Amish custom is to, at the age of 18, I believe, allow your child to go out for two years. This two year period is when they do all the stuff they haven't been able to do for the past 18, and won't do if they return to the Amish life. Drugs, crime, sex, gambling, it's all in there. After the two years, they either return to their families and the Amish way of life, or not. If not, they are as good as dead to their families. It's very harsh.
So I am not surprised.
