Sealing to Multiple Spouses

#1

Post by samuelaraki »

OK, perhaps the thread topic is misleading, but I have looked far and wide for the answer to this and can't seem to get it.

The situation:

We have a brother in our ward who was previously sealed to his wife (his first and only marriage and sealing). She has passed away, and now he is engaged and would like to be sealed again.

The sister (his fiance) is a recent convert and has not been sealed before.

The question:

Does the brother need any special permission or does a special form need to be filled out, or is it just like any other sealing process? (like he'd be going through for the first time?)

The answer to your question is on page 85 of the Church Handbook of Instructions, Book 1. Specifically, at the bottom of the left column.

Could you post what it says or send me a message about it, please? I'd tell my Bishop that he can look in his handbook but he's at work. And I'd like him to have the answer before he actually meets with this brother tonight.

Hi SurreyThird,

It basically says that (given the facts you have indicated) the man does not need special permission (or a sealing clearance) from the First Presidency.

Good to go.
