What abandoning a waṭan means

Q: What is meant by abandoning one’s waṭan? If a girl gets married and travels with her husband to the place he wishes, will it amount to abandoning her waṭan?
A: It means leaving one’s waṭan with the intention not to return to live there. Her mere going to the husband’s house in another city does not entail abandoning her original waṭan.
