Nat Geo has shared a short clip of the show (I’ve posted it below), about Amish dating during “Rumspringa“. One is the Amish “elder’s” appearance for an on-camera interview (“elder” is the term National Geographic uses; I’m assuming they mean bishop or member of the ministry). In the clip, Keim speaks frankly about the consequences of premarital sex from a church standpoint, as his wife looks on.Keim is from the Garnett, Kansas Amish settlement, a small community with a long history.In the clip you’ve also got some shots of what appears to be a late-night buggy race.Or it may just be one carriage trying to pass another. I also found the discussion of bed courtship, or “bundling”, interesting.
Sunday is the day Amish youth groups gather, and when dating couples traditionally meet. National Geographic is airing a new show called “Amish at the Altar”.With that in mind the piece’s approach to this practice seems pretty appropriate to me. Unlike in Thailand where there are just a handful of reputable dating sites from which to choose, the Philippines has more high quality options than you can count. naval presence in the country, the people of the Philippines are actually quite open to dating foreigners. The method was developed by Willard Libby in the late 1940s and soon became a standard tool for archaeologists.Libby received the Nobel Prize for his work in 1960.
