“No ordinance connected with the gospel of Jesus Christ is of greater importance, of more solemn and sacred nature, and more necessary to the eternal joy of man than marriage in the house of the Lord.”

Lasting Happiness Is Possible “”While marriage is difficult, and discordant and frustrated marriages are common, yet real, lasting happiness is possible, and marriage can be more an exultant ecstasy than the human mind can conceive.” Spencer W Kimball

Sometimes mothers will not relinquish the hold they have had upon their children, and husbands as well as wives return to their mothers and fathers for advice and counsel and to confide; whereas cleaving should be to the wife or husband in most things, and all intimacies should be kept in great secrecy and privacy from others.”” (Marriage and Divorce, pp. 24 – 25.)

“Indeed, the satisfying sacredness that is possible within marriage is but one illustration of the gospels unique yet profoundly re-assuring doctrines: the Lord seeks to satisfy, everlastingly, our deepest human longings. This theology assumes that most of lifes natural delights are evil reflections of a fallen world, hence the false medieval idea that the highest form of spiritual life is to reject marriage, to deny other human passions, and to withdraw monastically from the world.” Bruce C. and Marie K.
