LOL I once sat behind an ELDER who had his hand planted dead on his wifes ass and was rubbing it for the entire prayer. Not half ass, half back... 100% ASS. Did he not think anyone was behind him?!?!?! It was actually gross (They weren't exactly supermodels), I only looked out of sheer shock to see how long it would go on.
Wow... I can't believe the extents they go to to legislate behavior. I cringe at the thought of the awkward situations that are going to come from this. Poor unsuspecting couples being pulled aside for a moment of "loving counsel", and the inevitable "WTF?" looks on their faces.
I actually think it's a good thing that they try to pull this sh!t. I hope my family and my ex think twice about this article, and this pointless pharisaic demand. Because in the words of princess Leia, "The tighter you squeeze, the more planets (or, publishers) will slip through your fingers." This stuff helps JWs to begin to see that they're not in "God's Organization", and that they're really in a high-control cult.
