10 Mormons Share Why They Were Sealed in the Temple

Have you ever driven past a Mormon temple and wondered what happens inside?

Temples are holy places of worship where members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints participate in sacred ordinances performed by the authority of the priesthood. Temple ordinances lead to the greatest blessings available through the atonement of Jesus Christ. One temple ordinance is celestial marriage, in which a husband and wife are sealed to one another for eternity.

Corrine, California. Married August 2010 in the Bountiful, Utah temple.


“I wanted to marry my husband in the temple because we both believe so passionately in forever families. I wanted to know that when we die, that’s not the end, but we get to be together forever and that our kids are stuck with us forever too, haha. I lost Neil once when we broke off our engagement and it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I knew when we got married I never wanted to lose him again.”
