Ethics and Community

Though existing in an ordered community and living with what is effectively a vow of poverty, Sea Org members are allowed to marry but must select a spouse from among other Sea Org members. Should a couple in the Sea Org have a child, they must leave until the child is of age and then may reassume their duties. Sexual relationships outside of marriage may subject individuals to disciplinary action.
