What are Amish men not allowed to do?
to have mustache
to lead the business
to pay taxes
Unmarried Amish men shave their faces, while married ones wear beards. What is interesting, the mustaches are not tolerated. For centuries the wearing of mustaches by soldiers was a requirement in many armies, and pacifist Amish wanted to distance themselves from militaristic culture.
