Congratulations. This is exciting! May you find great happiness together.

I am surprised at how fast they appear to have got government permission to marry considering the husband is not a US citizen. It took my wife and I six months to get the appropriate documentation and paperwork done, and I expect up to another decade to complete the legal immigration process.

Good luck and best wishes for Elizabeth and her husband.

Congratulations and best wishes to Matthew and Elizabeth on their marriage! The Laie Temple is so beautiful and peaceful, a wonderful place to be married with their families present. I wish and pray for them a long and happy life together, with love forever.

Please, leave this poor woman alone. There's no need for this story or any future stories unless she seeks it. Enough...

Best wishes to you, Elizabeth!

This is news and on your Web site, how? It wasn't news when she was engaged. It wasn't news when she finished her church mission. It's not going to be news when she's pregnant. It's not going to be news when she and her husband buy their first home. It was news when she testified in her case. And when she speaks out about kidnappings and keeping children safe. But now the DNews thinks every move she makes is, at least on the Web, front page. It's really not. Congrats to them as a couple, but please...this is not news.

Congratulations to a happy couple, and may they find well deserved joy and peace together.

Now, please, Deseret News, leave this fine youg woman and her husband alone. Let the papperazi and the tabloids harry them, but as a class act and nomional LDS Church news outlet, set the example and just let them get along with life without further media scrutiny.

They essentially eloped to Hawaii? I love it!

Shame on you DN. No bride needs that detail about her life in the paper on her wedding day. A simple report, " Elizabeth Smart was married today, the DN wishes her well.". Is all that was needed.

Spanish Fork, UT

This is gr8 news, so happy for them, that they were able to start their new lives in some privacy.

Mesa, AZ

Thanks DN for bringing the joyous news!

God bless them abundantly. Elizabeth has shown the power of God's guidance to forgive those who have harmed us and our enemies. She is honored, not for the attacks, but forher peace through the whole ordeal. God's wisdom is powerful and Elizabet is a good reminder.

Provo, UT

Congratulations Elizabeth. The Laie Temple is beautiful.

Steven S Jarvis: She has known him since her mission. That has been a couple of years now. I'm sure they had the appropriate documentation.

Congratulations Elizabeth! May you & your husband have a wonderful life together!

Smart is what they are! Good move, to marry far away from here. Congratulations!

i sponsored my wife in 1999 from Mexico, and then it took 6 months to do the fiancee visa and about 2 years to get permanent residency-and she was eligible for US citizen at 3 years after marriage (as my spouse) if I remember correctly.

Salt Lake City, UT

I appreciate the brief updates on this remarkable woman, and I wish the couple all the best life has to offer.

I also see the wisdom in using these press releases and updates as a preemptive strike against the paparazzi and those who would sensationalize this story, rather than report it with grace.
