My dad was Amish, his side of the family is all 'liberal' Amish
(they speak English, etc., unlike conservative Amish).

Until you are baptized (around 16 yo) in the Amish church, most
folks won't say much to you about how you act.  My understanding
is, these days, there's a lot of young people leaving the church
as they get a taste of "Yankee" life (non-Amish were referred to
as "Yankees" in the part of Ohio where I grew up and where my
dad's family lives.)
