Lds dating scenarios

A concept of celestial marriage was described by Emanuel Swedenborg as early as 1749.Swedenborg's Latin term conjugium coeleste was translated as "celestial marriage" by John Clowes in 1782.

Craig Miller has investigated the possibility that Swedenborg influenced Joseph Smith, as there are similarities between some of their teachings.In 1998, the LDS Church changed the policy and now also allows women to be sealed to more than one man.A woman, however, may not be sealed to more than one man at a time while she is alive.According to church teachings, the celestial marriage covenant, as with other covenants, requires the continued righteousness of the couple to remain in effect after this life.If only one remains righteous that person is promised a righteous eternal companion in eternity.
