an American invention that emerged after World War I among college students and other young adults Eshleman, Eshleman describes dating as a form of recreation, a form of socialization, a means of status grading and status achievement, and a form of courtship.
The custom of dating has considerably lengthened the courtship period, which may begin as casual dating as early as the age of 14 or 15, and permits "shopping around" until settling on a chosen spouse a number of years later. This modern form of mate selection should result in more compatible marriages, but currently high divorce rates raise serious question as to whether the romantic idealism and emotionalism associated with the courtship period is an adequate basis for successful mate selection.
In earlier times a date was almost always initiated by the boy, with the girl having the option of accepting or refusing. More recently, with the emphasis on gender equality, the girl may sometimes take the initiative in asking, although it appears that many are reluctant to do so. In recent decades dating has become more informal, especially on college campuses, and many youth prefer to think of themselves as merely "going out together," without all the formalities of prior arrangements, dress-up, and other niceties associated with dating.
Americans have gone farther than others in promoting individual choice of spouses based on the concepts of romantic love, and parental influence on the choice of spouse has all but disappeared. Thus dating, as a means of compatibility testing, has become all the more important. Whereas in Europe and America preth-century customs discouraged boy-girl contacts before marriage, and in Latin America chaperonage is still insisted upon, current American and Canadian youth are free to associate unchaperoned over a period of many years before marriage, strongly increasing the possibilities of sexual involvement and premarital pregnancies.
Mennonite youth in North American sanctions typically follow a generally larger and less conservative belief on dating. An example of this is present when Nomi explains how she met her boyfriend Travis:.
We all shrugged, non-committal, flipped out hair bored to death. Enh, said Janine, the verbal one. After sharing the joint me and Travis started a conversation and the other people went over to the fire. Nomi met Travis without her parents, and in a nontraditional way. Modern Mennonites are also more open to the use of modern technologies, and how far this use goes depends on the individual.
Many Mennonites turn to dating sites to connect with other people from around the world. The openness of this decision is described in an online article that states:. Mennonites do not have to marry within their denomination, so they are more open to finding Mennonite online dating sites. Dating without the faith is not forbidden though some churches may discourage it. However, as long as you date a Christian there is little chance of problems from church elders.
Singles Mennonite Free. With singleness gaining popularity due to its strange appeal, individual Mennonites sometimes choose to live a single life. However, the percentage of Mennonites who are single is somewhat smaller than the population at-large. Efforts are being made to help single Mennonites more active in the community:.
Programs for singles are developing in Mennonite denominations. Activities include single young adult Sunday school classes, ad hoc regional organizations for young adult singles, conference-sponsored activities for young singles, support groups and retreats for divorced and widowed persons, support groups for single parents, and the publication by church wide agencies of printed resources in singles ministry.
Although many Mennonite communities allow their members to choose their own approach to romantic relationships, many still follow traditional courtship when age is reached. Whether dating or courting is chosen, one thing remains, the sole acceptance of the person and the decision of heart or mind. Bargen, Mary. Umble, John S. Howard Kauffman. Skip to main content.

But lucky for you, dear reader, I am not at all normal. I know, sexy, right? Well, during my first drink with Marcia the Mennonite, we got to talking about Costco—because I know how to sweet talk a lady—and she had recently bought tires there. You know, your standard flirty romcom conversation. Now, when she added that a few years earlier she had a long-term relationship with a man she agreed not to kiss until they got engaged, that did give me pause.
And not a short pause, either. But what can I say? Obviously, before our next meeting, there was research to be done. After looking up lugubrious, Turns out it means sad. Who knew?! There was this…. But which ones were the real Mennonites?
The sad singing group, the background players from Witness, or the fun girls on a probably very wholesome spring break? I was intrigued enough by Marsha to try to find out, but I realized I was going to have to ask her some awkward questions.

Those who recanted from the new religion and tried to return to the Catholic Church were often not pardoned. While Mennonites and the Amish come from the same Anabaptist roots that began in the 16 th Century, the Amish became a separate group from Mennonites. The groups agree on many beliefs such as pacifism and adult baptism , but the Amish follow a stricter doctrine.
In , Swiss Anabaptist leader Jacob Ammann did not believe that banning and shunning was being practiced well enough. He felt the current church was not strict enough and he separated to create the Amish. Among the differences between the two, the Amish create their own communities isolated from the world, while Mennonites do not. Amish also hold to stricter rules: no electricity, horse and buggy transportation and plain dress. Most Mennonites, however, do not have such restrictions.
According to the Mennonite USA website, Mennonites hold a strong belief in peace, justice and nonresistance. Even more, some do not even pay the portion of taxes that is earmarked for the military. Like the split that formed the Amish, many other Mennonites have formed their own distinct group.
He was excommunicated and formed the Funkites. Together, the Mennonite World Conference includes one international association and Mennonite and Brethren in Christ churches in some 56 countries. However, Mennonites are not governed by a hierarchical structure. While the Mennonite Church USA officially views homosexuality as a sin and defines marriage between one man and one woman, many recent policies have seemed to support LGBT initiatives. It includes about congregations in New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
They are the ones that essentially have left true biblical Christianity in this respect. Core to their beliefs are many that are in line with other Christian beliefs. Mennonites also encourage the practice of foot washing.
They thus acknowledge their frequent need of cleansing, renew their willingness to let go of pride and worldly power, and offer their lives in humble service and sacrificial love. The relation typically stems from a long history of Mennonites marrying within the church and usually leads to a distant relation between long past ancestors. Because Mennonites are sometimes confused with Amish, many believe that Mennonites adhere to a strict dress code. In reality, what is worn depends on the specific Mennonite church.
Many modern Mennonite churches do not have any dress codes, even for women. However, there are some conservative sects of Mennonites that dress in a way to encourage modesty and separation from society. Women may wear dresses or head coverings. Other rules on lifestyle also vary depending on the church. There are about 40 different Mennonite groups in the U. They also allow the use of technology and secular involvement in the world.
