Did you know that the Amish have virtually a zero percent divorce rate?
The Amish believe that their marriage vows are a promise made to God, not to another person. The vow is taken as seriously as a baptism vow. Such a perspective certainly ratchets up the importance of that commitment!
A recent story in a newspaper sounded deliciously Amish. The reporter met with a ninety-two-year old woman and her ninety-four-year-old husband. This elderly couple had been married for almost seventy years. “Whats the secret to your marriage’s longevity?”
The couple looked at each other for a long moment. Then the wife spoke: “Eh, neither of us died.”
