Marriage - Love at Home

 Some cultures don't stress marriage. It is common for the missionaries to teach couples who are living together or have children together, but for one reason or another are unmarried. As the missionaries teach the lessons for baptism, the principles of eternal family are taught. Once people understand the blessings that are available through covenant marriage, it is an easy decision to get married.

It is wonderful to see a man and a woman make vows of love and fidelity to one another. If faithful for a year, they may see seek a temple recommend from priesthood leaders and have the opportunity to be sealed for time and all eternity.

Enjoy this special musical number by sister missionaries and other Ward members sung in Chuukese at a couple's wedding. Longtime Church members will recognize hymn #294 "Love at Home."
