Sexuality and Mormonism
Mormon Funeral Customs, Traditions, and Rituals
Sexuality has a prominent role within the theology of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints LDS Church , which teaches that gender is defined in the premortal existence , and that part of the purpose of mortal life is for men and women to be sealed together, forming bonds that allow them to progress eternally together in the afterlife. It also teaches that sexual relations within the framework of opposite-sex marriage is healthy, necessary, and ordained of God. In contrast with some orthodox Christian movements, sexuality in the Church's theology is neither a product of original sin nor a "necessary evil". In accordance with the law of chastity , LDS Church doctrine bars sexual activity outside of heterosexual marriage. The LDS Church teaches its members to obey the law of chastity , which is a code of morality and modesty. Under this code, all members are taught to be "morally clean in their thoughts, words, and actions" and to abstain from pornography.

Eternal marriage means that Mormons believe that if we are married with proper Priesthood authority in a Mormon temple then God will honor our marriage not just on earth, but also after we die and are in Heaven.
