Does marriage just last through this life, then when we die, it's over?
If life continues after we die, and if there is a heaven, why does marriage just last "until death do you part"? If husbands and wives really love each other and their children, wouldn't a loving Father in Heaven want them to have a way to be together in heaven? Can you imagine living your whole life with a loving marriage and family, and then go to heaven to be alone without a family?
God has revealed that marriage and families can continue for all eternity in heaven if certain conditions are met.
