So, I got engaged. Well, I haven’t seen someone in over a year, as they recently got back from Iraq. It didn’t take long before things got ‘heated’. Well we broke the law of Chasity without going ‘all the way’. I want a temple marriage. I’ve been ‘bothered’ for over 10 years. Could that of stirred it? From my crooked past? I mean, Is it possible? Being treated and kinda ‘obeying’ that way? Do you understand what mean? My faith in succeeding in a temple marriage has diminished from It.

Members of the Church believe that marriages performed in temples are sealed, or blessed to last for eternity.
Hi Sister. Thanks for writing me. Congratulations on your engagement! Your desire to be sealed in the temple is also excellent. It sounds like you and your fiancee have made some mistakes that will need to be corrected before you can be sealed. Thankfully Christ's atonement does make repentence possible. Through Him, your scarlet sins can be made as white as snow, as the prophet Isaiah taught.

The next step is to chat with your bishop about these past mistakes. He'll help you apply Christ's atonement in your life so you can prepare for the temple.

Best of luck with your spiritual recovery. God loves you very much and is eager for you to have all the blessings that His church can offer.
