Ezra wraps up by being commissioned to look into Judah and Jerusalem in regards to the Law. He gathers a large number of "chosen" ones and they go to the Temple to make offerings. They learn that the people have been marrying foreigners and having children with them--not consistent with God's law. Ezra has the men make a covenant that they will no longer continue this practice. The wives and children are sent away.
It doesn't really say what happens to the wives and children. I understand that they broke God's law for them, but it's really sad that families had to break up as punishment...hmm..
