In 1965 my cousin 's wife (they had one kid) committed adultery with a married brother (he had two kids and his wife was not a JW) in their congregation and they got divorced. I'm guessing it was my cousin that filed for the divorce. The two sinners moved in together and eventually got married. They were reinstated within two years. My cousin never fully recovered from this and was never much of an active JW. The other two however were eventually looked at as pillars of the congregation. I know because about 5 to 6 years after the "sin", I became a JW in that very same congregation in a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA. This whole scandal was the topic of the community. What really was the icing on the cake was the fact that she is white and he is black and back then, interracial couplings were really frowned on by society.
He eventually became an elder and was PO of the congregation in the 1990's into 2000 something and he really "lorded" it over the congregation. He had most of the congregation practically bowing to him. By then I was already out. The wife was one of the biggest troublemaking gossips in that KH along with a few other "sisters". It seems like some people brush their wrongdoing under the table.
