I'm sure you know, though, that those who married outside
a meeting were disowned for doing so. This was like a number of
other actions that were cause for being disowned. Another example ws military service of ANY kind. However the disowning could be lifted if a committee of members met with the person or persons, who professed that they knew they had been wrong in their actions. If it was believed that they were genuine in their attitude then it was possible to be reinstated. This was not uncommon after the ARW, when soldiers came home. However.
If the individuals either did not confess their error or were not deemed genuinely contrite, they remained disowned.
