‘Breaking Amish’ Stars Abe & Rebecca Moving Back To Pennsylvania’s Amish Country
Abe and Rebecca, the married stars of Breaking Amish, have decided to leave Florida and settle down in the Amish country of Pennsylvania that they once fled – though they won’t be returning to the Amish lifestyle.
The young couple announced the shocking decision during the Breaking Amish: Brave New World finale, throwing Abe’s mother Mary through a loop. Mary had made the difficult decision to uproot from her Amish community to join Abe in Florida, and isn’t eager to face the cold welcome she’d receive upon returning.
"I have a lot of concerns about going home, because I know I’m definitely going to be shunned," Mary said. When she suggested that Abe was moving at Rebecca’s insistence, her son replied, "I am married now, I have a family. It’s time for you to let me go, mom.” A much-chagrined Mary observed, "It sounds like you’re throwing me to the lions.”
Despite her wariness, Mary ultimately moved back with her son and daughter-in-law to Pennsylvania, where the pair has purchased a home. But just because Mary relocated, doesn’t mean the drama is over between the newlyweds and Abe’s family. During TLC’s The Shunning Truth specials, Abe’s brother Andrew comes on to vent his misgivings, leading Abe to pull Rebecca off the set with him.
The next The Shunning Truth will next Sunday on TLC at 10/9c, followed by another on Sunday, July 14. Breaking Amish: LA, which will feature a new cast of Amish kids, will premiere on TLC Sunday, July 21.
