When I was a JW, a friend of mine lost her mother to cancer and her father was also suffering with cancer. Within a couple of months, a "sister" in the congregation hooked up with her dad and married him.
It caused great distress for my friend because this new wife told them that according to JEHOVAH, the 32 year marriage with her mother and raising a fmaily and children meant nothing.....NOTHING.....and her new marriage with the father was the bottom line. The new wife then abandoned the father with cancer, spending weekends away from him and denying his daughter the right to care for him during his illness. She inherited all his worldly possessions AND his pension.
This JW teaching that a 30+ year marriage with children means NOTHING to God if a new wife comes along.....is horrible. My friend went through hell, she cried as she asked me who her dad would ask for when he was resurrected - her mother or this new wife who didn't give 2 hoots about him......I told her if he was resurrected, his first thoughts would be of his first wife and his children and grandchildren. The new wife could go to hell, as far as I was concerned.
It was one of the things that made me question the organization's "legality" issues.....seriously? Where is the humanity?
