The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that eternal love is more than a poetic notion, it is God's greatest desire for His children. To qualify for this blessing, Latter-day Saints believe a husband and wife must work together as equal partners, serving each other and obeying the Lord. In this sermon, given at the April 2003 General Conference, F. Burton Howard celebrates the complete investment an eternal marriage requires.
If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it... You don't make it common or ordinary... It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.
