Question: Do Mennonites have pre arranged marriages?

Romance and marriage When it comes to the selection of a marital partner, there are no arranged marriages by the parents or other mediators. Young people who choose to be baptized into a certain Amish affiliation (typically the one they grew up in) are expected to marry inside this group.

Do Mennonites have arranged marriages?

Although Mennonite marriages are not arranged, approval between families is still sought. This approval is often met with either a matchmaker or church official acting as a mediator. One constant among various Mennonite groups is the belief that marriage is to be taken seriously as a sacred commitment made before God.
