Is it still possible to receive eternal blessings in the afterlife with a spouse who is not a member?
I am a non-member who deeply cares about a member. I’ve personally searched for answers in a God but that answer hasn’t come to me. I don’t dismiss the possibility. The thing I love most about this member is his strong love of the gospel and his devotion to serving others. He is quite the catch but I don’t want to be selfish and interfere with his goals. I might not have answers until I die but I would be receptive with open arms to discover an afterlife. For many, discovering their beliefs is easy but for me it’s not. I strive to have openness and I lead a life with the values of loving and respecting others.
I’m open to supporting this man in his beliefs and I’m open to his desire for children to be raised in his faith. I’ve sat in many church meetings and know good principles are taught. I’ve even read that it’s possible for non-members to hold some callings. These are things I’d be happy to do.
His goal is a temple marriage and it saddens us both that that might not ever happen. I love & respect him knowing it would be unfair to him if I stand in the way of his happiness.
I also know of the temple work done for those who pass away giving opportunities to those who didn’t get those opportunities but would that temple work suffice? Would he still get all of the blessings he’s worked hard for? Would I have the opportunity to find truth and blessings?
