Marriage in heaven is settled. There is none. But what does marriage constitute anyway in Jesus' statement? Wasn't he addressing a particular issue re marriage? I'll obviously exclude the act of sex, and very probably the anatomy. But assume most peole think will we recognize a spouse. That means we can differentiate among people who are there. If so, will not some people be more dear to us than others or will everyone we encounter effect us equally? Is there no measure for even love? Does my enduring love for my spouse. Does the the 2 fleshes/spirits that had become one become absolutle nothing?

Since the legalites of the law/death/heaven viz marriage are addressed rather sparsely by Jesus and Paul, why is there the inclination by most to reduce the relationships between humans in heaven to the simplistic equation: marriage in heaven = no special realtionship? This wasn't even addressed by Jesus or Paul. At worst I think we can't or don't know anything on the finer subject. At best we don't know the power and infinite, prodigal generosity of God - espcially concerning our love for spouses. Especially since God is Love, the two most important commandments are about love, Paul wrote that Love endures all things, and our faith is founded in Love.

Matt 22:23-30 Makes it clear that in Heaven we are not related to each other in the same way we are here.

Consider this: If it were otherwise, and a person was predeceased by several spouses, which one would be the spouse in Heaven?

Shucks! I was hoping to trade my legs for wings my car wouldn't be coming with me and I hate walkin lol, just a thought MP not Gospel!

The scriptures say there will be no giving of marriage in heaven. But that, to me at least, does not mean we will not reconize our spouse(s) nor that we will not have relationships. It will just be very different, our love for each other will be perfect beause we will be with the one who loves perfectly, we won't be worried about who was married to who -- it won't matter since all our spiritual and emotional needs will be met by the Lord our God.

Chris Stacey, the problem there is that many people have had more than one husband or wife, so who would be the other half in making up the 'couple'? Would it be first husband/wife, last, which one inbetween or all of them making a family group? Better to leave it up to God. All believers will love each other and get on just fine, regardless of their relationship to each other here on earth.

Do you not believe that we will still be together as a couple even though no sex ? I believe we will.

Carla, where does it say in scripture that we become angels when we die? Many people tell their children this but it is not scriptural I am certain. But you are correct about the 'no more crying, pain etc.' Misty, there will be no marriage in Heaven so it will not matter how many husbands or wives people have had on earth. We will all recognise our saved loved ones but as brothers and sisters in Christ, not spouse, grandma, daughter etc.
---M.P. on 5/6/06

Well this is where we all become as God intended, angels alike, no marriage there b/cos we will be Gods angels, thank goodness, no more crying,dying, sorrow,pain, picking up smelly socks on laundry floors LOL
---Carla5754 on 5/5/06

It will be fully revealed but I believe we will be in the marriage to the Lamb, not to each other... all God's children will be married to the Lamb , as long as our garments are spotless.. this is THE wedding of Christ and HIS bride.. His church.. Him and us.
---karin on 2/21/06

Lighten up people, it was a joke. There will be no marriage to our spouses in heaven. For in Christ we will all be brothers and sisters in Christ. The only person we will be married to is Jesus Christ.

I think our friend A Catholic has a sense of humour?
---alan8869_of_UK on 2/20/06

A Catholic, Do you need to go to confession for that fake verse and reference? LOL!
---Ulrika on 2/20/06

If you are saved and your first husband was saved then you will meet in Heaven. That is to say you will know each other, recognize each other, have communication with each other, of course you will not be married to your first or your second husband in heaven. In heaven we will be like the angels, sexless. It's a mystery now but it will all be joy then.
---mima on 2/20/06

Besides not being married any longer in heaven, we will have new bodies. 1Corinthians 15:50-54 1Thessalonians 4:13-18 We will not have a sin nature any longer.

Ummmmmm....A Catholic....where do you come up with Acts 30, since there are only 28 chapters in Acts?
---Ann5758 on 2/20/06

In Acts 30:25, it's written that when a woman marries twice, in heaven she'd have to do the laundry for both husbands.
---A_Catholic on 2/20/06

Since you are not in a married state in Heaven what difference would it make? See Matthew 22:29-30; Mark 12:24-25
---Phil on 2/20/06

There will be no marriage in Heaven. We will recognise each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. I don't think we will think of each other as mother and children, husband and wife or anything like that, just all God's children, saved through the blood of the Lamb.
