We have had some interesting discussions lately about how much information an elder's wife should be told about elder board business. Some feel that since the wife is not elected to that position, she really doesn't have any more right to know the inner workings and matters of the board than any other church member. Others feel that since the husband and the wife are one, and she is his support and helpmeet, she should be privy to just about any information he has, but it should go no further.
I lean toward not informing them and practice that myself, but if they are to be informed, then the church should know that elder discussions are shared with the elder's wives. This would seem to be a matter of integrity.
Anyone dealt with this topic before? Any thoughts?
