I've posted before about someone I'm friends with who was going to go to the elders with his girlfriend about some things they've been doing. Well, they got young and very liberal elders who weren't by the book. The experience didn't end up being quite as bad as I prepared him for and they both only got private reproof. (I think all of the advice I gave him that came from you good people helped him manipulate the elders into thinking he was really sorry)
The history to this story is they've been together for a couple years now. He's realized maybe in the last 6 months its a cult and wants out. He knows he has to breakup with his gf, but he's in love with her and so its hard to do. He's been finding reasons to delay breaking up (delayed the elder meeting for 6 months) and now that they aren't DF'ed like he thought was going to happen, he has another reason to delay breaking up until the end of this year. The reason is a friend's wedding they're suppose to be in.
My question is, since they both have been privately reproved, are they even going to be allowed in this wedding? The wedding will not be in the Kingdumb Hell. I know if it was in the Hall, they would not be allowed in it, but I don't know about outside of the Hall.
This wedding isn't the real reason why he's delaying longer, just a justification, but if possible, I'd like to be able to show him this isn't a good reason to delay because of some controling JW wedding rule that'll prevent them from being in the wedding. Does that rule exist?
