Where a newlywed couple resides depends on the Opportunity to continue farming in the traditional manner.

This may mean working in a factory until enough savings have been accumulated to invest in a farm of their own.

Amish couples are expected to remain married to the mates they select as young adults.

The Amish church depends on the biological reproduction of its members rather than on acquiring new members through proselytization.

If the couple remains on the family farm, their parents may, at retirement, move to a separate house on the property and Eventually leave the management of the farm to the younger couple.
