Lifelong member raised in the church, mission, temple marriage. I'm just done and want out. But I need to know what leaving the church will do to my marriage legally. I don't want a divorce. We don't want a divorce. My husband supports my decision to resign my membership, but is fine with remaining an inactive member himself. Would we need another marriage license? Would this cancel our temple sealing and make our marriage license invalid?

Hi JuliaWms3839, no need to worry, yourselves will still be married. Like it not! Heh, you made me laugh...

Lol, don't even start, look how many peeps would quit if it invalidated marriages in the law's eyes. Somebody's messing with you on April Fools Day, aren't they?

Funny girlz... lunch with you gals must be a real blast!

JM is right, It would mess up their heavenly stuff but it won't have any impact on the earthly legal stuff, unless it's a problem between you and your husband.

Peace

Since the temple procedures were ALL cobbled together by a con man from New York State, why would you ever consider it legally binding(in any way) for you and your hubby?

A marriage license filed with your State or Province can't be undone by breaking away from the religion rituals. It would cancel the sealing, but not the legal marriage license.

Thank you for the responses and clarification. My concern is genuine as I sincerely didn't know how this would affect the legality of my marriage license. I'm glad some found humor in the topic.

Of course you're being sincere and genuine and forthcoming, that's the beautiful thing about practically every Mormon person everywhere. We're all just such doggone nice folk.

Ready to please. Glad you found a little nice suprise, never want to miss an opportunity. :) :) :)
