Teen cultures and dating
also, in my parent's generation, marriages were ARRANGED not LOVE.my parents are still together, and though i find the whole arranged marriage thing COMPLETELY ridiculous, i love my parents and i want them to stay together. even nowadays...yeah One of the most notable similarities in belief, tradition, and culture between African countries and Asian countries is the focus on the family and the ancestors.So on Sunday evening at the same house where church service was held earlier in the day, after the adults have left, Amish kids meet for Sunday night singing.The Sunday night singing is not meant for devotion.The songs of worship are faster and more energetic than the slowly chanted songs of the morning church service.The boys and girls sit at a long table facing each other.
Disclaimer: Of course we're talking in a general sense, and etiquette still vary across cultures.
In the outside world teenagers mix with the opposite sex on a daily basis during high school.
Many go on to college or tech school where they can dip into a large pool of likely dating candidates. Customs differ The Amish, like we outsiders, are not a monolithic society.
The Amish socialize at functions like visits, frolics, and church.
Since everyone goes to Church every other week, it is makes sense for the older kids to stay late to mix and match.
