Cleaving: The Nature of the Marriage Covenant 04:04 How do we have a Godlike relationship?  What does it mean when we say that marriage is an  ordinance ? Priesthood power involved o Some weddings in Japan are officiated with a robot Created and designed by God o Ordinances are a gateway into His institution  See quotes on slides What does it mean when we say that marriage is a covenant?  The Holy spirit of promise o Is the gift of the Holy Ghost for couples Can help us change our priorities,  Resist temptation  Sense of accountability  o Can enter into the relationship NOW, in this life.  o Helps marriages become rich, whole, and sacred.  Triangle promise, “the Divine Triangle”   o Oneness as a couple promising with God o The focus is doing OUR part Our weaknesses should help us forgive others  o In the sealing ordinance it’s “rites” of marriage, not “rights”
