Fall and winter Amish will marry during these seasons not because it is a requirement of their faith, but rather as a matter of practicality. Although not every Amish family owns a farm as their livelihood they are still a farming based community. Fall and winter are the most practical seasons in which to marry because the arrangements and the stresses on the new couple to set up their own home do not conflict with the work associated with Spring planting and Summer harvest.

I am in love with someone who is Amish and hes not suppose to see anyone outside the community he is scared and wants me to walk away what should I do?

Love is sacrificial, love is love. If you truly love him, you will do the best for him. Do you want to marry? That's what people in love usually should do. Respect his religion and do not get him in trouble. If you want to marry him maybe you should turn Amish too. You cannot become Amish. He would have to leave the Amish community and live in the "English" community. Being Amish is not like being a Catholic who then joins the Jewish faith of their beloved.
