For mankind’s destiny-
All marriages between 
a man and a woman,
Are central to God’s plan 
Having all come from Heaven
This grand foundational doctrine
Populates the world with love
For children come from above
This makes sacred the word marriage
Holy, for the home to cherish


Mormon Family — The concept of a united family that lives and progresses forever is at the core of Latter-day Saint doctrine. Within families led by a father and a mother, children develop virtues such as love, trust, loyalty, cooperation and service.http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/blog/mormon-images-available-for-use
Mormon Temple Marriage — Members of the Church believe that marriages performed in temples are “sealed,” or blessed to last for eternity.

Marriage is a gift

Given from above
From it do not drift
Give it all your love

If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements. You don’t make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.
Eternal marriage is just like that. We need to treat it just that way. I pray that we may see it for the priceless gift that it is, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Expressions of love
Show we are thought of
Daily simple acts
Make warm what attracts

What’s rough becomes smooth
The goal- to improve
Appeal to reclaim
And keep love aflame

A damaged marriage is still precious
As a living, breathing thing
Through the miracle of Jesus
It’s healing, He can bring

One to be shaken up
The other to see the light
To endure the bitter cup
And number our days aright

A marriage, like a human life, is a precious, living thing. Spouses should exercise faith in Christ and love for each other to heal and strengthen their marriage relationship.  Jeffrey R. Holland
