"A marriage, like a human life, is a precious, living thing. If our bodies are sick, we seek to heal them. We do not give up. While there is any prospect of life, we seek healing again and again.
The weakening of the concept that marriages are permanent and precious has far-reaching consequences. I speak out of concern, but with hope.
The same should be true of our marriages, and if we seek Him, the Lord will help us and heal us.
Plead for the guidance of the Spirit of the Lord to forgive wrongs (as President Faust has just taught us so beautifully), to overcome faults, and to strengthen relationships.
The kind of marriage required for exaltation—eternal in duration and godlike in quality—does not contemplate divorce."
A good marriage does not require a perfect man or a perfect woman. It only requires a man and a woman committed to strive together toward perfection.
