The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced that time-only marriages in the temple will no longer be performed.
The discontinuance was addressed in a Monday, May 24, letter to General Authorities; General Officers; Area Seventies; stake, mission, district and temple presidents; and bishops and branch presidents.
In the past, time-only marriages were only performed for those who had been previously sealed to a spouse who had passed away. Both people had to have good standing with the Church, temple recommends, and a marriage license. This practice, however, has been discontinued as of today.
The First Presidency in a letter stated:
“A temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the house of the Lord. It is a holy place of worship where individuals make sacred covenants with God and receive promised blessings. These covenants and blessings are eternal in nature.
