Q. I have read several of your articles about life in Heaven after our earthly death and still have a question that I hope you can help me with. I was married 44 years before my wife went to be with the Lord. After several years I was reacquainted with an old high school sweetheart and we are thinking about getting married. The question that has been bothering me is how all this will work when we are all in Heaven. Thank you for all the work you put into your website as it has helped me tremendously.
A. Your marriage contract with your wife was “until death do you part.” That means it expired when she died, so you are free to marry someone else. If you do, that contract will also expire when either of you dies or the rapture comes. In Heaven there will no marriage, nor will there be any jealousy, or any other kind of inter-personal conflict. So feel free to marry if you like and don’t worry about it. Everyone will get along just fine.
