Divorce is not sanctioned in the Amish church, though may occur in rare cases. Separations, however, do occasionally occur among Amish.
Amish do not remarry so long as their previous partner is alive.
However, Amish do frequently remarry in the case of a partner’s death. In order to support themselves, Amish widows may take on work outside of the home or may receive financial assistance from church and family.
Hurst and Mc Connell describe a gender imbalance between widows and widowers in the Holmes County, Ohio Amish community.
This is rooted in the fact that men die earlier, and that men are more likely to remarry.
Interestingly, Hurst and Mc Connell note that courtship which occurs when one of the partners has been widowed tends to be very private.
