my words are not needed

"The Prophet Joseph Smith often referred to the feelings that should exist between husbands and wives, that they, his wives, should be his bosom companions, the nearest and dearest objects on earth in every sense of the word. He said men should beware how they treat their wives, that they were given them for a holy purpose, that the myriads of spirits waiting for tabernacles might have pure and healthy bodies. He also said many would awake on the morning of the resurrection sadly disappointed; for they, by transgression, would have neither wives nor children, for they surely would be taken from them and given to those who should prove themselves worthy. Again he said, a woman would have her choice; this was a privilege that could not be denied her."

"I don't think the Temple ordinance guarantees that [we] will be together forever. There will be a time before that sealing of the Holy Spirit of Promise makes it eternal, where we will be in the presence of the Savior, as individuals, and there will be a choice whether we continue with the sealing or not. I want to do everything in my power to qualify so that [my wife, Jeanene] will choose that sealing to be eternal."
