Her husband’s childhood, on the other hand, was a much different experience to Jonna’s. David grew up in the Amish community. This hardline Swiss-German religious sect favors plain living and eschews modern technology. However, his wife writes on her blog that David has become “well adjusted to his new ‘English’ lifestyle.” Despite this, Jonna found enough amusement in the Amish quirks David has retained to write a blogpost about them on The Blunt Blog. The piece was entitled, “You can take a Man out of the Amish but…”
And the blog is also home to much of Jonna’s musings on her married life with David. Jonna is a housewife and stay-at-home mom, but still finds time to maintain an online presence. David works at a nearby RV dealership and the hours are long. Jonna concedes that her husband works very hard and says that he is often returns home later than he had planned. Jonna has admitted that this, sadly, leaves her feeling isolated and conflicted.
In December 2015, she told her blog readers all about it. She wrote, “I’m married to a hard-working man and I would be lying if I said that it didn’t take a toll on me. Sometimes he will come home after a long day at work and I’ll be waiting for him to walk in the door, so I can yell ‘you promised me you would be home at five!’ As if he would rather be working than spending time with me and our daughter.”
