Marriage


And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him an help meet for him. 
Genesis 2:18



The Family is ordained of God.  Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan

The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave.  Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally.   

The first commandment that God gave to Adam and Eve pertained to their potential for parenthood as husband and wife.  We declare that God's commandment for His children to multiply and replenish the earth remains in force.  We further declare that God has commanded that the sacred powers of procreation are to be employed only between man and woman, lawfully wedded as husband and wife.  

Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children.
