Re: We can't get married

Like I said earlier in this thread, I have only heard of one case where a couple was sealed when they weren't married in this life. We watched a movie a year or so ago about one of the handcart companies that had a lot of trials on their journey. I can't recall the name of the film or which company ...

Re: We can't get married

There might be an interesting development going on this week. MJ's daughter (27 y/o) was assaulted by her boyfriend. Since then MJ's "ex" has been staying at her apartment. There's a possibility that he might not really live here again, but I'm not holding my breath yet.

Re: We can't get married

Sometimes I'm a little blunt, and sometimes I think things just need saying. I do disagree with your bishop although as someone already pointed out more than 99% of the time two people of the opposite sex living together are doing the do. But that's not the only thing keeping you from going to the ...

Re: We can't get married

Fascinating. What brought me here was the stillbirth of our third child. I had thought that my children would be blessed protected because of my faithful dedication to the church. I also discovered that it is unknown whether my child counts as a soul (united spirit and body), if she will be resurre...

Re: We can't get married

I have faith/hope all the sealing stuff will work out in the end, but I also see it a little differently than most members do. That part is difficult to explain, so I just leave it at the hope it all works out. I don't have anything to add to the marriage/sealing part because even if you were allow...

Re: We can't get married

First of all, TinSoldier, I'm sorry for the challenges your going through. Secondly, I've been doing family history for a number of years. This is my personal opinion : at some point through our journey through eternity. all of us will be sealed together in one big family. Don't ask me to quote scr...

Re: We can't get married

I was talking about finding a way for us to be sealed by proxy after we die, without us being married in this life. I've only heard of one instance of that happening, but I'd love to hear about others or if anyone knows of this being possible. My personal situation with temple sealings is a little d...

Re: We can't get married

You are correct, I don't see how she could support herself after I pass if we get married. The only way she can claim from her "ex's" Social Security if we get married is if he passes before I do and we don't get married unless he passes away before I do and then we wait until she turns 62. MJ has s...

Re: We can't get married

Being able to get married is, unfortunately, a long-term goal we hope to achieve. In the short-term I'm trying to find reasons to get more motivated to attend on Sundays. I'm generally an introvert and sit alone in the back. A few people know me well enough to greet me, but that doesn't include the ...

Re: We can't get married

Yes there's a lot more. For example, a couple of years ago her estranged husband called her and asked for help getting checked into the state hospital. To make this a little similar, I'll refer to her as MJ and him as G. Over the past several years I've spent some time around G. We lived about 2000 ...
