    Some marriage mates might discreetly hold hands, but if they embraced each other during public prayer, those who got a glimpse of such conduct might be stumbled.

    Remembering vows from JW weddings, I recall that a wife purpose is to further her Husband's ministry. That is straight from the GB. None of this "love" crap, just help him get dressed so he can go out in service and be "used" until he makes Elder.

    Holding hands during prayer contributes to cohesiveness of a group.

    The thing about the wits is that they are not really very bright. When something like this comes along they are so starved for cohesiveness that it goes over the top. I would be uncomfortable with hugging face to face during prayer, but come on, holding hands?? Fact is the LEADERSHIP is so closed up that they are squeamish about any show of emotion.
