This tradition is a test period can leats from 18 months to 2 years. Then, they have to decide if they stay or leave the Amish community. It’s the decision of their life. In general, people love their Amish life and don’t want to leave it. But when they leave it, it is because they plan for their future and future family. Even if they like their simple life they have to leave because of their plan.
