    Does the Easter Star have the same rules as Freemasonry. Such as does a women have to seek the light or can one that you know meet the requirements be " recruited"?

    My lodge doesn't recruit, but the local OES Chapter (in NM) does. My mother was approached by the Worthy Matron and handed a petition.

    I married a woman who eventually became a member of the local OES chapter. When I was raised a Master Mason, I petitioned for and was accepted into that chapter. It helped somewhat that several other ladies in the Chapter went to the same church as myself, so they knew who I was.

    I second those comfy shoes. I went thru my initiation with comfy shoes, and a bum right knee (tore something behind the knee joint a few weeks previously, and I'm still limping). But I am glad the missus and I can be in OES together.

    The lady must have a bloodline to join. Either her husband or someone in her family. Every once in a while there's a dispensation given to allow for a lady to join without it.

    I also encourage Brothers to ask their wife to join. Makes for a harmonious home.

    Wife is interested in join the OES, but as long as they have the requirement that the ladies wear pantyhose she will have nothing to do with them...lol

    It may not be a strict requirement for pantyhose. A lot would be determined by the length of the dress. If the dress is long enough to still be completely cover a pair of knee-highs while she is seated then she would be okay. The lessons inculcated in the appendant groups are those of being a lady just as the lessons for the men teach them how to be gentlemen as there is a difference. She should address her questions and concerns to some of the members of OES and she might be surprised at some of the answers.

    My wife did not wear pantyhose lol. She went a little too 'stylish' and someone actually said something about her skirt length. I think as long as they comply with 50s/60s conservative clothing requirements the Order will sadly dissolve in the next generation or so.

    Some interesting stuff on this old thread that was resurrected.

    I highly recommend a relationship with a lady who is a member of OES as I am married to one.

    Of course she joined after we were married many years and after I became a MM, as she has no other Masonic connection. She was, however, recruited into the order. She attended an exercise class and several of the ladies were talking to her, as we had recently moved into the area. It came up in conversation that I was a MM and it just went on from there, as several of the ladies were members of the local OES chapter. I plan to join the Order after my year in the East in my Blue Lodge in 2020. This way my wife, who is currently Associate Conductress will be in the East of the OES chapter and can bring me in!
