Dear 100 Hour Board,
I am reading an LDS book (I'm not an member of the church) and I came across an issue in which I wasn't as familiar as I thought. I assumed marriage in the temple WAS a sealing. Apparently you can be married or sealed? Could you clarify this for me? Thanks!
Usually, it is. It's likely that the story is referring to a "for time and all eternity" marriage--a sealing. The terms are often used interchangeably.
Under specific circumstances, though, it won't be a sealing. If this is a remarriage, they may already be "sealed" to other people, so the marriage may be "for time," meaning that the marriage is only for the remainder of their lives.
