...As for a sealing "cancellation" - I think they call it a "temple Divorce" and they are rather difficult to get as both parties have to agree. My mother, who is now fallen very far from the church, told my father "there is no way I will ever give you a temple Divorce" so he won't ever be able to have one, but he was still able to be sealed to my step-mom and my half-sister....
Actually there is no such thing as a Temple divorce; the correct terms are sealing cancellation (the woman's request) and a sealing clearance (the man's request).
Sound, balanced teaching is a must. Our default should be to partake. Our default should be to live in joy, not condemnation. Our default should be to love, not to correct, to encourage, not to criticize. (Quote from prisonchaplain)

Dude. When both Vort and MOE are in agreement, the thinking has been done.

I can understand the disappointment, but I'm missing how you were humiliated.
we have been sorely disappointed and humiliated by the process.
Wait - am I reading this correctly? It's not that you won't be able to be sealed to your fiancee, it's that you can't do it as soon as you wanna?
Anyway, the ex purposefully held off responding, it has been a couple months now of being held hostage by an abusive ex and uninspired church policies. Apparently once the bishop decides it has been long enough without getting a response, and once he has ordered a signed certified letter to confirm that the contact information was correct, he will then submit several pages of forms, and then it can take a couple months to get clearance from the first presidency
Again, I can understand the disappointment. But surely, it's possible to understand that the process is there to protect both parties? Sealings aren't frivolous agreements, easily cast aside, right?
Ok, now you're just being silly. Draconian? You do know that word refers to a code of laws which prescribed death for almost everything, right? Whereas in your situation, you just can't go to the temple as quickly as you want?
It is stunning to me that in this day and age this LDS policy on re-marriage, which would have been draconian even by biblical standards
I mean, I'm trying to take you and your frustration seriously here, but once you start tossing around inflammatory nonsense, it gets a lot harder. I'm not trying to dismiss your pain here, but come on. A death sentence is akin to being told no when you want a yes?
And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall.
And I'd discuss the holy books with the learned men, several hours every day.
That would be the sweetest thing of all.
