What About The Family Unit?


If there are no marriages in heaven, where does that leave the family unit? I lost a baby at 6 weeks old, How will she be in heaven? What about all the family reunions everyone looks forward to in heaven? Will we even be known as we are here?


I am so sorry for your loss. The family unit as we know it on Earth will be replaced by the family of God in which we will literally be brothers and sisters with God as our Father (Romans 8:29). Your baby will be there to greet you along with all the deceased believers of your family. This is the family reunion people speak of. They will be recognizable to you as you are to them. The Bible says we will know as we are known (1 Cor. 13:12) which among other things means we’ll know each other then just as God knows us now.
