The news of these weddings went international, I read about the weddings in
Australia. Here it was not mentioned that family was LDS or that it was in the
Mesa Temple but from the pictures I knew it was in the Mesa Temple and found it
so exciting. Families are forever, this family shows that love for each other
and is a great example to all of us.
The neatest part is that they were all temple-worthy. Forget the naysayers. I
thought it was great especially the part about withnessing each individual
sealing and how special they made each. Sounds wonderful and very unselfish to
This is Mormon culture at its weirdest, and this is from someone who is LDS.
What a remarkable and wonderful decision they made. There is nothing better than
to be together(especially for this particular reason)as family and extended
family. I would love to have been there to witness the precious spirit that I
know was in abundance with these worthy couples. Wow....exciting and beautiful.
(Part 2)This lovely family did not do this for any publicity. It
wouldn't have gotten out at all except people pay attention when
reservations are made, huge amounts of supplies are ordered, etc. and media
folks like me find out and run with it. Yes, it makes great press, but they
never sought it. As I contemplate the sea of faces in the Celestial
Room after these events, I'm fairly certain nothing they ever see again in
this life will ever be that close to heaven. May God bless each of these unions,
(Part 0ne)Pride? Did you not read this article? Personally, I'd
call your thoughtless remark "judgmental" and as to knowing what women
"dream" excuse me, you do not know any of these brothers, sisters or
their spouses, or what they went through or needed to do to be together on this
day. Had you read the article, you'd have known what was most important to
all of them was to be together as a family, and the only way to accomplish that
was to have the weddings all occur on the same day. I'll put it in simple
terms for you: Suppose you were the grandpa to these three girls and two boys
and they had decided to spread things out-one on each weekend-over five weeks.
Would you have 1) flown back and forth ten times 2) stayed in a hotel for five
weeks, or 3) parked yourself at some relatives home for five weeks? What if they
couldn't quite do five weeks, and split it up over six, ten or twelve
weeks? That would only have made things more difficult.
As cool as that is! I feel it might have taken away the special day for each of
the brides. I know each woman from the time she is old enough to go to school
dreams of her special day of being married. This great that they all married in
the temple but the men should have thought of thier wives first not the notarity
of what they did. Kinda smacks of Pride.
