Gossip and Slander
Gossip and slander by workers tears down marriage relationships and encourages adultery.
One of the biggest problems in the cult is that workers are not trustworthy. Workers insist on staying in people's homes (rather than getting their own). As a result, they hear and listen for things above their trust-worthiness.
Workers tell other 2x2s about what they hear in those homes. New workers coming into the field will often share their bias with new workers rather than let the new workers make decisions on their own.
People's marriage issues etc are blabbed to elders and their wives in the field.
It is common knowledge that the workers are the biggest gossipers around. The workers don't have meaningful employment to keep themselves busy so they get involved in business that isn't theirs.
This makes marriage issues harder with all the gossip. When workers don't like one person in a marriage, then they may slander them to others in the field, dropping hints here and there to turn people against them. When workers belittle others with issues, then it makes it even harder for them to get help for their own problems.
