A family member that is a elder told us that now two spousal abuse charges (filed with the police) is a dfing offense for the abuser, and that they are free to remarry (I assume he means the elders won't df the victim for adultry). I assume this is local elder margin of your PA book eddicts. Because the watchtowers official stance has not changed. The reason he told us was to warn a family member about their spouse bait them into abuse*. So I am taking this as accurate info at least for our circuit.
*I am not going to explain more about their problems, and i am not blaming the victim, but it is the case of who did what first/ self defense type thing that takes too much analization to figure out who is the victim. If you want a clean JW divorce under this new policy it is easy for a person to orcastrate a violent incident by "acidentaly" spiting on, violent gesturing, pretending to hit, or what ever.
