Imagine that in an alternate HSDS timeline, Chiu Mun never interfered with Cheung Mo Gei and Chow Chi Yerk's wedding and the couple were married as planned. The Leader of the Ming Cult would have been wed to the Leader of the Ngor Mei Sect.
What would that mean for chain-of-command protocols for both sects?
Would Chow Chi Yerk, as Cult Leader Cheung Mo Gei's wife, have any authority over the Ming Cult's members?
Would Cheung Mo Gei, as Sect Leader Chow Chi Yerk's husband, have any authority over the Ngor Mei Sect's members?
And what if, some years down the line, Cheung Mo Gei also assumed leadership of the Mo Dong Sect after Cheung 3 Fung and all of the remaining Mo Dong Heroes had passed away?
